Multi-award winning singer, Beyonce reflects on her visit to South Africa during the Global Citizen Festival and credits African trailblazers who were part of her performance
With a following of 121 million on Instagram, Beyonce is her own media entity. The singer reflected on her trips to both South Africa and India in the early days of December 2018, where she gave her magnetic performances. She shared her experiences on IG, with DJ Maphorisa’s Iwalk ye phara song in the background, “After settling in at home from a beautiful trip to South Africa and India, I am still in awe that 7.1 BILLION dollars was raised to aid Global Citizen in its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty.
I’d like to give my praise and respect to all the speakers, performers, and volunteers who donated their time to contribute to making positive change. Every person in the audience at FNB Stadium earned a seat because they generously donated their time to help their community. Now their efforts and the money raised will help improve education, healthcare, sanitation, women’s rights, and countless other causes for millions across the globe.
I felt so much positivity and pride in the audience at Global Citizen: Mandela 100. Madiba, Johannesburg, and all of my African sisters and brothers, we hope we made you as proud as you all make us. South Africa was an extraordinary trip for me and my family. God bless.

The video hit more than a million videos just hours after it was uploaded and it sure got people talking on social media platforms, while the man himself, DJ Maphorisa was left speechless.
