The show will be hosted by Idris Elba and will be uniting a line up of the biggest African music stars like Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Burna Boy, and AKA.
It can be recalled that In July 2019, AKA shared some tweets about the South African football team losing to the Super Eagles at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Unfortunately, when the xenophobic attacks against Nigerians living in South Africa came to light in September 2019, those tweets were misinterpreted as being xenophobic.
Things were pretty heated up in that period.
Burna Boy came on Twitter to condemn the xenophobic acts and then threatened not to visit South Africa anymore.
‘I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans and because of that….. 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 fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this,” he said.
Things escalated real quick and ended with him sharing some angry tweets at AKA, dissing him.
AKA and Burna Boy went back and forth at each other, and AKA even tweeted that Burna Boy should apologise to South Africans before visiting Pretoria for a performance in November 2019.
However, the duo used to be cool before all of this drama happened.
Will AKA and Burna Boy leave the past behind and unite to give us an electrifying performance?
