Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage has cancelled her upcoming show  scheduled to hold in Johannesburg South Africa on the 21st of September.

Tiwa Savage’s decision was triggered by  Nigerians and other foreigners in South Africa being the target of attacks since last week when a taxi driver was killed by an alleged drug peddler from Tanzania in Pretoria. Foreign-owned businesses have been looted and burnt in different parts of the country.

The singer made this known via her verified Twitter account:” 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”


Her tweet has sparked diverse reactions with many Nigerians supporting her stand.

In one of the numerous replies, a certain South African Twitter user wrote:” No one has butchered your people but it’s fine. Thanks for taking a stand”.


Tiwa Savage replied him saying:” Killing any one that is African are my people whether they are Nigerians or not”.
