I and future generations deserve a better Zimbabwe. It’s not too much to ask for and that’s all we are asking for. Fix Zimbabwe for the sake of it’s people. As artists we aren’t your enemies, we are in this together.#ZimbabweanLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/1NGa0PSf5m

I love my country, I love my people and as a proud Zimbabwean I refuse to sit back and watch my country and people suffer. I call on our Government to do better to protect our people, not just those who support them.#WeSayNoToViolence#prayforZimbabwe #ZimbabweLivesMatter
