Burna Boy, AKA Feud
Burna Boy and AKA’s feud also harkens back to a tumultuous social media clash in 2019 between Burna Boy and AKA. Despite having collaborated on three songs, their relationship soured due to a dispute over xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
At the height of the disagreement, Burna Boy declared that he would not set foot in South Africa again until the government took action. The tensions escalated further when he referred to AKA in derogatory terms and issued threats of violence if they ever crossed paths. In retaliation, AKA responded in his verse on Costa Titch’s “Nkalakatha Remix,” where he rapped: “Cancel my people, cancel your visa.”
