- Beyonce's mother, Tina Lawson, has taken to social media to respond to Tiwa Savage's video
- Tina told Tiwa that she could have reached out to her daughter through her team instead of going to social media
- The US singer's mother said her daughter is not Nigeria's spokesperson or their political leader
Tina Lawson, the mother of popular US singer Beyonce, has spoken out in defence of her daughter after she was called out for not adding her voice to the EndSARS protest.
It was earlier reported that singer Tiwa Savage made a video where she called on Beyonce to say something about the protest, noting that her team reached out to Nigerian creatives for the Black Is King project to show the world the beauty of Afrobeat and Africa.
Speaking on Tiwa's video, Beyonce's mother faulted her for taking to social media instead of reaching out to her through her team on helping with the protest.
According to the elderly woman, her popular daughter is not Nigeria's political leader or spokesperson.

Read excerpts from her long post below:
"No matter what my daughter does, she is scrutinised and torn apart. She makes a record and uses all African artist, producers, writer. She is criticised because she didn't get artistes from every country in Africa. There are 52 countries!
... She made art!! She is an artist! That is what artist do. She is not your political leader or your whipping board. I have had enough of the hating and I'm personally tired of the attacks.
... I pray every day for Nigeria and all countries that are being abused and murdered for the colour 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 their own way."
