Nigerians Blasts AKA For Demanding Apology From Burna Boy

Nigerians and their South African relatives are feuding yet again on Twitter, and this time is not about Xenophobia it is all because of their star, AKA and Burna Boy.

 

In case you missed it: yesterday a crop of South African artists protested Burna Boy’s inclusion in the upcoming Africa Unite concert set to hold in their country.

Their qualms with that inclusion is because of Burna’s comments during the spate of xenophobic attacks in South Africa. In a series of tweets, he urged foreigners living in SA to defend and protect themselves against xenophobic attackers. He also threatened AKA during a heated exchange in now deleted tweet.

Which is why local artists have a problem with his inclusion in the concert.

Now, AKA has asked the Nigerian superstar to apologise for his tweets and South Africans on Twitter agree with him. But their Nigerian relatives have rejected this.

See AKA’s tweet:

AKA

@akaworldwide

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.

If you ask those South Africans what they want an apology for, they’ll say “Burna Boy insulted S.A”

But did S.A not insult itself by becoming Xenophobic?

If you were Burna Boy, won’t you do the same?

You see this thing they call common sense, It’s scarce
