Burna Boy’s show in South Africa has been reportedly canceled

According to reports, the organizers had to cancel the show because of the outrage it had generated probably due to Burna Boy’s famous tweets when the xenophobic attacks occurred. The safety of the artistes scheduled to perform at the event are not guaranteed which made Burna Boy’s management pull him out of the show.

“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,” the statement reads.
