MI Abaga has apologized flowing heavy backlash he received for supporting South African rapper AKA.
A tweet by AKA concerning the xenophobic attacks suffered by Nigerians in South Africa was supported by MI Abaga to the dislike of Nigerians on social media.
He was also given a knock by Burna Boy who called him out for his action.
Taking to social media to issue an apology, MI Abaga wrote:
‘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’
