Yvonne Chaka Chaka distances herself from xenophobic article.

Yvonne Chaka Chaka has strongly condemned a recent report claiming that she issued a xenophobic-filled statement

An article appeared online and on social media which quotes the singer as saying ‘all foreigners must leave South Africa’.

The music legend took to Instagram to rubbish the report in a video.

She said; “Does that really sound like me? I live and work in Africa. This is my continent; my roots are here in Africa”.

Yvonne then scolded the writer in a scathing message.

“Whoever wrote the article; you are full of hatred, you are full of anger. You are just fueling hatred. This is fake news!”

This is the second time this week Yvonne has spoken out about xenophobic attacks

Earlier this week the Umqombothi singer shared an emotional post about her daughter Fortunate whose shop in the Johannesburg CBD had been ransacked in a recent attack

Alongside a series of pictures showing the damaged property, she wrote; “I am dumbfounded, confused frustrated and have lost faith. People protesting broken into my daughter’s shop and looted. All in the name of ‘foreigner must leave SA’ .No man is an island my fellow brothers and sisters we all need each other. Too much lawlessness. What is this world coming to. Life has become so cheap no respect for life and for one another. God have mercy

Fake news must fall!
