Burna Boy Will Headline A Concert In South Africa Despite His “Xenophobia Tweets”

Burna Boy tweeted that he will not step foot in South Africa

Despite Burna Boy’s tweet two months ago where he stated he would never set foot back in South Africa, the Nigerian superstar will headline the Africans Unite concert in Mzansi (South Africa).

The concert was announced this week and will include performances from Kwesta, Jidenna, Busiswa and many more.

Last month following reports of alleged xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Burna Boy took to social media to express his anger.

In a series of tweets, the star said that Africans needed to stick together but also said that he would not set foot in SA.


During the week of the xenophobic attacks, numerous celebrities and influencers across Africa spoke out against the attacks, the most noticeable voice being from Nigeria’s Burna Boy who urged the two governments to come together and put an end to the pain, hostility and violence.

“As we have our leaders working towards uniting Africa, it is important that we see each other as brothers of the same soil and come together and unite Africa. We must recognise and accept our differences as a continent and people of diverse cultures and love one another regardless. Both indigenous and non-indigenous businesses should be able to thrive in every country on the African continent – that way we will become the most formidable continent on the planet,” said Burna Boy.

Presented by South Africa’s Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, in association with Channel O and powered by Play Network Africa, Africans Unite is a collaborative project that aims to rebuild trust and respect among African nations by changing the current narrative to that of unity and solidarity.

Africans Unite will take place in Cape Town at The Lawns on the 23rd of November and Tshwane’s Sun Arena on November 24.
