Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has joined the celebrities who have added their voice to the recent xenophobia attacks on Nigerians.
According to the actress, many countries have registered their hate for Nigerians because of their strength and intellectual prowess, so they will do anything to harm them because “your strength reminds them of their weakness”
She added that, the loathe from countries like South Africa and the rest should never slow them down.
“Some people don’t like you just because your strength reminds them of their weakness.
“Don’t let the hate slow you down,” she said on her Instagram platform.
The award winning actress in her caption, pleaded with Nigerians that ‘it’s time we believed in ourselves’ as she advised them to come back to Nigeria, use their resources effectively and show South Africa how it is to live without them
She said, “A life with us isn’t the worse thing. They need to see one without us. They’ve shown us countless times who they are. Let’s believe them.
“It’s time to show them who we are. But most importantly, it’s time we believed in ourselves. They see our potential; our greatness. We need to see it too.
“It’s tough out here I know, but sooner than later we’ll have to realize it’s all we’ve got. We have to make sure our energy and resources are beneficial to all things Her.
“We can’t ignore the signs much longer. Change is inevitable. Let us stay ahead of it. #LongliveNigeria”
