Nigerians have called out music star, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter for her silence over the ongoing #EndSARS protest.
This comes after other international celebrities including, Viola Davis, Drake, Kanye West, and Bishop T.D Jakes showed their solidarity and support of the protest via their social media platforms. Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey is the latest celebrity to join.
On Friday, Nigerians pounced on the multi-award winner. Beyonce is accused of shunning a country where she has a huge fan base, Daily Post said.
Tweets about Beyonce reached 202,000 at 2:26 pm.
“If Beyonce haven’t said anything about #EndSARS by yesterday, it means she doesn’t CARE!”, @_harrisonJNR.
“Beyonce came to Africa, featured African Artists to revive her dead career, some clowns called her Mama Africa. Where is y’ll Mama Africa now? #EndSARS #EndSWAT”, @Allezamani wrote.
“Where are those people that wanted to give Beyonce mama Africa because she packed Nigerian/African artiste on her album? It’s been over one week your mama Africa hasn’t said a thing about #EndSARS”, @o_kanyy said.
The protests are continuing nationwide with more citizens joining by the day.
