Following the forthcoming ‘Africa Unite’ concert to be held in South Africa, SA rapper, AKA has demanded Nigerian Afrobeat star and the ‘African giant,’ Burna Boy to apologise to the good people of South Africa over Xenophobic comments made months ago in the heat of the Xenophobia attacks.
This is coming hours after the news of how some South African artists petition minister of arts and culture kicking against inclusion of Burna Boy at the concert.
Recall in a series of tweets in September, Burna Boy urged black foreigners living in SA to defend and protect themselves against xenophobic attacks. In a now deleted tweet, he also told AKA to beef up his security, before giving him the middle finger.
According to AKA South Africans took Burna Boy in “before he reached these levels” and challenged the Afrobeats star to prove he is an “African giant” by apologising.
“Ek se … Burna Boy. All we want is an apology. We know SA 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,” he wrote.
