Socialite Babalwa Mneno has defended the Nigerian artist Burna Boy’s comments about SA, claiming that “South Africans are xenophobic”.

Burna Boy sparked massive debate when, in a series of tweets in September, he urged black outsiders living in SA to defend and protect themselves against xenophobic attacks.  In a current deleted tweet, he also advised rapper AKA to reinforce his security, before giving him the middle finger.

He vowed to never go to SA again until the government“wakes the f*ck up and really performs a miracle”. However, after a month, he was announced as a part of the Africans Unite line-up to “unify all Africans and speak out against femicide”.

The concert is set to occur end of the week amid calls for it to be boycotted.

Former department of home affairs spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete said something regarding the discussion social media, yet got a hot clap-back from Babalwa when he encouraged Burna Boy to “apologize and keep it moving”.

Barbz didn’t spare a moment to call South Africans xenophobic, before apparently revising herself by including that  “majority of South Africans are xenophobic”.

“Majority of South Africans hate and despise nationals from other African states! It’s a fact! You and the rest are in denial, boet! Burna saw vids like everyone else and spoke out for his people”.

When a fan suggested that Burna Boy is a public figure and should be more responsible about what he shares, Barbz questioned if Burna Boy was “speaking on unverified information”.

She then steered the conversation to white people apologising for taking the land.

She said she “mostly” retweets and condemns before verifying if the information is true.

In an earlier tweet, the socialite had stressed that a united Africa was a threat to the whole world.

“A united Africa will be a serious threat to the whole world! This is why they forbid us to unite! These little fights about this Zambian, the Angolan, the Nigerian is what they want to see! Wake up people!” she wrote.
