Nigerian superstar Burna Boy was left disappointed after his show was cancelled. But before that, he had a few things to say on social media. So the day his concert which was originally scheduled for September 23 was announced to be postponed to December 16 the social media streets went wild.
While this news brought joy to many South African fans of AKA, one person who wasn’t pleased with Burna Boy’s response was Nadia Nakai. The South African rapper believes that Burna Boy is still shading her late boyfriend, AKA, even in his grave.
It all started when Burna Boy took to Instagram to address the postponement of his show. He wrote, ‘I was in South Africa last year and I had 100,000 of the most beautiful South Africans outside for me, so no dead agenda. I will see you again soon South Africa. I love you.’ This statement didn’t sit well with Nadia Nakai, who felt that Burna Boy was referring to AKA’s passing.
Nadia Nakai, in a now-deleted Instagram story, shared a snapshot of Burna Boy’s post and expressed her frustration by asking, ‘Am I being sensitive? What does he mean by dead agenda?’ This has sparked a heated debate among fans of both artists.
AKA, a prominent South African rapper, tragically passed away earlier this year, leaving behind a legacy that has deeply affected the music industry. Many fans and fellow artists mourned his untimely death and continue to honour his memory.
However, some fans believe that Burna Boy’s statement was taken out of context and that he was simply referring to the excitement and love he experienced during his previous visit to South Africa. While some argued that it was deliberate shade towards AKA or any other artist.
Regardless of the intention behind Burna Boy’s words, it is evident that Nadia Nakai is still grieving the loss of her boyfriend and feels protective of his legacy. The emotional response from Nakai highlights the deep connection and love she shared with AKA, and it is understandable that she would be sensitive to any perceived disrespect towards him.
