Nigerians have called out American singer, Beyonce for failing to lend a voice to the ongoing protests in the country.
Since the emergence of the #EndSARS protests in Nigeria, international celebrities from all over the world ranging from artistes, actors, footballers have all supported the movement. From Kanye West, Twitter CEO, Jack, Trey Songz, Lil Baby, Diddy, Wale, the number of international celebrities speaking up keeps increasing by the day.
However, Nigerians are yet to get a reaction from Beyonce and this is due to the fact that her recent visual album “Black Is King” was heavily influenced by Nigerians. Artistes like Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Tekno, Burna Boy, Mr Eazi,, and other Nigerian creatives were on the whole project and her failure to speak up has caused a stir amongst Nigerians. This is coming after Tiwa Savage via her social media page called on the singer to lend a voice to the protest in the counbry.

If Beyoncé makes any speech or types up any stuff on her notes about the movement at this point, it’s just eye service .
We are good without her “Mama Africa” input . Appropriator oshi

Where are those people that wanted to give Beyonce mama Africa because she packed Nigerian/African artiste on her album?
Its been over one week your mama Africa hasn't said a thing about #EndSARS.

.@TiwaSavage calling out Beyoncé and @tokstarr calling out @KimKardashian. You love to see it. But it too late. Anyone who hasn’t commented on #EndSARS at this stage doesn’t care or think Nigeria 🇳🇬 is important enough. It’s simple as ABC.

When you released Lion King, many Nigerians saw it a moment of unity for all black people. A true “Wakanda” moment.
Our people are being killed by police.
Take a moment @Beyonce.
Lend a voice for the millions of Nigerians who love you.
Help us #EndPoliceBrutality
