There seems to be raging war among Nigerians and South African rapper AKA on social media.
Burna Boy who had been off social media for a minute revealed how disappointed he was especially at a time when he was making all attempts to unite Africa through music only for some South Africans to run the efforts of many like himself in the mud.
According to tweets sighted by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com, Burna Boy recounted how Nigerians and other Africans rushed to the defence of South Africa during Apartheid only for them (South Africans) to rather attack people who defended them and worship their oppressors.
Although Burna Boy states he knew AKA was retarded, he asserts he never knew it had gotten that bad. He then issued a threat asking him to have a ‘big security’ the next time he sees him and swore on one ‘Gambos Grave’
Check the tweets.

With the recent developments on Xenophobic attacks in South Africa, an old tweet by rapper AKA during the African Cup of Nations which sought to question why Nigerians always triumphed over South Africa popped up with many calling him out.
Just like himself, Nigerian rapper M.I. Abaga and OvieO believe AKA’s tweets have been taken out of context and misrepresented.
In @akaworldwide ‘s defense, his “sibling rivalry” tweets about losing to Naija were just that. No hate whatsoever. I absolutely detest losing to Ghana, Cameroon or S.A. Doesn’t mean I want their businesses destroyed, or their ppl killed or driven from my country.
