After complaints, insults and even threats, Burna Boy is out - he has cancelled all his gigs in Mzansi and the Africans Unite Concert is no longer happening.

It has been a long time coming because South Africans were not happy with the Nigerian musician or his attitude towards xenophobia and local rapper, AKA.

Things escalated to a point where the Tshwane Entertainment Collective got involved and planned to boycott the concert unless Burna Boy apologised for his behaviour and comments.

It seems peeps got their wish - the concert was cancelled and the news spread like wildfire on social media.

For the most part, people were relieved and happy that the event would not take place as they felt strongly about Burna Boy, but noticed that some Twitter users felt the cancellation did not reflect well on the country.

Here's a handful of the comments floating around after the news broke.

Meanwhile, Sho Madjozi has expressed her approval at the cancellation, saying the concert was nothing more than a ploy to make money.

She feels the aim was never to help unite Africans, but just to make some cash off a serious situation.
