The war of words between AKA and Burna Boy was reignited after it emerged that the Nigerian star would be performing at the Africans Unite concert here in Mzansi

In the wake of widespread xenophobic attacks in September, comments AKA made in reference to a soccer match between SA and Nigeria went viral. The comments resurfaced after a tweep used it to show that xenophobia allegedly exists in all South Africans.

During the uproar, Burna Boy threatened AKA and vowed to “never” set foot in SA again.

Burna Boy seems to have U-turned on his controversial comments as he has been announced as part of the line-up in the Africans Unite concert, which takes place in November in Cape Town and Pretoria.


The line-up includes Kwesta, Jidenna, Busiswa and others.

As news of Burna Boy’s trip to the country spread, AKA took to Twitter to remind him of the threats he made a month ago. The Baddest hitmaker cheekily taunted Burna Boy, saying he would “see him soon”.

“I would love to attend this show and watch this man put his hands on me in my own country,” AKA added in another tweet.

Social media users also called Burna Boy out on his statements about “never setting foot in SA ever again”:
