“Because where these creatives are from, is on fire so I’m calling on Beyoncé and the whole team and I’m telling you, you cannot ignore this, you cannot be quiet because we all celebrated the Black is King.“
Toke on the other hand wrote on Twitter: “Dear @KimKardashian have you heard about what is going on in Nigeria? Police brutality? They are shooting, looting, raping and killing innocent Nigerians, we know all your work on prison reforms pls could you support us with your platform?”
The 35-year-old radio host also called on Kim Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner saying, “Dear @KylieJenner you have such a huge influence on the youth of this generation, Nigeria is going through one of the hardest things right now, we need you to pls use your platform to support the citizens of Nigeria against Police brutality.
