WATCH: H.E.R.’s Anti-Police Brutality Message During ‘SNL’ Performance
During this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, H.E.R. showed support for the #EndSARS movement, a campaign to end police brutality in Nigeria.
While singing her new single “Hold On,” her backup vocalists and band members wore shirts with the hashtag.
The #EndSARS campaign calls for the Nigerian government to shut down the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) task force. The demonstrations earned international attention after a video allegedly showed squad members shooting a man in the state of Delta.
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu confirmed one person was killed but said it was an isolated incident and did not say if the deceased was a protester.
Thank you, H.E.R., for having the courage to shine a light on the issue. Watch the performance below:
