Nigerian comedian Basketmouth has cancelled his upcoming appearance at the Comic Choice Awards in South Africa.
He arrived at the decision because of the ongoing xenophobic attack in South Africa where many Nigerians have become victims.
Taking to his Instagram to announce his decision, the renowned comedian wrote:
“I’m not sure how and when we got here. I won’t be attending the comic choice awards this weekend in South Africa as scheduled,” he stated.
“It might sound like a whisper but together our voices and the right actions will hopefully make a true difference and real change can begin.”
His decision comes barely hours after singer Tiwa Savage also announced that she has canceled her forthcoming DSTV Delicious concert in Johannesburg, South Africa.
