South African rapper, AKA has reacted to what he claims was the official count of dead persons from the recent xenophobic attacks in his country.
In a Tweet which he shared today, the music star uploaded a screenshot by a South African based media outlet that stated that 12 persons died from the unfortunate incident.
The report claims that 10 of those who died were South Africans while the other two are foreigners.
"10 South Africans dead in last two weeks violence … zero Nigerians. Twitter made you turn on your own country," the rapper who in the past week was under serious fire on social media, said.
Moments later he followed up his initial post with a plea asking everyone to put their differences aside and come together to solve the problem.
"How’s about we put all this nonsense behind us and come together as AFRICANS once and for all huh?❤️.
"Now that we know it’s mostly South Africans who died in the past two weeks violence … it’s almost like it’s okay. We have a disgusting problem with our own self confidence and with violence. What a mess.
"Even South African celebrities were duped into thinking we were mass murdering foreigners. I wonder if they will now turn around and send condolences for their own dead countrymen and women."
