The call for justice to be served following the tragic  death of Vespers Shimuzhila, a fourth year University of Zambia student, has gone international, with Nigerian singer Mr Eazi tweeting his support.

Shimuzhila died of suffocation after police fired teargas in her room during a raid at UNZA meant to quell a riot.

As local celebrities and social media enthusiasts took turns paying their last respects, Mr Eazi also took to Twitter to voice out his support, even changing his Twitter name to UNZAMOURNS.

The Afrobeat sensation whose real name is Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade described Shimunzila’s death as untimely and avoidable and called for justice to be served. He concluded his tweet with the hushtag #justice4vespers.

“Just heard of the untimely and avoidable death of a student in her hostel! Wish her family & the entire nation & student community comfort in this time, and above all I join UNZA in saying these must stop, lives must be valued & protected! Justice must be served! #justice4vespers,” tweeted the music star best known for his hits ‘Leg Over’ and ‘Pour Me Water’

Meanwhile, local musician and activist B’Flow has released a song in honour of the late Shimunzila titled ‘Buju Brutality’.

“Talk is cheap. Enough is enough!
Download my new song in loving memory of Vespers Shimuzhila.
It’s called #BujuBrutality as we demand #JusticeforVespers,” tweeted B’Flow on Tuesday.
