Big Brother Naija ”Pepper Dem” star, Mike Edwards, has advised against pleading with American music superstar, Beyonce to lend her voice to the ongoing #EndSARS protests going on across the country.
Earlier today, it was reported that Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage called on Beyonce to use her voice and amplify the demands of Nigerians with regards to bringing an end to police brutality in the nation.
In her words;
“I want to use my platform to call Beyonce and the whole team that reached out to a lot of Nigerians; Nigerian artistes, producers, video directors, dancers, creatives.
“I’m calling on Beyonce and her team the same way they used their platform to elevate and show the world that Black Is King and how beautiful Afrobeat and Africa and our culture is. Because the same country that birth this genre is on fire right now. Where these creative are from is on fire. So I’m calling on Beyoncé and the whole team and telling them that you cannot ignore this, that you cannot be quiet. Because we all celebrated the Black Is King.
I personally was so proud to be part of the project. I know people are going to hate me, I know I’m going to get backlash from this, there’s even a possibility that I could get blacklisted for this.”
However, hours after she made the appeal, and Beyonce was yet to respond, BBNaija ex-contestant, Mike Edwards took to his Twitter account to state that the U.S. singer is not God and as such the focus should be on #EndSARS protest.
He tweeted; “Beyoncé is not God we move #EndSARS”
Beyoncé is not God we move #EndSARS
