AKA, South Africans rejoice as Burna boy's concert is cancelled

Few days to Burna Boy's concert in South Africa, organisers have announced that he has been withdrawn and the concerts in Cape Town and Tshwane cancelled.


In a media statement issued, the organisers said that after extensive engagement with Burna Boy’s management team, they had decided to withdraw the Nigerian artist from the concert and cancel the shows.  

There have been mixed mind and opinions over the show after Burna boy attack AKA during Xenophobia issue. Burna boy as at them said that he will never stop his foot in South Africa.


“The decision to cancel the Africans Unite Concert comes after the call from the Tshwane Entertainment Collective to boycott the Africans Unite concert in Tshwane.

With the increasing threats of violence from other unfortunate segments of the public and without any government intervention, Phambili Media and Play Network Africa were prompted to take the threats and warnings seriously, as the safety of all artists and attendees could not be guaranteed.

We then decided to cancel the concert. The safety of all attendees, artists and crew comes first.”

Burna Boy's inclusion on the line-up was widely criticised after rapper, AKA took to social media to lead a campaign against him.
