Burna Boy won the award for Best International Act at the BET Awards in June.

And he picked up an EMA award for Best African Act this past weekend. He also became the first afro-beats artist to sell out Wembley Arena in London, performing the night of his EMA win.

Now, the emerging superstar is bringing it back to Africa and headlining the Africans Unite concert alongside South African rapper, Kwesta.

This concert is being organised by the South African Tourism Department as a way to bring Africans back together following the spate of xenophobic attacks that have been occurring in the country.

It will he be held in Cape Town on 23 November and hosted by none other than fave media darling, Minnie Dlamini Jones.

Burna Boy used to live in South Africa and said he's "determined to lead the conversations towards reconciliation”.

During the heat of the xenophobic unrest, Burna Boy threatened to beat up rapper AKA.

Briefly.co.za reported that AKA sarcastically tweeted, two weeks ago, that he would love to see it happen.

Only time will tell whether these two former friends will eventually sort out their differences.
