Basketmouth arrived at this decision because of the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa where many Nigerians have fallen victims to.
Taking to his Instagram account to announce his decision, the renowned comedian who holds Degree in Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Benin, Edo State 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.
