“We do not tolerate any form of discrimination and will continue to ensure that the festival is a safe and inclusive place for all,” the statement read.
Tiwa Savage joined Burna Boy on boycott South Africa after another xenophobic attack erupted in Mzansi directed to fellow non-South Africans especially Nigerians.
Last day, Burna Boy said he won’t make Mzansi move until something is fixed following the attack while Tiwa decided to drop gig at the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival.
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.
