Tina Lawson, mother of international singer Beyoncé has stood up for her daughter after being called out recently for not lending her voice to the ongoing protest in the country.
She took to social media to share a lengthy note replying those who called out her daughter for not showing interest in the EndSARS protest happening in Nigeria.
It was earlier reported that Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage called out Beyonce in a video to also lend her voice in the protest to end police brutality in the country adding that her team reached out to Nigerian creatives for the Black Is King project which showcases the beauty of Africa.
Reacting to this, Beyonce’s mom was not pleased with Tiwa’s approach. She noted that Tiwa Savage was supposed to reach out to her daughter’s team instead of calling her out on social media adding that she is not Nigeria’s Political leader or spokesperson.
Read part of her post below:
“No matter what my daughter does, she is scrutinised and torn apart. She makes a record and uses all African artist, producers, writer. She is criticised because she didn’t get artistes from every country in Africa. There are 52 countries!
.. She made art!! She is an artist! That is what artist do. She is not your political leader or your whipping board. I have had enough of the hating and I’m personally tired of the attacks..
.. I pray every day for Nigeria and all countries that are being abused and murdered for the colour of our skin!!! I would do anything to help but stop with the abuse and stop trying to make her your spokesperson and shaming people for doing things their own way
