See the South African companies in Nigeria that will suffer if Nigerians react on the xenophobic attacks

Nigerians are starting to react to the series of xenophobic attacks launched on their people in South Africa. In truth, these attacks have sparked a whole lot of all over the world.
South Africans have become intolerant to Nigerians living in the country with the numerous attacks the latter have been subjected to. The prospect of travelling outside Nigeria to hustle is appealing to most Nigerians; but to think that Nigerians, being Africans, could suffer from the hands of other Africans like them in South Africa is unthinkable.

Although most of the South African cities are listed as parts of the most dangerous cities in Africa and all over the world, the crime rate in those parts tower above the levels of crime recorded in other places. Nigerians in diaspora used to feel a certain kind of safety outside their home country in the past; however, xenophobia has changed everything for the thousands of Nigerians living in South Africa.

The South African government has been asked to put an end to the xenophobic attacks in the country; over a hundred Nigerians have lost their lives to these ugly events and it is shocking.

Nigerians have kept quiet over the matter for a while because they wanted to promote peace at all cost. However, things have gone beyond repair with the constant threats made on the lives of Nigerians living there. We have considered some of the reasons Nigerians are being attacked in South Africa.


Not doing anything about the ethnocentric acts of South Africans will not do the South African government and business owners any good as there are some South African companies firmly rooted in Nigeria.

Check out the prominent South African companies that will be affected if this xenophobic attack continues:

1. Shoprite

Shoprite is a chain of retail outlets that has taken over almost every state in Nigeria. Known for the wide range of groceries they supply, this company is at risk of being affected if Nigerians choose to react to the killings of their love ones in South Africa because it is owned by a South African.

They may also protest for the brand to be taken away from the country if the best thing the South African government can do is to watch Nigerians getting killed even though they are tapping from the Nigerian economy.

2. MTN telecommunications

MTN is a known telecommunication company in Nigeria even though it has South African origin. Already, the National Association of Nigerian students have asked the company to go back to its country because of the attacks.

If South African citizens cannot tolerate Nigerians and other people not from their country, the students think there is no point extending any form of kindness towards them. The body seeks to denounce the attacks and warn off other nations who may want to underrate Nigerians.

South African companies have been given an ultimatum to leave the country as a result of the xenophobic attacks. Nigerians have been bullied for too long according to them and that must stop.

3. DSTV

This is another company traced to be from South Africa. Like MTN, this widely patronized brand has close competition. If Nigerians revolt, it will affect their business here.


These are the most prominent South African companies in Nigeria. Others that are not popular in the country will also suffer a similar fate

And I read an article basically saying don't give up on your passion no matter how hard it seems and so on.

How I Escaped Being Murdered By A Fellow Rapper – Yung6ix

Rapper Yung6ix, has opened up on how he was almost murdered by a fellow rapper in his home.

Speaking with Saturday Beats, the rapper, said he is yet to understand why his friend decided on murdering  him.
“I don’t know why my friend would want to kill me but that was one of the most shocking moments of my life. It happened at the studio in my house; I just came downstairs and the next thing I saw was my friend with a gun. I called him but he did not reply. Then I saw the look on his face. He came with some other people. The guy by his side just took the gun from my friend’s hand because he noticed that my friend was already having a change of heart and he did not want to shoot me. When the guy took the gun, he tried to shoot me but I was lucky the gun jammed, so everybody ran away.
“To be honest, I don’t know what could have made him want to kill me. The only issue I think we had was not enough to cause any issue. I was shooting the video of one of my songs in Abuja the same day he was shooting the video of one of his songs that he featured me. I told him that I couldn’t be there for his video because I was working on my own video. I told him that once I returned to Lagos, I would make sure I shoot my part of his video and I would take care of the cost. It was when I got back that he came to my house with a gun.”
He continued:
“They moved him out of our estate because he lived near my house. The police later told us that estate residents had been complaining about him and that they did not want someone who walked around with a gun living in their estate. That was how he was evicted from the estate and I felt bad about it.” 
“All that is behind me now and I am thinking of my new projects. I have my record label and a sponsor because immediately I left Storm Records, I decided to be on my own without relying on anyone. Along the line, somebody came to support me financially in the person of Prince Mefe. I decided not to be like other conventional artistes who would rather be very established before signing new acts. Every step I take, I want someone to grow with me the way Olamide also brought some guys up as he was becoming big as a star. Already, I have four artistes signed to my record label, KKTBM, and they are LK Kuddy, S.H.E, Percy, and Sean Dennis.”
