Burna Boy to Donate Proceeds From Concert to Xenophobia Victims

The popular singer has announced that part of the proceeds from the show he is scheduled to headline in South Africa, will go to victims of the last xenophobic attacks in the country. Burna Boy found himself embroiled in the social media reactions against the xenophobic attacks when he made a bold statement about never setting foot in South Africa again until its government acts against the attacks. South African artists have objected to the inclusion of Burna Boy in the show, questioned the exclusion of artists and event organizers from Tshwane, and complained of the lack of financial support for artists from the area.
