Singer-songwriter Tiwa Savage recently took to social media to talk about the “End SARS” protests that were occurring in her native Nigeria. When I talk about the strength and beauty of Nigeria, I also talk about the country needing support now more than ever.
One person she invited to use his voice and platform to talk about the current thing is Beyoncé. Most recently, she worked with Beyoncé on her movie “Black is King,” which is visually inspired from Beyoncé’s 2019 album, “Lion King: The Gift”.
Tiwa He saidI participated, recently, in a project I was very proud of, as an artist I was very proud to be invited to be one of the few people who participated in this project. It’s called Black Is King: The Gift. But I want to use my platform now to contact Beyoncé and the whole team that “Connect with a lot of Nigerians. Nigerian artists, Nigerian producers, Nigerian video directors, dancers, creative people.”
“I invite Beyoncé and her team, in the same way they used their platform … to rise and show the world that lions are king and how beautiful Afrobeat and Africa are our culture. I want them to use their voices and platform properly because the same country in which this species was born is on fire now.”
