Popular South African rapper, AKA has taken to his twitter page to react to Nigerian Afrobeats singer Burna Boy loosing the Grammy award.
The 62nd Grammy Awards which held last night in Los Angeles, California, saw Burna Boy and his African Giant album nominated in the category for Best World Music Album.
The category was won by fellow African and legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo, with her album Ceila.
As soon as the news broke, trolls stormed AKA’s Twitter page to hear what he will say about the loss of Burna Boy.
Recall that Burna Boy and AKA went at each other over the xenophobic attacks inflicted on Nigerians by South Africans in their country.
With the Grammies over and Burna Boy going home, many expect AKA to express excitement.
Taking to twitter, AKA wrote;
“I never hated Burna Boy. All I did was stand up for my country. I think it’s time to move past this narrative. It’s tired. Like I said, even a nomination is a huge achievement”.

“What you should have done is focus on the positive instead of thinking about me and my country. In any case, Burna is still a champion. We still consider him a winner”.
