In September 2019, social media was rent with reports of xenophobic attacks against foreigners, particularly Nigerians, in South Africa.

Well, South African artistes under the umbrella of Tshwane Collective, have heavily kicked against Burna performing in their country after his remarks on the xenophobic attacks.

The group claims Burna incited violence and hatred with his comments against South Africa. In the now deleted series of tweets, the Ye star had also threatened to deal with SA rapper, AKA, as he warned him to beef up his security.

Excerpts from the open letter the group sent to the minister of arts and culture reads: “Whoever may have deemed that the country needs a PR exercise of this nature would have done so largely as a result of the callous, misleading and unwarranted incitement by this very artist. Not only did he spread falsehoods through his extensive platform, he literally incited violence and hate."
