Tiwa Savage has canceled her upcoming show in Johannesburg, South Africa due to the ongoing Xenophobic crisis in the country against Nigerians and other African nations.
The ‘One’ singer who is meant to perform in South Africa on the 21st of September made her stance clear earlier today, 4th of September via Twitter as she said she will not be performing at the upcoming Delicious Festival hosted by South African company, DSTV;
I refuse to watch the barbaric butchering of my people in SA. This is SICK. For this reason I will NOT be performing at the upcoming DSTV delicious Festival in Johannesburg on the 21st of September. My prayers are with all the victims and families affected by this.
This tweet raised reactions from South Africans on her mention who defensively told Tiwa Savage that she’s in support of drugs distribution in South Africa, but the Singer refuted such accusations stating they’re better ways to resolve an issue than resorting to the killings of Africans despite the country.
