Wizkid To Be Arrested Over Absence At Ghana Concert
Wizkid, the Nigerian music star, has come under fire for not showing up at a concert in Ghana.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner was billed to perform at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
In a Twitter post, he also confirmed he would be performing at the concert.
But the ‘Essence’ crooner was said to have dissapointed his Ghanaian fans after he failed to show up at the concert as promised.
Live Hub, the show promoter, confirmed Wizkid’s absence at the highly-publicised concert while accusing him of “breaching his contractual obligation”.
In a statement, the show promoter apologised over Wizkid’s absence. It also promised to refund those who paid for tickets.
“Wizkid breached his contractual obligation last night. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused,” the statement reads.
“We will issue full refunds to all who paid for tickets. Please send your barcode to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Wizkid’s absence at the event has continued to elicit a wave of criticism on Twitter, with some users demanding his arrest.
In now-viral video clips, music lovers were seen exiting the concert venue while lamenting the hours they wasted waiting for the singer.
Some users, however, defended the musician, arguing that his absence was due to “poor planning” by the organisers.
Wizkid was in the news recently after he claimed he does not listen to rap music because the genre is “boring and dead”.
The singer further stretches the list of Nigerian celebrities who have been called out for not showing up at their events.
Wizkid is yet to react as of the time of this report.
