Julius Malema, a Member of Parliament and leader of Economic Freedom Fighters (a South African Political Party) has lashed out at those campaigning to stop Burna Boy from visiting and performing in South Africa.
Naijanewsgist reported that the campaign to stop Burna Boy from performing is spearheaded by South African rapper, AKA who is demanding an apology from the Nigerian singer over a statement he made a few months ago during the xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Julius Malema who lashed out at those leading the campaign on Twitter, stated that he looks forward to receiving and getting entertained by Burna Boy. He guaranteed the Nigerian singer of his safety and further added that Africans must resolutely oppose regionalism led by political illiterates.
Looking forward to receiving and being entertained by my brother @burnaboy here at his home called South Africa. There's no mascot that can stop him from performing, he's one of our own and we will protect him. We must resolutely oppose regionalism led by political illiterates.

Following the backlash that ensued after his tweet, Julius Malema insisted that he won’t be intimidated by bed-wetting boys because South Africa is home for all.
I won't be intimidated or blackmailed by bed wetting boys, welcome home @burnaboy. South Africa is a home for all Africans, kill me for defending an African brother, bloody Cowards.
