- Lvovo has spoken out to lend his support to the growing #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement
- The trending hashtag is calling for the government to prioritise South Africans
- Many social media users are in agreement with Lvovo's views
Lvovo has publicly shown his support for the #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement and slammed those who think it is xenophobic. The muso believes that South Africans have suffered enough.
He took to Twitter to show his support for #PutSouthAfricansFirst. The movement calls on the government and those in business to prioritise citizens, especially in terms of employment.
Lvovo said that South Africans need work before they can accommodate visitors.
“I'm for everyone, kodwa South Africans must come first in everything! That's where I stand! Enough is enough."
The kwaito artist said that prioritising locals was in no way xenophobic or discriminatory. He also added the hashtag was not meant to incite violence.
“We love our neighbours. We are true Africans! But let's fix local issues first."
Many social media users welcomed his stance. MxoMlotshwa said:
"You're absolutely right Mr Dirango."
"Most people who oppose putting South Africans first don't stay ekasi and their children go to good schools. They're not affected by the effect of not putting South Africans first. Thina here siyasokola and even the media is turning a blind eye."
"Charity begins at home. How can our leaders be happy that they are loved by outsiders but their own people are not happy?"
"Thank you bro, it’s a no-brainer that South Africans should be put first."
"South African celebs are just hypocrites, they are always preaching support local content, demanding SA radio stations play their music and not American music, but it's an issue when ordinary citizens demand the same when it comes to jobs."
