African Giant makes his way back to Mzansi stage

The headlining act for this year’s Delicious International Food and Music Festival will be African Giant Burna Boy, who will fly to South Africa in September. The festival will be held at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Johannesburg on September 24 and 25.

As has been the case with most events, Mzansi’s Ultimate Food and Music Experience is back after a two-year break with a killer lineup.The annual two-day sold-out festival has drawn some of the biggest names in the global, African, and local culinary and music industries, including chefs Reuben Riffel, Siba Mtongana, and J Something, as well as Jamiroquai, Chaka Khan, Erykah Badu, Hugh Masekela, Black Coffee, and Louie Vega.

The “African Giant” threatened to refuse to enter South Africa altogether until our government woke up in 2019, in the wake of xenophobic atrocities there.

In a press statement issued, Nokuthula Monaheng, the festival’s media director, said: “We are delighted to bring back the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival now that we are through this crippling pandemic. The festival will be bigger and better than ever before, with amazing culinary and musical talent touching down in Mzansi over the Heritage Day weekend for the greatest festival in Africa.”

The festival will be held on September 24 and 25, which is Heritage Day weekend.

Burna Boy’s Twitter outburst in response to many xenophobic attacks in 2019 incited rage among South Africans.

He urged black immigrants living in South Africa to “defend and protect themselves” from South African attacks. In a threatening post that has since been deleted, he also advised the rapper AKA to “beef up security”.Burna Boy refused to apologize when AKA requested him to do so. He tweeted: “All we want is an apology. We know SA is not perfect, but we took you in as our own before you reached these levels. You say you are an African giant, prove it”.

Later that year, after promising to perform in South Africa for the Africans Unite concert against xenophobia at the Sun Arena, Burna Boy surprised the nation alongside fellow Nigerian superstar Jidenna and South African rapper Kwesta, Burna was scheduled to perform on stage. He shared in a tweet about the concert: “The first of many! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of xenophobic attacks on me”.However, due to public backlash and threats of violence, the concert was canceled.
