Alicia Keys & Husband Swizz Beatz Hold Protest to Bring Back Our Girls

Alicia Keys holds up a sign while leading a protest outside the Nigerian Consulate on Tuesday (October 14) in New York City.

The 33-year-old singer was joined by husband Swizz Beatz while demanding the return of the 200-plus girls abducted by Boko Haram militants in April.

“Today is my son’s birthday and it is also making me stand in solidarity with all the mothers of the Chibok girls who have been abducted for six months and are still missing. And it is just outrageous that that’s going on,” Alica shared at the protest.

She added, “Some people have even told me they’ve heard things about ‘there’s been progress,’ but there hasn’t been progress because the girls aren’t back. So I think that we get mixed information. We don’t know, so we just have to keep being made aware of what’s happening.”
