Rapper, AKA Speaks On His Relationship With Burna Boy
AKA had a sitdown with media personality, Adesope Olajide on his YouTube show, Afrobeats Podcast where they discussed various aspects of his career from his stellar performance at live shows to Africa’s greatness.
They also discussed xenophobia in Africa, his 2019 fight with Burna Boy, and he rapper in giving out a possible solution for this continental problem said,
“the only way we can understand each other is through music and collaboration.”
On the show which aired on the 22nd of February, Adesope had then made mention of the rift that had eventually taken place in AKA and Burna Boy’s relationship during the heat of the South African against Nigerian xenophobia crisis.
He’d also asked AKA for a possible solution to bring them back to collaborating. AKA had answered saying that he thinks the need to collaborate across countries, is bigger than he and Burna Boy and quoted other top transnational collaborators such as Focalistic and the huge Amapiano movement.
On a personal level, I haven’t spoken to him in a while, I got mad love for him, I respect his art, I respect him as a person.
You know brothers can fight, in this instance it happened under the magnifying glass of the public. I don’t have any bad feelings towards nobody for none of that stuff that went down.”
