Tiwa Savage Reacts After Fans Dragged Her For Showing Solidarity To #BlackLivesMatter

Tiwa Savage has a classic respond for all those who think her showing solidarity to #BlackLivesMatter campaign is uncalled for.....
Yesterday, some followers of the Pop diva dragged her mercilessly on Instagram, after she joined the trending social media protest against the senseless killings of black men in the US, with the latest case being Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
The Eminado Crooner had posted an image with the words, “I can’t keep calm, I have a black son” and some disgruntled fans came hard on her, accusing her of joining the bandwagon by showing solidarity to black America and ignoring the issues in Nigeria.

See screenshots below:
Tiwa has however fired back at them. She shared a photo collage of herself and Michelle Obama (see below) during the #BringBackOurGirls campaign and said we as Nigerians should not be quick to forget the supports we recieved from the outside world during the tragic disappearance of over 200 school girls in Chibok community. 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 🙏🏽
