H.E.R. used her appearance as musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” to promote the #EndSARS movement, a global campaign against the police brutality in Nigeria.
H.E.R., who debuted her new song titled “Hold On,” was accompanied by a band wearing black t-shirts that read “#ENDSARS,” a campaign seeking to shut down the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) task force in Nigeria.

Several musicians, including Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj, have voiced their support and called to end the violence against peaceful protesters.
