Beyonce’s Mother Tina Knowles Replies Tiwa Savage Over #EndSARS Protests
The #EndSARS protest has gained the attention of the world. So many high profile international celebrities and public figures support the movement and are calling for an end to police brutality in Nigeria.
If you recall, Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, in an Instagram Live session, called on Beyonce to lend her voice to the ongoing #EndSARS protests in the country. However, the singer’s mother, Tina Knowles, in a now edited post expressed her unhappiness with the Nigerian singer for not reaching out to her daughter privately but chose to call out the “Halo” hitmaker publicly.
Tina Knowles expressed her displeasure at insinuations that Beyonce profited off Africans. She stated clearly that Beyonce “made art”and is “an artist” before going on to add “She is not your political leader and not your whipping board.”
Anyways, Nero’s couldn’t get a shot of the post right away. So we shared the edited version of her post where she stated her support for the EndSARS movement by calling on people to donate to the protesters.
