AKA comments on Burnaboy’s loss at the Grammy Awards

AKA and Burnaboy

South African rapper, AKA and Burna Boy have not been best of friends since Burnaboy’s comment on the Xenophobic attack on Nigerians.

Gistcandy earlier informed that Burna Boy lost in the Best World Music Album category to ninth-time nominee, Angelique Kidjo.

Kidjo’s triumph for ‘Celia’ outshine fellow nominees Altin Gün (Gece), Bokanté and Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley (What Heat), Burna Boy (African Giant) and Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet (Fanm D’Ayiti).


However, AKA has reacted stating that he still considers Burna Boy a winner and champion.

“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.”,

In another tweet  obviously in response to critics, the South African rapper stated he had never hated Burnaboy. He added that all that happened between them was just a fight for his country.

He further described Burna Boy’s nomination as a huge achievement.

“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.”
