WizKid explains why he did not show up at Accra concert

Nigerian music star, Wizkid has said that his decision not to show up at Saturday night’s Wizkid Live in Accra concert was the right thing to do at the time.

In an official statement issued on Twitter on Sunday evening, the Ojuelegba hitmaker apologised to his fans for the unfortunate incident, while explaining that he would never do anything without serious reasoning.

“Ghana is a country I hold so dear to my heart, first and foremost, I wanna apologise to all my fans! Y'all know I would never do anything, without a serious reasoning behind it. My brand is something I don't joke with! I sincerely apologise, to everyone who made the effort to come out for me last night. I was charged up, looking forward to doing this show.

“However, please understand that every decision I made co-sided with honoring my fans, and would only make a drastic decision like this because it was the right thing to do and I had to. Unfortunately, up until the day of this show, there continued to be safety and production issues that prevented me from putting on a high-quality show that my fans deserve.

“My Team and Myself are working on delivering a show to my amazing fans in Ghana. It will be just us, me and you. Date and details soon. Love you.(sic),” the statement said.

Wizkid’s statement may possibly calm down many disgruntled patrons at Saturday night’s show who have relentlessly vented their spleen at Wizkid for disrespecting them by not showing up as promoted.

Now, it appears the situation has become a game of blames as earlier Sunday, the organisers of Live Hub entertainment blamed Wizkid for breaching his contractual obligation.
