2Baba called out people attacking Nigerian celebrities for not ‘speaking out loud‘ about the current xenophobic attacks of Nigerians in South Africa.
The singer stated that it is absurd that the anger that should be directed to South Africa is directed to people in the entertainment industry.
He also said one doesn’t have to be a celebrity before they step up to fight for people’s rights, afterall, Nelson Mandela wasn’t a celebrity.

“I no be celebrity spokeman but it’s absurd to me that we are not facing the root cause of all this madness by some stupid and backward thinking south Afrcans but rather channeling the anger towards hard working africans that are doing their normal business of entertainment.
“If U can speak up, that’s cool but i don’t get why u have 2 start coursing and harassing people who haven’t. YOU DON’T KNOW THEIR PAINS. Was Mandela a celebrity b4 he started fighting for his people?
“How can we AFRICANS get out of this massive mess is what we should collectively start seriously tackling.
“Lets all stop pretending that we don’t know we are still seriously mentally enslaved through politics, media and religion.
“We are fighting each other and instead of finding the main solution we are fighting more. Many artist are tired of shouting “Africa unite” from Bob Marley to Fela and many other greats till date.
“Xenophobia is unacceptable and we must deal with it from the source. If u get mouth use am. Celebrity or not.”
