Many on social media are equally excited about the news and have expressed as much with their comments. See some reactions to Burna's nomination below:
Just recently, Briefly.co.za reported that Burna Boy would no longer be attending the Africans Unite concert that was set to be held in South Africa due to alleged anger against him.
Some months back, people from other African countries based in South Africa were attacked by South Africans. Due to the xenophobic attacks, Burna Boy had vowed never to set foot in the country unless their government did something about it.
Amidst the anger and hate, the singer had been involved in a war of words with South African rapper AKA which led to anger towards him from some citizens of the country.
