Afro-Fusion act, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy is not taking it kindly with fellow Nigerian artiste, Jude ‘M.I’ Abaga and South African rapper, AKA over comments made as regards the xenophobic attacks of Nigerians and other African nationals by South Africans in Johannesburg.
Burna Boy, the ‘Anybody’ crooner took over his Twitter account for a few moments to express displeasure over the crisis which has seen many lose their lives and properties worth billions of Rands to irate South Africans.
He blasted AKA, the South African rapper and termed him pro-xenophobic while blasting M.I for saying that AKA loves and respects Nigeria.
Also.. I can speak honestly in saying my bro @akaworldwide loves Nigeria.. taken out of context his tweets can be misinterpreted.. however he loves and respects Naija!!!

Ok. I have been away from social media personally until today. Ordinarily at a time like this, I should come here and say something to try and calm the situation because my Dream has always been to Unite AFRICA and make us realise that Together we will Literally rule the world…
But Today After watching the Killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. FUCK ALL THAT! I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans and because of that…..
I have not set foot in SA since 2017. And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.
This goes against everything I stand 4, but at what point do we take action? I understand that years of Oppression has confused South Africans to the point where they see the pple who came to their defence during their Oppression as their Enemies and then worship their oppressors
Imma just get off Twitter now before I take yall back to the Old me.
Lemme also say that there are some South Africans who are Amazing, Progressive AFRICAN people and I will forever Love them like I Love myself. But they are not many at all.
And to my Brothers and sisters I am not encouraging any Violence or anything but please PLEASE Protect and Defend yourselves at all times, it may not seem like it but there’s always a way. Management will now take back control of Burna Boy’s Social media. God bless AFRICA ✊🏾
Other Nigerian artistes including Vector, Skales, Peruzzi, YCEEand MTV’s presenter, Ehiz had also made strong statements about AKA’s comments about the crisis.
