Song had intended to play for West Ham against Manchester United in their FA Cup fourth round clash but, after the Cameroonian FA refused to release the player, will instead play in his nation's World Cup qualifier against Togo.
"People come up and say they will kill us if we don't play for our country," Song stated. "They are not happy if players do not want to play for Cameroon.
"West Ham have been good to me but the supporters of Cameroon do not think like that.
"It's not nice for us if we get death threats, but it is because the fans are so passionate about their team.
"I would have liked to have played against United. They are the best in The Premiership. I hope that West Ham can win without me."
