Burna Boy Asked to Apologize to South Africa
By Olamide Fadoju
Nigerian Superstar Burna Boy has been asked to apologize to South Africa for his comments during the recent Xenophobic crisis in the country.
South African Rapper, AKA, made this demand via twitter on Thursday after Burna Boy announced he will be in South Africa for a concert having earlier sworn never to set foot in the country.
AKA tweeted, “I am willing to swallow my pride and put an end to this division. @burnaboy Are you?”
“... all we want is an apology. We know South Africa is not perfect. But we took you in as our own before you reached these levels. You say you are an AFRICAN GIANT, prove it.”
Burna Boy in a twitter rage in September had promised to stay out of South Africa until the government addressed the Xenophobic issues in the country.
“Today After watching the Killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans.
“And because of that, I have not set foot in SA since 2017. And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes up and really performs a miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.”
The Self-proclaimed African Giant also went on to threaten AKA after the South African rapper was accused of posting Xenophobic tweets.
Burna is yet to respond to AKA’s demands. He is scheduled to perform in South Africa at the African unite Concert from November 23-24.
Part of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to victims of the Xenophobic attacks.
