Black Lives Matters: Tiwa Savage Refused to Justify Her Support, Neither Should You

Nigerians always forget that people are entitlesd to their own opinions…

Mavin records queen, Tiwatope Savage has replied critics who responded harshly to her post and support for the ”Black Lives Matter” campaign which was borne out of the recent killings of two Black Americans in as many days last week.

The songstress Instagram page became lit with numerous mean comments from those who felt she was being hypocritical by supporting an American cause and neglecting the issues in Nigeria after she shared a post saying she can’t keep quiet because she has a black.

Due to the severe backlash, she shared the photos below with another caption:

”Let us not let the devil distract us by letting us fight amongst ourselves and lose focus on the many tragedies happening around the whole. Yes you as an individual might not be able to fight for every cause but even the little you do will help. I don’t need to justify my support for #blacklivesmatter and it’s sad that some people should even question my support because I’m sure these same people were happy when the rest of the world supported us with our #bringbackourgirls movement, but you don’t want us to show support because it is not right on our doorstep. This is exactly what the enemy wants and he “the devil” is a liar. We will keep supporting each other and not get distracted and just to clarify what happens at home means so much to me as a Nigerian. I didn’t just hashtag I joined several walks in protest, used my voice as an artist and wrote “olorun mi” as a tribute to lives lost on the Dana crash and will continue to do many more as it is my duty as a Nigerian, a citizen of this world and a child of the Most High”
