Rapper AKA has received a number of death threats from Nigerian nationals amidst the ongoing xenophobic violence in parts of South Africa.

It all began when popular Nigerian artist Ycee voiced his opinion on xenophobia and condemned how it was still a problem in 2019.

“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,” he wrote.
