South Africa’s firebrand opposition politician Julius Malema has tweeted to reassure Nigerian music star Burna Boy of his safety if he visits South Africa next weekend.

He tweeted:

“Looking forward to receiving and being entertained by my brother @burnaboy here at his home called South Africa. There’s no mascot that can stop him from performing, he’s one of our own and we will protect him. We must resolutely oppose regionalism led by political illiterates.”

The Afro-fusion star is listed to perform at the Africa Unite concert on 24 November in South Africa’s capital, Pretoria, two months after he vowed on Twitter never to set foot in the country.

He had been angered by xenophobic attacks targeting foreigners, that were widely interpreted as targeting Nigerians. The tweet has since been deleted.

South African rapper, AKA has been leading a campaign to get Burna Boy to apologise for his remarks.
