Rapper Aka is demanding apologies from Burna Boy on behalf of South Africans.

Burna boy will be performing in South Africa in a few weeks and AKA is demanding Burna Boy give a personal apology for the things he said.

In a series of tweets in September, Burna Boy urged black foreigners living in SA to defend and protect themselves against xenophobic attacks. In a now deleted tweet, he also told AKA to beef up his security, before giving him the middle finger.

He promised to never set foot in SA again until the government “wakes the f*ck up and really performs a miracle”. However, a month later, he was announced as part of the Africans Unite line-up to “unify all Africans and speak out against femicide”. The event takes place in Pretoria on November 24.

As artists and event organisers, under the umbrella of Tshwane Entertainment Collective, this week slammed Burna Boy’s inclusion on the line-up, AKA took to Twitter to ask him to apologise.

Burna Boy has yet to respond to the request.

The Fela in Versace star said SA took Burna Boy in “before he reached these levels” and challenged the Naija star to prove he is an “African giant” by apologising.

AKA said he was willing to swallow his pride and asked if Burna Boy was willing to do the same.

The SA rapper said he reached out to Burna Boy because he was older and wanted to make sure no harm came to either of them if they visited the other’s country.

AKA has previously said he will not apologise for his part in a Twitter exchange with Nigerian artists at the time of the xenophobic attacks.
