Xenophobia: South African rapper, AKA, tells Burna Boy to prove African giant status by apologising

South African rapper, AKA

South African rapper, AKA, has demanded an apology from Afrofusion star, Burna Boy, ahead of a scheduled performance in South Africa.

Burna Boy had on September 4 in the heat of renewed xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa vowed not to step foot again in the country until the government takes drastic measures to stop the attacks.


The musician is now set to hit Pretoria on November 24 to perform alongside Jidenna and South African rapper, Kwesta, at the Africa Unite concert.

AKA, who has been at the centre of the clash between Nigerian artistes and their South African counterparts over xenophobia, early Thursday via a tweet asked Burna Boy to prove his claims of being an African giant by apologising for his comments in September.  

“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,” he wrote.


Burna, however, said in a post on social media that the proceeds of the concert in South Africa would be donated to victims of xenophobic attacks.

“Sun Arena, Pretoria! The first of many! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of xenophobic attacks by me! I really hope we can all keep contributing in our own way to make the world a better and safer place for each other. #Africansunite, it’s bigger than all of us,” he wrote.
