South Africans Protest Burna Boy's Inclusion in 'Africa Unite' Concert


Some South African artistes and showbiz personalities have called for a boycott of 'Africa Unite' concert because of Burna Boy's inclusion.

The concert is billed to hold on November 29 in Pretoria, South Africa.

Burna Boy and South African artiste, Kwesta, are billed to headline the two-day concert.

Said to be powered by Channel O, Africans Unite is a collaborative project which aims to rebuild trust and respect by changing the current narrative about the continent.


Burna Boy found himself embroiled in the social media reactions against the xenophobic attacks when he made a bold statement about never setting foot in South Africa again until its government acts against the attacks.

According to the event organizers, Burna Boy said he is now determined to lead the conversation towards reconciliation.

Burna recently tweeted that the proceeds from the concert will be donated to victims of the xenophobic attacks.

His tweet read, "The first of many! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of Xenophobic attacks by me! I really hope we can all keep contributing in our own way to make the world a better and safer place for each other. #Africansunite , it's bigger than all of us now".
