A recent performance of Burna Boy was canceled by his management team after South Africans rage against the artist and Julius Malema.
This started with Malema’s friend, Burna Boy Tweeting the following:
And he went on attacking South African artist AKA.
Malema said the following on Twitter that upset South Africans.
I won’t be intimidated or blackmailed by bed wetting boys, welcome home @burnaboy. South Africa is a home for all Africans, kill me for defending an African brother, bloody Cowards.
He also continued to say that he cannot wait to be entertained by Burna Boy and that he will be kept safe in South Africa. South Africans then started a movement #BurnaBoyCanVoetsek

Julius Malema once said Duduzane Zuma, is not a proper South African citizen, but the Nigerian guy insulting and threatening South African citizens is his brother.— Tizza (@smarties404) November 17, 2019

This powerful unity of South Africans is interesting. Maybe South Africans are trying to teach us new methods, that we don't need politicians to express our views. After this lets get the real enemy and the land! #BurnaBoyCanVoetsek— S E P H I R I❄️ (@sephiritsikeli) November 16, 2019
Burna Boy’s management said:
“The decision to cancel the Africans Unite Concert comes after the call from the Tshwane Entertainment Collective to boycott the Africans Unite concert in Tshwane. With the increasing threats of violence from other unfortunate segments of the public and without any government intervention, Phambili Media and Play Network Africa were prompted to take the threats and warnings seriously, as the safety of all artists and attendees could not be guaranteed.
“We then decided to cancel the concert. The safety of all attendees, artists and crew comes first.”
After the announcement from Burna Boy’s management that he will not perform. South Africans started celebrating it as a victory and mentioned that they are stronger together.
