Looters have been targeting foreign-owned shops in Johannesburg CBD since the beginning of the week.

The protests are a continuation of the violence that broke out in the Pretoria CBD last week, when taxi drivers took to the streets in reaction to the news of the death of a fellow driver who was allegedly killed by Nigerian drug dealers, Briefly.co.za reported.

Despite this, rapper Nadia Nakai says she hasn't felt unsafe or unwelcome while in Nigeria.

Nadia was a tad disappointed when she wasn't really recognised by Nigerians, but looks forward to the day she won't need an introduction in the country.

She took to social media to say that she hasn't feared for her safety at all.

"I was in Ojuelegba just yesterday and never did I feel unsafe or not welcome… they knew I was South African!"

Meanwhile, it is feared that some Nigerians have called on terrorist group Boko Haram to attack South Africa following the looting of foreign-owned shops. The foreign nationals are fighting back and threatening to call on the infamous group to unleash revenge.

The issue remains tense and Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C have both pleaded for xenophobic attacks to stop.
