While some celebrities are of the opinion that businesses belonging to South Africans be boycotted by Nigerians, rapper YCee says it is not the solution to xenophobic attacks.

Concise News earlier reported that South Africans 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.

The news of the attacks, which has been buzzing on social media platforms, generated outcries as many Nigerians, including celebrities, have clamoured for boycott of businesses owned by South Africans such as MTN, DSTV, Shoprite.

However, YCee, on his Twitter handle, is of the view that boycotting the businesses will affect the livelihood of Nigerians who are working there, adding that the government is saddled with the responsibility of protecting its citizens.

He tweeted, “Everyone screaming boycott this and that forgetting that these businesses here are still employment opportunities. The solution behind this lies in diplomatic conversations! It is the government’s obligation and duty to take immediate action. ”
