Burna Boy will not perform at Africa Unite concert, Unfortunately, the show against xenophobic attacks in South Africa has been cancelled.

Phambili Media and Play Network Africa took the collective decision to cancel the concert which will have taken place on November 23rd, for security reasons. A press statement on the cancellation of the concert was issued by the organizing body, linking the decision to an increased level of pressure and threats.

“The decision to cancel the Africans Unite Concert comes after the call from the Tshwane Entertainment Collective to boycott the Africans Unite concert in Tshwane. With the increasing threats of violence from other unfortunate segments of the public and without any government intervention, Phambili Media and Play Network Africa were prompted to take the threats and warnings seriously, as the safety of all artists and attendees could not be guaranteed. We then decided to cancel the concert. The safety of all attendees, artists and crew comes first.”

Burna Boy was first withdrawn from the concert, but, the organizers proceeded to cancel the entire concert to avoid any violence against attendees and artists on the bill. The Africa Unite concert attracted a lot of eyeballs on the continent after Burna Boy spoke against Xenophobic attacks in South Africa in September.

Likewise, he promised not to ever step foot in the country unless the government takes action against the violence which was been faced by foreigners, from other African countries. This led to a back and forth tweets between him and South African rap musician, AKA.

Hence, after his decision to perform in the country, AKA and music fans demanded an apology from him, which he refused and stood by his claim that he did nothing wrong.

Burna Boy has revealed earlier on, he will be donating part of his money from the concert to victims of Xenophobia.
