Other celebs wey shuk mouth for di matter na Tiwa Savage as she cancel her show for South Africa via her tweet.
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.

See di tweet of other celebrities;
This a very difficult time for everyone but violence is never the answer. Attacking people or vandalizing businesses in Nigeria will not solve the problem, but will rather make things worse. We are hurting our own selves! Please 🙏🏽
