Bibi’s call comes on heels of the recent xenophobic attacks in some parts of South Africa on Nigerians and other foreigners which many celebrities have also spoken against.
In a post on her Instagram page, the actress wrote: “Just left the Glo office! Ported my number from MTN (South African) company to Glo (my brother Nigerian) company.! Today it’s Nigerians, tomorrow is maybe Ghanaians in SA been killed! Let’s not wait till it’s our turn!”
She added: “Ghanaian celebrities throw your weight behind Nigeria! The pain these videos caused me as a Ghanaian, I can imagine what our brothers and sisters in Nigeria are going through! No one deserves to die this way. This is too much! For South Africans to do this to us? This isn’t their first time! It will not be their last!”
Bibi Bright concluded by tagging all her celebrity friends: “I urge all my colleagues to entreat their fan base to port from Mtn to Glo!”
