#Xenophobia: “I have been insulted & threatened so much” – MI Abaga apologises for supporting AKA
Nigerian rap legend, MI Abaga has officially apologised to his fans and Nigerians for his tweets in support of South African rapper, AKA who was insensitive to the plight of Nigerians in the wake of xenophobic attacks.
In his words, MI Abaga tweeted, ‘to everyone I offended yesterday I apologise.. It is always the right time for healing. I hope we can begin to listen to each other and discuss real lasting solutions. I know I will’.
I have been insulted and threatened so much. And though a part of me wanted to turn to anger. I know that it was a test for me to lead with love. We have to see past our hurt into our hearts and fight hatred with love.
Last, I pray that we will all have someone that will speak the truth on our behalf in spite of the repercussions. If I did so in error God will judge. But courage is being able to say no when everyone else says yes.. no matter the personal cost..
