While letting out her frustrations with the killings of protesters during the ongoing EndSARS protest, Tiwa Savage took to social media to ask the international community, especially international stars (particularly Beyonce) to ring a loud bell about the situation so the reluctant Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari will act immediately.
She wrote in a lengthy message on social media saying; “I was involved, recently, in a project that I was so proud of, like as an artiste I was so so proud to be called to be among the few people that was [sic] involved in this project. It’s called ‘Black Is King: The Gift album. But I want to use my platform right now to call Beyonce and the whole team that reached out to a lot of Nigerians; Nigerian artistes, Nigerian producers, Nigerian video directors, dancers, creatives.
I’m calling on Beyonce and her team, the same way they used their platform… to elevate and to show the world that Black is King and how beautiful Afrobeat and Africa our culture is. I want them to please use their voice and their platform right because the same country that birth this genre (Afrobeat) is on fire right now. You cannot ignore this,” Savage added after days of protests in Nigeria without a word from Beyonce.”
Tina, on the hand expressed a different perspect to the situation by saying;
For all of you couch internet activist, don’t flatter yourselves She never does anything she does not want to do!!!! Your noise is like that of a small gnat irritating yes! but weak not powerful! God Bless you though. Thanks for quietly researching, identifying vetting, and supporting organizations on the ground!! Thanks for continuing the work to really have a plan to make a difference not just talking.”
