Wizkid apologises to fans for failing to perform in Ghana


For failing to perform at a concert he was supposed to headline in Ghana, Nigerian superstar Ayo Balogun, aka Wizkid, has tendered an unreserved apology to his fans.

The singer was billed to perform at the Wizkid Live concert scheduled for last Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

It was to be the first time the Afrobeats sensation would be headlining a concert in Ghana.

Extending his heartfelt apology to his fans on Twitter on Sunday evening, Wizkid said that Ghana is a country he holds so dear to his heart.

The singer had in the past referred to the West African country as his second home.

“Y’all know I would never do anything, without serious reasoning behind it. My brand is something I don’t joke with.

“I sincerely apologise, to everyone who made the profound come out tonight. I was charged up, and looking forward to doing this show,” he wrote.

According to the platinum-selling singer, every decision he made was to honour his fans and would only make a drastic decision like that because it was the right thing to do.

“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 I are working on delivering a show to my amazing fans in Ghana. It will be just the exhibit and you. Date and details soon,” he appealed.

About 40,000 fans were expected at the Accra Stadium, the event venue, most of whom showed up.

The show was also supposed to be the singer’s first performance of his new album, ‘More Love Less Ego’ in Africa.

The Final Entertainment Group, the parent company of Live Hub Entertainment, put together Wizkid Live.

Several Ghana’s music artists were also expected at the event.
