Tiwa Savage cancels trip to South Africa after Xenophobic attacks

Singer Tiwa Savage has cancelled a trip to South Africa over attacks on Nigerians and some other foreigners.

” I refuse to watch the barbaric butchering of my people in SA. This is SICK. For this reason I will NOT be performing at the upcoming DSTV delicious Festival in Johannesburg on the 21st of September, she said on twitter.

“My prayers are with all the victims and families affected by this.”

The Zambian national team on Tuesday also cancelled a friendly football match with South Africa after recent xenophobic attacks.

This follows a travel alert issued last week by the Zambian High Commission in South Africa to Zambian truck drivers wishing to travel to that country today following reports that they are being threatened with violence.

Sporadic violence against Nigerians and foreign-owned shops and enterprises has a long history in the country.
