- The Africa Unite concert promoters have shown disapproval of the hints at violence between AKA and Burna Boy
- The two rappers used to be tight but could be heading for a confrontation after a misunderstanding
- The promoters say the aim of the concert is to unite Africans and the violence doesn't sit well with them
Phambili Media, the promoters of the Africa Unite concert, have spoken up against the recent threat of violence between Mzansi's AKA and Nigeria's Burna Boy.
Burna Boy will be performing at the concerts in Cape Town and Johannesburg during November.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that AKA is curious to find out whether Burna Boy will follow through on his threat issued after a misunderstanding over a football tweet taken out of context earlier this year.
The Nigerian muso warned AKA that he better have proper security the next time they meet.
Phambli Media have distanced itself from these threats, as reported on by ZAlebs.
The concert is aimed at uniting Africans and rebuilding trust between the countries of Africa.
The Ministry of Sports, Arts & Culture (headed by Nathi Mthethwa), Channel O and Play Network Africa had come together to put President Cyril Ramaphosa’s plan into action. He had promised that more work would be done to alleviate hatred for foreign nationals in South Africa - thus the concert was brought to life.
"As we have our leaders working towards uniting Africa, it is important that we see each other as brothers of the same soil and come together and unite Africa. We must recognise and accept our differences as a continent and people of diverse cultures and love one another regardless."
AKA has expressed his willingness to let the whole thing go, but only if Burna Boy apologises.
The concert will also feature local artist Kwesta and Nigerian singer Jidenna. Minnie Dlamini will play host.
