Nigeria's Burna Boy promises to thoroughly beat up rapper AKA when he comes to SA


The upcoming Africans Unite concert has elevated the beef between rappers AKA and Burna Boy to a whole new level. The two have not seen eye to eye since September, during the height of xenophobic attacks in SA. At the time, Burna Boy said Nigerians were being killed and urged other African foreigners in SA to protect themselves.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, the Nigerian rapper said he would not perform in SA until “the government wakes the f**k up”. When AKA took him on, he told him to “beef up his security”.

Burna's claims were refuted by police, who told TimesLIVE that of the 12 people killed in the attacks, 10 were South Africans, one a Zimbabwean and the other a Malawian.

About a week ago, the two rappers trended again after AKA called on Burna Boy to apologise for his September tweets. This came as Mzansi learnt of Burna making the Africans Unite concert line-up. The event takes place at the Sun Arena in Pretoria on Sunday.

From responding to “threats” to asking for an apology, here are five tweets from AKA on the feud:

We must unite

Act on your “threats”, Burna Boy

You were wrong, apologise

Let's make peace
