Toke Makinwa has joined in condemning the renewed xenophobic attacks carried out on Nigerians living in South Africa by indigenes.
The media personality took to Instagram to reveal that her “heart is broken” by the attacks. She mentioned that South Africans live and work in Nigeria and are allowed to thrive.
She went on to ask the South Africans who have shown her love to “stand up for what is right.”
We are all Africans, this is such a huge blow, it’s like we take 10 steps forward and 50 back. We have come so far from the dark ages yet we kill each other, just hearing about the Xenophobic attack in South Africa and my heart is broken, I cannot even begin to watch the gruesome videos, why?
Why so much hate in the world? Why do we compete so much it becomes less healthy and more evil, what exactly is the point to all the killing? I love the people of South Africa, I know so many hardworking South Africans and you all have shown me love and so I implore you all to stand up for what is right.
We all cannot continue in silence, if hate lingers nobody wins. Our doors have been nothing but welcoming to you all, we have so many South Africans living and working here, we make music together, promote our fashion to the rest of the world explore both cultures. Now let’s come together to fight this evil in our midst. We are all Africans, a win for us is for us to the world. United. This is so sad, so disturbing, so painful. One Love
