South African opposition politician, Julius S. Malema, has assured Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, of his safety during his performance at the African Unite Concert scheduled to hold on November 24 in the country; following so much threat coming from every angle.
Recall that the campaign to stop Burna Boy from performing is spearheaded by South African rapper, AKA who is demanding an apology from the Nigerian singer over a statement he made back in September during the xenophobic attacks in South Africa. Read here
Julius S. Malema who lashed out at those leading the campaign on Twitter, stated that he looks forward to receiving and getting entertained by Burna Boy.
“Looking forward to receiving and being entertained by my brother @burnaboy here at his home called South Africa. There’s no mascot that can stop him from performing, he’s one of our own and we will protect him. We must resolutely oppose regionalism led by political illiterates.”
To further affirm his statement, Mr. Malema went ahead to fire a direct message to rapper, AKA and his team of followers that:
“I won’t be intimidated or blackmailed by bed wetting boys, welcome home @burnaboy. South Africa is a home for all Africans, kill me for defending an African brother, bloody Cowards.”
