(Corrected)“xeNOphobia”!!! My heart aches hearing stories of the xenophobic attacks in South Africa. We Africans should be finding ways to progress together as Africans to make the world a better place for us and the generations after. Family and community are at the core of any African culture so it breaks my heart that we will be violent against each other for no reason. Owing to the present situation and out of respect to the victims, as we find ways to put an end to this, I’ve decided to move the release date of my next single, Karma to a much later date. We all need to do better towards each other. #peace #oneafrica #love #saynotoxenophobia
