Delicious Festival reacts to Tiwa Savage’s withdrawal from show due to Xenophobic attack


Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, announced the cancellation of her upcoming South African show due to the xenophobic attack which was billed to hold on 21st September.


“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,”


she tweeted on Tuesday.

The organisers of this year’s DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival reacted to Tiwa’s decision saying they were aware of the decision and were in discussions with her management.

“DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival is aware of Tiwa Savage’s tweet, and is in discussions with her management. As a festival, we have always been an inclusive event with our gates open to everybody, irrespective of where they come from.

“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.

However, Nadia Nakai and Prince Kaybee slammed Tiwa’s decision, calling it an “insensitive” tweet being a celebrity.

We should be! She has a big following, tweeting things like that can influence more violence against ALL Africans…. power of influence, don’t act like her or the other artists don’t have it… they shouldn’t be tweeting stuff like that. It’s putting fuel to the fire. https://t.co/QDlyzDo25O
