This happened a day ago after she shared a photo on her instagram account which read "I have a Black Son, I Can't Keep Calm".......Boyyyy many Nigerians were not here for it. I think most of them lacked understanding and didn't get where she was coming from. See pictures after cut:
|The instagram post that started it all|
Celebrities really endure a lot from fans....fans forget they bleed too..I actually see nothing wrong in what she said. She's fighting a good cause; other people showed support and were not bashed like this...again maybe they clearly didn't understand this post.
Anyways, Tiwa didn't keep mute. NO! She took to her account this morning and clapped back; educating those that criticized her. Take a look
iwasavage: "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"
Good one Tiwa! We stand with You!!
