South African music will no longer be played by a Zambian radio station as revealed on social media.
Hot FM from Zambia said that they will cease to play South African music on their airwaves until further notice.
“In light of the xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals in South Africa, Hot Fm will cease to play music by South African artists on our airwaves until further notice.”
The radio station proceeds to share a time in South Africa when all African nations stood by them in their time of need and together everyone embraced Ubuntu.
“All African nations, whether Frontline states or not, stood by our South African kindred during their time of need, and together we embraced UBUNTU.”
Hot FM Zambia finally made it clear that until when the country will embrace Ubuntu, then they will continue to stand with other African brothers who are attacked in places like Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa.
The stand comes barely a day after the country canceled a match between them and Bafana Bafana following the xenophobic attacks.
Zambians also took to the streets to protest the merciless killings of foreigners causing shut of many businesses and schools.
This week Nigerian artists Burna Boy and Tiwa Savage vowed not to set foot in the country and canceled an upcoming concert respectively.
Burna Boy admitted to having been a victim of xenophobic attacks and for that reason, he won’t set foot in the country again.
Tiwa Savage who was scheduled to perform in September canceled her performance calling for an end to the violence.
