After weeks of complaining that Beyoncé hadn’t posted much about her recent trip to SA, she took to her 120 million plus Instagram followers to give a well merited shoutout to South Africa.
Beyoncé headlined with her husband JAY-Z at the Global Citizen Festival at FNB stadium earlier this month.
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. If you would like to become a Global Citizen you can get more info at globalcitizen.org

A sudden unexpected event took place where Beyoncé posted a video which features a highlight short clip of herself on set using the DJ Maphorisa track “iWalk Ye Phara” featuring Zulu Mkhathini, K.O, DJ Raybel and Moonchild Sanelly as the background setting track.
While twitter users were celebrating the fact that Beyoncé posted about her trip with two captions, it was also pronounced that “iWalk Ye Phara” is officially the song of the summer.
Pharrell played Omunye by Distruction Boyz at the Global Citizen. Beyoncé edited her video with iWalk ye’Phara by Dj Maphorisa . dankie gqom https://t.co/b5iWAr25FF
Very kind of Beyoncé to provide clarity on the song of the year matter. It was looking bleak.
Beyoncé new IG video features ‘iWalk Ye Phara’ 🔥🔥🔥
Thanks to Beyoncé Now Nayi lewalk might make it as song of the year Or kanjani????
Some of you are saying Dj Maphorisa is international now because Beyonce posted a video with iWalk Ye Phara playing in the background when he’s BEEN international – he co-produced One Dance for Drake and worked on a track with Major Lazer.
