Nigerian Afropop singer, Burna Boy has been refused participation at the anti-xenophobic concert in South Africa unless he tenders a public apology to South Africans.
South African rapper, AKA worldwide and other South Africans, took to Twitter to demand the apology owning to Burna Boy’s previous declaration to never visit South Africa again.
Ek se … @burnaboy all we want is an apology. We know 🇿🇦 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.— AKA (@akaworldwide) November 13, 2019
Recall that in the wake of xenophobic attacks in September, Burna Boy had said he would not visit South Africa unless the government resolves the issue.
He also had a face-off with AKA, threatening to go physical with him if their paths ever crossed.
The concert tagged “Africans Unite” is expected to hold on Sunday, 24 November 2019 at Time Square Casino, Pretoria, South Africa.
Reports say that the event organisers including other musicians have rejected Burna Boy’s inclusion while others asked that he simply apologise for his outburst before visiting their country.
