Burna Boy Speaks On Unrest In South Africa

Nigerian artist, Burna Boy, has spoken out about the unrest in South Africa, saying that he won’t be returning. In a series of tweets, he wrote, “Ok. I have been away from social media personally until today. Ordinarily at a time like this, I should come here and say something to try and calm the situation because my Dream has always been to Unite AFRICA and make us [realize] that Together we will Literally rule the world... But Today After watching the Killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. F**K ALL THAT!  I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans and because of that…” 

He continued, “I have not set foot in SA since 2017. And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the f**k up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this. This goes against everything I stand 4, but at what point do we take action? I understand that years of Oppression has confused South Africans to the point where they see the pple who came to their [defense] during their Oppression as their Enemies and then worship their oppressors.” 

Burna Boy added, “Lemme also say that there are some South Africans who are Amazing, Progressive AFRICAN people and I will forever Love them like I Love myself. But they are not many at all.”
