Popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, has taken extra steps to get the End SARS protest noticed on a global scale using her social media platform.
Savage shared a video via her Instagram page stating some of the situations Nigerians were facing in the country and how they were not fighting for basic amenities but for their lives.
She then went ahead to call on international music stars, particularly top American singer, Beyonce.
Tiwa reminded Beyonce of how she and her team reached out to a lot of Nigerians for her “Black Is King” project. She then urged her team to also use their platform for the End SARS protest because the country that birthed the Afrobeat genre which they celebrated was having a tough time.
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.
I personally was so proud to be part of the project. I know people are going to hate me, I know I’m going to get backlash from this, there’s even a possibility that I could get blacklisted for this”
