Burna Boy has been a major topic in the SA entertainment industry this past year.
This is majorly because of the rather controversial comments he made after the xenophobia incidents that occurred this year. The Afro-beats star even went as far as threatening his early collaborator AKA saying that he should have security the next time they met.
Burna Boy swore never to step foot in South Africa ever again but then backtracked on his comments by accepting to perform at the Africans Unite concert being held in Pretoria. It seems as though this just might not happen although no official statements have been made yet.
Apparently some artists booked for the event are refusing to perform at the concert alongside Burna because of his threats towards AKA. One of the representatives of the Tshwane Entertainment Collective spoke on ENCA were he revealed that some artists do not want to perform alongside Burna Boy because of the threats he made towards AKA.
South African artists don’t want to share a stage with Nigerian singer Burna Boy at the “Africans Unite” concert. The Tshwane Entertainment Collective has written to the Arts and Culture Minister to object his inclusion. Katlego Malatji explains. pic.twitter.com/oPAHWYLU25
