Afrobeats Superstar Tiwa Savage was billed to perform in this year’s Dstv Delicious Festival in Johannesburg, 21st September, but due to the unfortunate incident happening in South Africa where the natives are brutally attacking Nigerians, the songstress has decided to take herself out of the event.
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.

Meanwhile, the South Africans who see nothing wrong with what is happening in their country have hit back heavily saying her appearance won’t change anything in their country.
Below are reactions of some South Africans
I also find it very weird that you have never spoken against the crimes some of your fellow brothers are commiting in countries they’re at.
You’ve said NOTHING. Isn’t that weird also for you?
Why not boycott ALL kinds of crimes?
Or you love Nigerian crimes?
