Celebrated Nigerian music star Wizkid has broken his silence over a no-show at an event he was billed to headline at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana.
In a statement, the musician revealed his decision not to show up for the event was premised on a number of reasonable conditions.
He also promised a concert for his fans.
“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 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 honouring 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 the high-quality show that my fans deserved. 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”
