Basketmouth who apparently felt disturbed by the tragic spate of events, took to his Instagram page to reveal that he has canceled his upcoming appearance at the Comic Choice Awards which was supposed to be held in South Africa.

His words ;

‘I am not sure how and when we got here.

I won’t be attending the comics choice awards this weekend in S.A as scheduled.

It might sound like a whisper but together our voices and the right action will hopefully make a true difference.

Read Change can begin.

But for today, we stand.’
