Tiwa Savage React To The Call Out By Fans For Supporting BLM Movement

Just yesterday, Tiwa Savage posted on instagram trying to show support to Black Americans living in the US by supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement. This made fans call her all sort of names as they generally called her hypocritical for not voicing out against her country's problems.

She has duly reacted and defended her action by posting pictures of Nigerian campaigns she has supported and wrote an epistle, which really made sense if i must opine.
She wrote thus:

In case you can't read that well, the lyrics are written below:

"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 🙏🏽"

The irony is, with her reaction, criticisms became way less than when she was supporting. Humans!!!!!!!
