AKA's demand for apology
AKA's demand for apology

Some Nigerians on Twitter have come hard on Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, South African rapper better known as AKA for demanding an apology from Burna Boy.

On Wednesday, AKA took to his Twitter handle to call out Burna Boy to apologise for threats and condemnatory comments made during the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

In the wake of the heightening tension between both nations, Burna Boy had said he would never visit the country until the problem is resolved.

He also threatened AKA for his “inciting” comments after Nigeria defeated South Africa at the 2019 AFCON.

Yet, some weeks after Burna Boy had made the “outrageous threats”, he was billed to headline the ‘Africa Unite’ concert, a diplomatic music event to hold in South Africa in a bid to quell the tension between citizens of both countries.

The rapper’s demand has dominated the conversation on social media platforms especially Twitter as it currently tops the trend list.

As of the time of filing this report, Twitter is inundated with quite a number of Nigerians who appear unwilling to accept the request from AKA that Burna Boy should apologise to him and the people of South Africa.

“AKA didn’t sleep all night. Trying to get Burna boy’s attention but Burna boy is busy catching flights whilst the nigga is catching emotions,” a Twitter user said.

“AKA trying so hard to resurrect his dead career through Burna Boy. You want him to apologize for what, don’t even know Why Africa unite is at South Africa? Why not somewhere else,” another user said.

Here are top reactions from the trend:

Y’all know that toxic person who plays victim cos you reacted to what they did to you?

Yeah, that’s what some South Africa tweeps and AKA are

Asking Burna Boy to apologise? Please ask all Nigerian victims of Xenophobia to apologise too so we know y’all are the true victims. https://twitter.com/akaworldwide/status/1194764460348469253 



Ek se … @burnaboy all we want is an apology. We know 🇿🇦 is not perfect. But we took you in as our own before you reached these levels. You say you are an AFRICAN GIANT, prove it.

Everyone keeps saying Burna said he won’t ever come to SA, without quoting him to the full stop of that tweet.

@akaworldwide is right this time. He made so much noise about not going to SA and couldn’t even last one concert.

He needs to apologize for the lack of sincerity as well. I’m appalled he is going to SA after all that. https://twitter.com/chydee/status/1194853658837626880

This guy is actually very stupid. I mean, instead of doing something about the xenophobia, the countless femicides, etc., he wants Burna to apologize for speaking against xenophobia. Spits. https://twitter.com/akaworldwide/status/1194764460348469253

South Africans are Unapologetic with their Xenophobic Attacks, they enjoy attacking fellow Africans & get support from their Govt & Celebrities but they want Burna Boy to Apologise for saying he is tired of seeing his People Get Killed.

Fuck Them Niggas 😑

If you ask those South Africans what they want an apology for, they’ll say “Burna Boy insulted S.A”

But did S.A not insult itself by becoming Xenophobic?

If you were Burna Boy, won’t you do the same?

You see this thing they call common sense, It’s scarce

Burna Boy was retaliating over xenophobia and SAns are saying he “threatened the nation”. But Sjava is a whole abuser. Da L.E.S was on the rapist list with a couple of others but they can perform wherever. South Africa is a joke

AKA needs to understand that this ain’t his concert and he doesn’t own a country, until the South African govt says otherwise Burna Boy would perform and he’s not gonna do shit about it.

So AKA want a whole Burna Boy (African Giant) to apologize for saying what he said while your people were performing xenophobic on us?

Can somebody even remind me who AKA is again because it sounds like a confused man who doesn’t have a name…

I really feel like they both childish. Burna boy should stay away from AKA and AKA should stay away from Burna boy. At the end of the day they both suck anyways🤷🏾‍♂️

Burna Boys concert sold out here in England last year and sold out last week in Wembley again. Trust, he doesn’t need this nonsense. His bag will be fine.

Lilith’s Kin@Bad_Bunny97

If SA artist “made” Burna, why so some of you still only have 31× LESS the listeners he has on Spotify? If you’re that big of a deal that you “make” someone, you wouldn’t still be internationally unknown. Sometimes shut

Burna boy was frankly out of order during those attacks but AKA tweeting for apology is childish..of course Burna should apologize if he is wise but AkA needed not be the one to beg for it… That sucks
