He had vowed never to set foot in South Africa after the recent xenophobic attacks in the country but now, Nigerian singer Burna Boy has had a change of heart.

“I have not set foot in SA (South Africa) since 2017. And I will not ever go to South Africa again for any reason until the South African government wakes the f**k up and really performs a miracle, because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this,” he wrote on Twitter after scores of Nigerians were forced to return home.

Now, the singer will be headlining a concert in Cape Town next weekend christened ‘Africa Unite’. He says he will donate part of the proceeds from the concert to victims of the attacks.

“The first of many! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of xenophobic attacks by me! I really hope we can all keep contributing in our own way to make the world a better and safer place for each other. #Africansunite, it’s bigger than all of us,” he tweeted.
