Burna Boy was caught under fire after he expressed his comments about the Xenophobic attacks that happened earlier in September.
The controversial Nigerian artist Burna Boy was set to take to the stage in SA on the 23rd of November, organisers have announced the artist has been withdrawn and concerts in Cape Town and Tshwane cancelled.
According to TshisaLive, there was a media statement on Wednesday, organisers said that after extensive engagement with Burna Boy’s management team, they had decided to withdraw the Nigerian artist from the concert and cancel its shows.
“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.”
