Nigerian rapper, Ycee and his South African counterpart AKA have engaged in a war of words over the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Ycee started off by by downgrading South African men due to their actions against foreigners.
”I don’t rate South African men at this point … and I’m not trying to create any form of animosity between us and them (that they don’t already feel against us) It is really sad that In 2019 Xenophobia is what we are still facing and discussing as a problem.
”Worst part of this thing is South Africans (or any other foreign nationals) will never feel unsafe in Nigeria. We even treat foreigners better than we treat ourselves, which I believe needs to change. The rest of the world doesn’t respect us Cos we don’t respect ourselves
He then used the opportunity to throw a jab at rapper AKA who threw tantrums months back after South Africa lost to Nigeria in an African Nations Cup game.
”There is this subtle dislike that a lot of them (If not all) feel towards Nigerians and no matter how hard they try to hide it .. it eventually jumps out – like when AKA had a full childish grown man tantrum when they lost to Nigeria in the nations cup
In response, AKA shared a picture of him idolizing Nigerian legendary Afrobeat musician, late Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
As if to prove that AKA’s show of affection for Fela doesn’t translate to love for Nigerians, Ycee shared screenshots to remind him of his tweets against Nigeria.
