Beyonce’s Mother Tina Knowles Reacts To Tiwa Savage

Beyonce’s Mother Tina Knowles Replies Tiwa Savage Over #EndSARS Protests

The #EndSARS protest has gained the attention of the world. So many high profile international celebrities and public figures support the movement and are calling for an end to police brutality in Nigeria.

Tiwa Savage in an Instagram Live session, called on Beyonce to lend her voice to the ongoing #EndSARS protests in the country. However, the singer’s mother, Tina Knowles, was not happy with the Nigerian singer for not reaching out to her daughter privately but chose to call out the “Halo” hitmaker publicly.

Tina Knowles expressed her displeasure at insinuations that Beyonce profited off Africans. She stated clearly that Beyonce “made art” and is “an artist” before going on to add “She is not your political leader and not your whipping board.”

Read the full post below.

“Good Morning , I am deeply saddened by the events that happened last night in Lagos! When people lost their lives and were beaten and abused. I understand the injustices that have been going on in Nigeria, it sickens me. SARS came to my attention last week and immediately I posted about it! I had not heard of it before as I have not been following closely Instagram as much as I usually do due to some serious personal family challenges. As a result I have been mostly posting funny things to try to make people smile.

After researching on line I understood that SARS (a special task force supposedly to stop crime) were abusing their power and harassing young people. Very much like what we have been protesting for , here in America. Everyday we are disproportionately stopped, harassed jailed and sometimes killed ! These senseless killings of our black men and women! The brutal treatment of our people by law enforcement ! No knock warrants etc. Of course I guess much of the public does not think we have personal problems in our family . We are supposed to be super human and not have loss, or health issues or personal problems because our sole purpose is supposed to be of service and humility and take as much abuse from the haters as they choose to put on us. No matter what my daughter does she is scrutinized and torn apart! She Makes a record and uses all African artist, producers, writers. She is criticized because She didn’t get artist from every country in Africa there are 52 countries! Then she makes a film that by the way she doesn’t profit a penny off of, because she spent every penny in the budget on making something that celebrates our heritage!

What profiting off of you did she do? She made art!! She is an artist! That is what artist do. She is not your political leader and not your whipping board. They saw a 30 second trailer and critics and couch activist attacked! !!! yes I said it and I meant it! They came out and did their usual thing about her being a culture vulture and saying some of the most ugly and vile things about her that were totally not true and insults galore.

Someone that was on the last project who BTW is in constant contact with her team decided that instead of contacting her team and asking her to post to assist in spreading the word . I am appalled that They would get on social media and do it !! Why not ask the people you are dealing with all the time????? On her team!! I don’t understand that !!! I am sure at the time she was not thinking straight because of the trauma that the country was facing but come on!!!!!! I have had enough of the hating and am personally tired of the attacks. And it is disgusting how people sit behind a computer and talk crap all day and many of them do absolutely nothing else ! It is so easy to post ! Don’t get me wrong posting is very important that’s why I do it every day about social issues. It spreads the word and that is important But everybody has a right to activate in their own way. If we do us , and focus on what WE can do and not expect Beyonce to do exactly what she is told when you tell her to do it! Then we would get it done better.

When I made my post it was not about any group of people and certainly not the Nigerian People ! Only the attackers and haters that no matter what she does you feel entitled to bully someone and take credit for bullying her into making a by a statement !! By the way many people are just posting today because it has gone to the next level after last nights tragic events. Are you critics attacking them? Sorry if I offended anyone just trying to make a statement for change and asking for help ! I was not talking to you ! Those comments were for the rude attackers that rudely ,constantly come for us in a vile and abusive way ! Trying to bully and shame us into submission just like the oppressors. We not your whipping board . I am not here for it! You do not run me and bully me I will fight back. You don’t take credit for bullying her to post ! I pray everyday for Nigeria and all countries that are being abused and murdered for the color 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 in their own way!!!!

#Repost @mspackyetti with @get_repost ・・・ #endSARS. I was out last week for my mental health. Upon returning, I’ve been doing my level best to listen, learn and collect information to share with you. Why? Because we do not get to stand idly by. As we used to say on the streets of #Ferguson, “Ferguson is everywhere.” Police violence is a global issue. Repression by terroristic regimes is an international issue. What’s more, in Nigeria, SARS is a threat to everyone-and especially our Nigerian LGBTQ+ family. We can not look away. The slides above are sourced from endsars.carrd.co, @kyyahabdul, and @feminist.co. I’ve also been following @matthew.blaise, and a host of activists on Twitter, many who are listed in the resources at the #LinkInBio. If you are IN Nigeria and are protesting, the carrd link has resources for you listed under “Supporting Protests.” If you are OUTSIDE of Nigeria, the carrd resource has directions on where to donate, who to follow, and where to learn more under “Resources” It’s important to note: @feminist.co is accepting donations in Bitcoin through a platform that ensures funds can not be intercepted by government entities and can reach protestors directly. If you don’t understand how to do that, don’t worry-there are directions at their link. From OUTSIDE of the US, the easiest platform to do this through is CashApp, which is included in their instructions. If you have never used Bitcoin (like me), set it up on CashApp and then return to the donation site for the remaining instructions. It IS legit & @feminist.co has been giving an accounting of where the funds are going on their pages, if that interests you. I’ll continue to post in my stories, so that you can swipe up directly to links. I’ll continue to #PrayForNigeria-and then match my prayers with actions, because “faith without works is dead.” I hope you’ll join me in continuing to share and amplify what you learn, and support how you can. To our family in #Nigeria, we see you, we stand with you, and we shine light on your humanity as you stand with courage, bravery and power. Let’s get free 🇳🇬✊🏾
