Last month, a xenophobic attack on Nigerians living in South Africa sparked outrage from Nigerians, especially some celebrities. One of these was Burna Boy, who did not hesitate to express his anger at the happenings in the country. Burna Boy also called out South African rapper AKA for some of his insnsitive tweets during the period.


In a now-deleted tweet, Burna Boy threatened to deal with AKA next time their paths crossed. He advised the rapper to ensure he has security, suggesting that AKA would need it.


Burna Boy wrote,

“And @akaworldwide I knew you was retarded but I didn’t know it had gotten this bad. Next time I see you you better have a big security bro, On Gambos Grave ur gunna need it.”


The outraged “Ye” crooner also vowed not to set foot in South Africa, except a miracle happened.


“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 the f**k up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.”

So when word got out that the African Giant, Burna Boy, will headline the African Unite concert set to hold in Cape Town and Tshwane next month, AKA had a few things to say.


AKA, who sarcastically expressed his delight to attend the event, dared Burna Boy to live up to his threat.


In a tweet, he teased, “I would love to attend this show and watch this man put his hands on me in my own country.”



When a fan asked AKA to bury the hatchet, he responded, “I wouldn’t mind at all… He must just apologise so we can forgive him.”



The rapper then posted a screenshot of Burna Boy’s now-deleted tweet, saying, “See you soon @burnaboy.”





Other artistes scheduled to perform at the African Unite concert include Jidenna, Kwesta Busiswa and others. Jidenna is currently on tour promoting his 85 To Africa album, will be performing at the concert.


Africans Unite is a collaborative project that aims to rebuild trust and respect among African nations by changing the current narrative to that of unity and solidarity. Presenting the event are South Africa’s Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, in association with Channel O. It is also powered by Play Network Africa.


Africans Unite will take place in Cape Town at The Lawns on the 23rd of November and Tshwane’s Sun Arena on 24th November 2019.


Meanwhile, on Tuesday, 22nd October 2019, three Nigerians and other foreign nationals suffered from fresh xenophobic attacks on foreigners in different locations of Witbank, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa.
