Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage Cancel Shows In South Africa Over Xenophobic Attacks

Nigerian musicians, Damini Ogulu, (Burna Boy) and Tiwa Savage have said they will not perform in South Africa over ongoing Xenophobic attacks in the country.

“…Today After watching the Killing of my people in South Africa the same way we have all watched it happen a few times in the past. FUCK ALL THAT! I personally have had my own xenophobic experiences at the hands of South Africans and because of that…

“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 the fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this, ” said Burna Boy.

On the other hand, Tiwa Savage said “I refuse to watch the barbaric butchering of my people in SA. This is SICK. For this reason, I will NOT be performing at the upcoming DSTV delicious Festival in Johannesburg on the 21st of September. My prayers are with all the victims and families affected by this.”

DStv Delicious is an International Food and Music Festival – South Africa’s premier lifestyle event. 

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday called on all South Africans to stop the violence and looting targeted at foreigners.

“There can be no justification for any South African to attack people from other countries,” he said.
