    The people looting and “butchering” Nigerians wouldn’t be able to afford a ticket to that concert, the organizers of the concert are still going to make money regardless of her absence. Black people will not move forward I think Nigerian artists would have made a better statement if they took a stand together at the concert and showed solidarity with the rest of Africa. How about maybe reading real news instead of fake news, 3 out of the 5 people killed during these attacks were South Africans.

    For starters, when people in South Africa are killing her countrymen, there is a big security question for her own personal safety.

    Secondly this action is a statement in itself, let South Africans come together and make a stand against people that infringe on the inalienable rights of human beings. They don’t need all Nigerian Artists in one place to do that.

    Black people will move forward only when Black people recognize and understand the inalienable rights of human beings.

    Nothing in the world is more important than the inalienable rights of human beings – which is why Tiwa’s action is critically important.
