‘We’re not hungry’: Nigerians express displeasure at Beyoncé’s #EndSARS response

“We are collaborating with coalitions to provide emergency healthcare, food, and shelter,” the statement said.

But Nigerians on social media took issue with the content of her statement.


“We are not HUNGRY!! UNLESS she’s talking about hungry for justice,” someone else tweeted.

Others thought Beyonce’s response was a little too late.

“I actually don’t think this is still necessary to be honest. At the time we (my folks who’re your fans) really needed you dear @Beyonce you no show up. Now matters are already out of hand. And guys this working in the background stuff doesn’t really work here,we need to see you,” Agboola Olubori commented.
