Tiwa Savage showed support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement proceeding the unwarranted murder of Anton Sterling and Philando Castile who were shot by white police officers and her solidarity was met with scorn.

The shooting which occurred in the United States had her spiteful fans maliciously commenting that the singer should mind her business by focusing on issues in her own country.

Tiwa didn’t take it lying down as she went savage on them or rather their misinformed opinion.

The mother-of-one schooled opposing commenters on what the movement stood for and how it affects every black person regardless what part of the continent you lived.

Tiwa went savage on her spiteful fans

Tiwa Savage began with the an Instagram photo which read, “I can’t keep calm I have a black son”, while adding a heartbreak emoji.

One of the comments she got read, “I totally totally support African Americans, we are all from the Same ancestors even tho we live in different continents… my issue is why is she a selective activists? ‘Bring back our Girls’ and ‘Black lives matter’ both had/have international recognitions.! If u want to truly speak up on injustice, why don’t she start from her own soil… Nigeria! We have had several political & religious unrest since after the bring back our girls & I didn’t see the post on Tiwa’s page.”

While another fan wrote, “Stay in nigeria…. American police no dey here.”

💔 🙏🏽

Well, Tiwa Savage replied back and gave her misinformed fans a lesson on the true concept of #BlackLivesMatter. She wrote: 

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.

Whether in Nigeria or in the UK or in the United States, there is a collective responsibility for every black person to protect each other… and everyone else in-between.
