The attacks have raged like wildfire, devouring foreign blacks from Durban to Johannesburg. Many people have joined the clarion call to stop the attacks, but no appeal has been as heartfelt as Irene Logan’s recent video message.
In a video message, the “I fell in love with the devil” singer recounted her migration from Liberia during the civil war and wonders what would have happened if Ghanaians were xenophobic.
She further called for a boycott of South African businesses, in order to urge the SA government to act swiftly on the matter. Irene Logan said she cancelled her scheduled video shoot in South Africa as she wishes to stay away from xenophobia.
The vocalist also called on her fans to condemn xenophobia and for all celebrities to use their voices as a medium for change.
