South African Celebrities And Influencers Take Part In Blackout Tuesday

Blackout Tuesday is a planned collective action by elements of the music industry to protest racism and police violence. The action, organized in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 2, 2020. Businesses taking part are encouraged to abstain from releasing music and other business operations.

The call to action was initiated by music executives Brianna Agyemang and Jamila Thomas, Senior Director of Marketing at Atlantic Records. The Music company did this as part of the Black Lives Matter movement and wanted artists and businesses to stand in solidarity and unity during this time.

Today most South African Celebrities and influences decided to join the movement. This includes Actors like Terry Phetho and Dineo Moeketsi, Dancers and choreographers like Bontle Modiselle, Musicians like Black Coffee and NaakMusiq as well as TV personalities such as Nandi Madida, Minnie Dlamini and Bonang Matheba.
