The MTN Project Fame host further wrote, "It can only destroy us as a people, if these South Africans do not know the ripple effect their actions might have to their brothers and sisters spread across the globe. I hear this was all incited by one man, apparently the Zulu King Incited the violence in Durban. I do not know what would have spurred up such hate, we need to stand up against this. We as Africans are unique and though diverse in culture and traditions we are one formidable force. United we conquer and stand, divided we fall and destroy legacies built over time which has made us the pride of the globe. My name is Joseph Benjamin, I am a Nigerian by birth and Nationality. I am a true African and I say No to Xenophobia. If you support this movement. Like and repost this until it goes viral. Let us preserve our posterity."
