“Dancers, creatives. I’m calling the same way they used their platforms to elevate and show the world that black is king and how beautiful Afrobeat and Africa and our culture is. I want them to please use their voice and their platforms right now because the same country that birth this genre is on fire. Right now. It is on fire. Where these creatives are from is on fire,” Savage said during the Instagram livestream, inviting Queen Bey.
She then made a plea to her whole Parkwood Entertainment team, urging that they do not remain in silence or ignore. “Because we all celebrated Black is King,” Savage added. “I personally was so proud of that project but please you cannot be quiet on this. You cannot.”
The ‘Koroba’ singer continued that although she might receive backlash or even blacklisted for her actions, she will not back down. She said since Fela was the pioneer of Afrobeat it’s only right that everyone stand up for what he believed in, which is pushing back oppression.
