South African rapper AKA has waded into the news of Nigerian music superstar Burna Boy losing the Grammy Awards to Angelique Kidjo of Benin.
Many celebrities across the African continent reacted to the news and AKA has finally joined the bandwagon.
For most netizens, they thought Burna Boy’s loss at the Grammy presented the perfect opportunity to mock him but he did the contrary.
AKA emphatically cleared the air on his love for the ‘African Giant’ stating that he never hated Burna Boy.
He is of the conviction that a nomination is an achievement.
He took to Twitter to hail him describing him as a champion.
“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”.
