Some South Africans are calling for Nigerians to leave their country after a video showing a woman, believed to be South African, twerking for some Nigerian men went viral.
The hashtag, #NigeriansMustFall is currently the number 1 trending topic on Twitter as of this moment.
South Africans are using the hashtags #NigeriansMustFall and #NigeriansMustGo to call out Nigerians as they also blame them for the rot in their society.
In the video that’s sparked outrage, a lady is seen pulling down her pants to twerk for some Nigerian men. The lady twerking is also seen with lipstick between her butt cheeks as she danced for the men who can be heard speaking Yoruba.
Some South Africans have reacted to the video accusing Nigerians of different things, including drugging and raping their women. Even when some of them pointed out that the woman doesn’t look like she was forced to twerk, others shut them down and stated that, even if she wasn’t forced, she probably must have been drugged.
Some other South Africans came to the defence of Nigerians and accused their countrymen of xenophobia. They pointed out that femicide is on the rise as South African men kill their women and get away with it. But those people were also shut down as South Africans passed the blame to Nigerians.
Nigerian Twitter users have apprised Nigerians residing in South Africa to be careful as the hashtag could snowball into violence.
Below is the video that caused outrage and reactions to it.
