Show agency criticises singer for evading concert
The singer has enjoyed rapid success, with recent high profile international collaboration that has made him one of the best music acts to come out of Nigeria.
The agency, who are the organisers of Safari Night gigs, released a statement online, apologising to fans for Wizkid's failure to perform at the concert.
The statement released on May 26th, 2016, reads, "HumbeEnts first and foremost would like to express our sincere apologies for any inconvenience and disappointment caused by Wizkid being unable to attend our event. We worked tirelessly to rectify this issue but unfortunately it was beyond our control. Despite going through all the necessary procedure to book Wizkid, which included signing a contract and paying the required fee, we have been let down by the booking/management parties."
Sunday Are, the owner of List Entertainment, which represents Wizkid in Nigeria has however denied any knowledge of the cancelled performance.
Are made this known on his posts on Twitter, where he reacted to the accusation made by Humble Entertainment.
He wrote, "please always get your facts right. I don't know about this. Nobody discussed this with me".
Wizkid is already fixed to join American singer, Chris Brown, as a special guest on his "One Hell of a Nite" tour in Denmark, Germany and Holland.
Brown made the announcement recently on his Twitter, where Wizkid was revealed on the cover of a banner.
