Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has canceled her upcoming DSTV festival performance following the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
The announcement by Tiwa Savage was shared on social media where she said she cannot watch the barbaric butchering of her people in South Africa.
She proceeds by saying the incident makes her sick and for those reasons she won’t be performing on 21st September.
“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.”
The sentiments by Tiwa second that of fellow Nigerian artiste Burna Boy who vowed not to step a foot in the country following the attacks.
He opens up about being a victim of the attack and since 2017 he has never set a foot in the country and never will he set foot again.
Burna Boy called on the government to take action something that he says will take a miracle for it to happen.
He further added that he is not encouraging violence but calls upon the victims to arm themselves as there is a way to protect themselves.
