Popular station Hot FM Zambia says it will not play music by South African artists "in light of the xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals."
The Zambian radio station, Hot FM Zambia, says it will cease playing music by South African artists due to the current spate of xenophobic attacks in the country.
"In light of the xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals in South Africa, Hot FM will cease to play music by South African artists on our airwaves until further notice," wrote the station, described as "number 1 for news and entertainment" in a post shared on its Facebook page.
"All African nations, whether Frontline states or not, stood by our South African kindred during their time of need, and together we embraced UBUNTU. Africa is one, and until such a time that our South African counterparts embrace UBUNTU again, our stand will be with all our African brothers being attacked and terrorized in that country."
