Like Ghana, Wizkid fails to show up in Abidjan, faces backlash

Sharing is caring!

While his fans in Ghana were yet to get over their frustration and disappointment over his disappearance from a scheduled show over the weekend, Nigeria’s Afropop music star, WizKid again behaved true to type and disappointed thousands of fans who paid 100,000 CFA to watch him perform on Sunday in Abidjan, the Ivory Coast capital city.

WizKid was earlier at the receiving end of heated criticism for failing to perform at a concert in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Wizkid was again billed to perform at a concert in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on Sunday but didn’t show up.

It is understood that fans had paid up to 100,000 CFA francs, a little over N70,000, to obtain a ticket.

It is also understood that the singer went instead to perform at another show in Cotonou.
The latest controversy comes after the singer’s failure to perform in Ghana caused an intense backlash.

The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner was billed to perform at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
But he failed to show up at the event, leaving many Ghanaians angry.

Live Hub, the show promoter, had accused Wizkid of “breaching his contractual obligation”.

Several fans enraged by his absence at the concert also demanded his arrest.

Reacting to the backlash in a statement on Sunday, Wizkid apologised for his absence at the concert.

He attributed the development to “safety and production issues”.

The singer said it hindered him from delivering the quality show that his fans deserve.

It remains to be seen if Wizkid would be issuing yet another apology, this time for Abidjan.
