Tiwa Savage calls out Beyoncé over her silence on #EndSars protest
Nigerian female singer, Tiwa Savage has called out American singer and songwriter, Beyoncé over her silence on the #EndSars protest on-going in Nigeria.
The singer who collaborated with Beyonce on the Black Is King project posted a video on her Instagram account and voiced out her disappointment at Beyonce and her team for not making any statements amid the protests in Nigeria.
Following in the steps of the aforementioned artists, plus artists like Drake, Lil Baby, Popcaan & Stefflon Don, Savage took to her social media, using her platform for good.
While noting how grateful she was to have worked alongside Bey on the ‘Lion King‘ projects ‘The Gift‘ and ‘Black Is King,’ Savage proceeds to call out Bey and her team for uplifting the culture, but failing to speak out on the protests abroad.
She said; I want to use my platform to call Beyonce and the whole team that reached out to a lot of Nigerians; Nigerian artistes, producers, video directors, dancers, creatives. I’m calling on Beyonce and her team the same way they used their platform to elevate and show the world that Black Is King and how beautiful Afrobeat and Africa and our culture is. Because the same country that birth this genre is on fire right now. Where these creative are from is on fire. So I’m calling on Beyoncé and the whole team and telling them that you cannot ignore this, that you cannot be quiet. Because we all celebrated the Black Is King.
