Ex-Big Brother Africa Housemate, Tayo Faniran Accuses S.A Rapper, AKA Of Xenophobia

Two days ago, the Bafana Bafana of South Africa lose to the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019) and popular South African rapper, AKA took to his twitter page to rant on how painful it was for South Africa to lose to Nigerian again for the umpteenth time.

The rapper expressed his displeasure at how his country’s male football team lose the match to the Super Eagles. He further stated that he would have preferred to lose the game to Egypt rather than Nigeria because as a country, Nigeria keeps beating his home country, South Africa at every given opportunity.

He tweeted;

I’m fucking gutted. 💔

I’m hurt man. This match was bigger than football.

The biggest rivalry on the continent. Why do we always have to lose against Naija at EVERYTHING.

It’s a hard pill to swallow man. We keep on losing to Nigeria in every way. 💔

We should have just lost to Egypt … rather than Nigeria.

Reacting to the tweet, former Big Brother Africa housemate, Tayo Faniran – called the South Africa rapper out on his Instagram page and accused him of xenophobia. Tayo stated that AKA’s tweets are highly xenophobic and were a pure display of illiteracy.

In his words;

These are highly xenophobic statements,pure display of illiteracy,spoken like a low life from the corner,definitely not an African role model,I’m disappointed in you AKA,we are preaching peace and all you do is to spit out this dirty nonsense? …

you see when I mentioned that deep down many of these African stars that we support with our money and minds actually hate us foreigners,I wish all your Nigerian fans can see this 😡😡😡


this is how they start these xenophobic attacks over nothing,what a shame
