South African artistes kick against Burna Boy’s propsed performance at Africans unite concert

By Aishat Salihu

South African musicians under the aegis of Tshwane Collective has sent a petition to the minister of arts and culture, kicking against the inclusion of Burna Boy in the ‘Africans Unite’ concert scheduled for 23 and 24 November.

The Africans Unite concerts, a response to recent xenophobia in the country, is organised by Play Network Africa, based in Nigeria, in partnership with Phambili Media.

The show appears to enjoy the support of South Africa’s department of arts and culture.

Among the star-studded guests are Burna Boy, Kwesa and Jidenna.

 

The first concert will hold at Hillcrest Quarry in Cape Town while the second at Sun Arena, Time Square in Pretoria.

However, according to reports, South Africa’s department of culture has distanced itself from the concert and said that it’s logo had been used “erroneously” on posters advertising the event.

“The Department of Sports, Arts and Culture wishes to dispel the untrue information currently being spread on social media, that it is funding the Africans Unite Concert featuring the artist known as Burna Boy. It is unfortunate that the department’s logo was erroneously used on the poster advertising the event,” spokesperson Asanda Magaqa told TshisaLIVE.

Also, Asanda said that the department had not allocated or granted funding for the event.

“The department wishes to reiterate that it has not allocated or granted any funding to the event in question and any reports to the contrary are entirely false”, he added.
