Johannesburg - Someone call Home Affairs and organise Burna Boy an id, the guy is totes an adopted South African!

We're not sure when Burna Boy last returned home to Nigeria, but he seems to spend a heck of a lot of time over here.

He's previously denied that South Africa made him (more on that here), but it seems Mzansi can't get enough of the Naija rapper... and he can't help but love us right back.  

Only hours after being crowned African Artist Of The Year at this year's Metro FM Music Awards, Burna Boy took to Instagram to thank Mzansi for its support.

Thank you SA. Blessings. #1715 #martellVIC

A few days later, Burna Boy returned to the platform, after a trip to Newlands East in Durban. In a touching post, he opened up about his love for the country and its people, calling it more of a home than his actual home.

"It's always the greatest blessing when the hood shows you genuine love. Not wanting a dime from me. Just real #LOVE . I felt more at home than even my own home. The kids, their parents, the G's, the OG's Love from everyone. And you wonder why I love South Africa so much! Thank you so much Newlands East Durban! I will never forget y'all," he wrote in the post.
