Tiwa Savage’s Video Of Calling Out Beyoncé To Lend Her Voice To #ENDSARS is Such A Brave Move!
Tiwa Savage made an Instagram live video on the 15th of October 2020 expressing her heartfelt concerns on the daily issues that an average Nigerian face. She expressed how the faulty system in Nigeria works against Nigerians despite their industrious qualities and survival spirit.
During the video, The “Koroba” crooner called out the ‘Black is King’ star Beyonce, and her team to lend their voice to the ongoing protest against SARS and police brutality in Nigeria. According to Tiwa Savage, the young Nigerians who contributed to the ‘Black is King’ project are going through a tough time in the history of their nation. These Nigerians and they are also the creators of the Afrobeats genre that Beyonce and her team used ‘Black is King’ to promote and the singer is asking, that the way they were reached out for such a great project, Beyonce should also use her platform to create awareness to the plight of the Nigerian people.
Tiwa Savage expressed her awareness of the backlash her actions for calling Beyonce might cause her but the singer, at this point, is more interested in using her platform to raise the necessary awareness that such a movement requires rather than the personal damage it might do to her brand, which is really commendable.
She went further to call out music streaming apps such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and even Nike, asking that they lend their voice and help Nigerian youth win this fight against oppression and police brutality.
