AKA Quits Political Commentary On Social Media Over Burna Boy Beef

Burna Boy

South African rapper, AKA, has claimed that he would not longer take part in political discourse on Social media following the beef with Burna Boy.

The African Giant confirmed that he would be performing in South Africa, information that AKA was upset by, demanding an apology from the Afro fusion artiste, for his tweets during the Xenophobia scandal.

Burna Boy, in a series of tweets, claimed that he would not be apologizing for his tweets as he merely told the truth.

He said in one of the tweets: “Let’s not act like xenophobia is not real in South Africa, let’s not act like Nigerians, Tanzanians, Zimbabweans and many other AFRICANS have not been victims in the last three years. Please Let us all do our part to Unite Africa.”

He was accused of misleading people with his tweets, another statement he vehemently disagreed with saying in another tweet: “saying I mislead people? And I made up the Xenophobic attacks and I should apologise. Really? Lol. In 2015 Even I was a victim of the misguided hate so I know. Go and demand apologies from your REAL Enemies. I am not your Enemy. I will not be called “foreigner” I am AFRICAN.”

Burna Boy also warned that there’s nothing anyone can do about his coming to South Africa and that he can only be stopped if he is killed.

Meanwhile AKA said he was disappointed in the leadership of South Africa especially the arts and culture department and Julius Malema, the leader of of the Economic Freedom Fighters who guaranteed that Burna would be protected at all costs.

AKA amongst other things said: “One thing that has been particularly worrying is the silence from my own leadership, especially the department of arts and culture. It truly is up to us, the people, to solve our own problems. I have not been led, I have been left to lead.”

Let’s hope this whole thing can be dropped.
