Nigerian elite Afro-beats artiste, Burna Boy, is all set for his South African concert and has said he will donate parts of the proceeds from the concert to victims of the xenophobic attack.
This is coming two months after the artiste said he won’t be performing in South Africa, due to recent spate of xenophobic violence in the country.
On his verified Twitter handle, he wrote “The first of many! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of Xenophobic attacks by me! I really hope we can all keep contributing in our own way to make the world a better and safer place for each other. #Africansunite, it’s bigger than all of us”.
Burna Boy, who is the headline act at ‘Africa Unite’ concert is expected to perform alongside Kwesta, Jidenna, and Busiswa in the last week of November, 2019.
He – alongside other celebrities in September – spoke out against attacks on Nigerians and other Africans in South Africa.
“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 up and really performs a miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this,” he wrote on Twitter.
