Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage & More Distance Themselves From SA Over Xenophobic Attacks

The recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa have not only gotten the attention of the African continent but they have gotten the attention of the world. Last night was quite heavy on social media as Nigerian artists such as Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Ycee, Davido and more expressed their hatred towards the xenophobic attacks towards Nigerians in SA. AKA was also topic of conversation as artists such as Ycee and Burna Boy called him out for being “xenophobic” towards Nigerians in previous tweets that have since split many. Tiwa Savage has even cancelled her performance at the upcoming DSTV delicious Festival taking place in Johannesburg on the 21st of September. Burna Boy was also recently announced as a headliner for this year’s AFROPUNK JHB but it seems that he might miss that.

Peep some tweets below.
