South Africans had on Sunday begun fresh attacks, looting and burning of businesses and properties belonging to foreigners and in the process killed three people, while another is still receiving treatment for smoke inhalation.

Concise News earlier reported that Malaysian-based Nigerian philanthropist Hushpuppi  slammed celebrities over their ‘silence’ on the attacks.

Taking to his  Instagram handle, Hushpuppi wrote “After you all will want to post them and claim they are your besties, FUCK ALL MY SOUTH AFRICAN FRIENDS THAT DONT SEE THIS AS A PROBLEM AND FUCK YOU NIGERIAN CELEBRITIES THAT DONT SEE THIS AS A PROBLEM ENOUGH TO SPEAK ABOUT TILL NOW”

The celebrities have however taken to their Twitter handle to condemn the situation, with some saying Africans are their own problems.
