Tina Lawson, mother of international act Beyoncé has hopped on her daughter’s defense, over slams of her inadequate involvement in the End SARS global protest.
In a recent viral video, Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage called out Beyoncé for not adding her voice to help solve the current issue of Police brutality in the Nigeria, noting that she collaborated with most of their creatives on her Black is King Album, which made waves everywhere.
Sharing her opinion on Tiwa’s rants, Beyoncé’s mother rebuked her for blustering the issue on social media, when she could’ve reached Beyoncé’s team in the background and shared her concerns.
She further stated that, herself and her daughter are very much involved in finding ways to help Nigeria and thus, people shouldn’t be quick to criticize the things they don’t know.
“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.”
