APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT? Twitter users Attacked AKA

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:

David@UyiDm2

@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 

Chidi Okereke@Chydee

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

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 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

Nd Lomaski@NdLomasky

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

Yahoo boy Dies after Barking like a Dog-watch video

Wonders shall never cease to end. Many have heard stories of ritualists coughing to death, but what will one say about man barking like a dog and died afterwards?

This is the story of an alleged internet fraudster (Yahoo Yahoo) who barked like a dog for several minutes before collapsing, and he never woke up again.

According to reports, he was a Yahoo boy who added voodoo to his practice to make fast cash, but met his Waterloo on Sunday.

The case of internet fraudsters dying mysteriously have become rampant in recent times, and this has caused a lot of Nigerians, pleading with the government to curb their activities.

This, however, has been confirmed to be a movie.

Watch the video below:

MAFIKINZOLO-theo kgosinkwe proposes to girlfriend

Congratulatory messages have been pouring in for the couple.

Mafikizolo’s Theo Kgosinkwe has announced his engagement to model girlfriend Vourné Williams. Taking to social media on Thursday, the 45-year-old musician wrote: “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and finds favour from the Lord,” along with pictures of the proposal.

Judging from the pictures he posted, the musician seems to have hired a fellow musician to serenade the couple on the night.

Williams also took to social media to share the great news.

“He proposed, and I said yes. I woke up with tears of joy!! My heart is full!! Thank you, God, for all my blessings… Thank you fiancé @theo_kgosinkwe for making my birthday so special. I appreciate you,” she said.

The first person to get a drink is the referee,says bafana bafana midfielder,Furman

Dean Furman “jokingly” chided the Algerian referee in Bafana Bafana’s 1-0 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) opening defeat against Ivory Coast on Monday for being the first person to have a drink during an injury stoppage when he did not allow a first-half water breaks.

For the second Group D game running the referee did not allow a first-half water break – though Algerian referee Mustapha Ghorbal did at least allow a second-half break – in a 4.30pm kickoff Group D fixture at Cairo’s Al Salam Stadium.

The previous day Morocco coach Hervé Renard slammed Rwandan referee Louis Kakizimana for not allowing any breaks in the Atlas Lions’ sluggish 1-0 win against Namibia.

Global players’ union FifPro have raised concerns about the 4.30pm games kicking off at near 40 degrees Celsius – Sunday’s started in 38 degrees C‚ and Monday’s in 37.

Furman said Ghorbal did not allow a first-half water break.

“No. I was surprised. Because the first time there was an injury the first person to take a drink was the referee.

“And I had a joke with him because he said‚ ‘No water break’‚” the Bafana midfielder‚ arguably the hardest-working player on the field in the temperature on Monday‚ said.

“But it’s up to the referee and he decided that.

“I don’t know if the temperature was too low for a water break. But you could see from the energy of the players the guys were desperate for a bit of water.”

Also noticeable was that Ivory Coast’s players seemed to feign injuries for water breaks‚ and when they did they had a ready supply from their bench.

Bafana did not have the same service from theirs.

Furman‚ though‚ played down the effect of the heat on Monday‚ saying conditions were not much worse than Rustenburg in a mid-South Africa summer.

“It’s hot. But I would say 75 percent of us play in South Africa where we play a summer league so we play in this kind of weather every week‚” he said.

“It does alter the tempo of the game. But it is what it is. We went to Dubai specifically to get used to this. Dubai was 10 degrees hotter than this.

“It’s similar to Rustenburg‚ Polokwane‚ Thohoyandou. It’s hot. We’ve got to deal with that.

“What we’ve experienced‚ because we’ve been training at 4.30pm‚ 5pm‚ is that by the time of the second half it does cool a lot.

“And that’s the end of our 4.30 games now. We’ve got a 10pm [against Namibia on Friday]‚ and a 6pm game now [against Morocco on Monday].

“So yeah‚ we’re disappointed‚ but the conditions will suit us better in the next game‚ if they had any effect today.”

Bafana meet Namibia at Al Salam Stadium at 10pm on Friday night.
