South Africans are getting dragged on social media after they sensationally claimed that South African rapper AKA was responsible for turning Burna Boy into a huge success.

The South Africans claimed that AKA contributed massively to Burna Boy’s success and made him into a “monster” when he featured him on his 2014 hit song “All Eyes on Me.” The song also featured Da L.E.S and JR.

However, this claim was met with widespread incredulity and ridicule on social media.

Some social media users mocked the South Africans for trying to raise the profile of one of their own by downplaying Burna Boy’s prodigious talent.

They argued that Burna Boy was already big before he met AKA and that he has made massive trends worldwide, which AKA is yet to make. Some also questioned why AKA has not achieved the same global fame if he was indeed responsible for Burna Boy’s fame and success.

These are AKA biggest songs, and two of them have Burna boy. Burna boy “on the low” song has more stream’s than all of them together, nigga 😄😄🤣 Burna boy put AKA to the world. AKA is no where near Rema over here. Tell him to beg Burna so he can be relevant for once in his life.

AKA only introduced South Africans to Burna. years on Burna is miles ahead of him and has performed on stages AKA could only dream of.

Trying to give AKA credit for Burna Boy is a disgusting leave dick riding

Look man. I would not say CREATED, but he played a very big role in his career when Nigeria refused him.. Burna came to SA and really ran with the winners making some great ground breaking records and kept it moving after AKA..

AKA was definitely bigger than him even in Nigeria
