Wizkid Misses Abidjan Show

KanyiDaily recalls that Ghanaians had been dragging Wizkid after he refused to show up for a show titled “Wizkid Live” at the Accra Sports Stadium, where he was to perform on Saturday, the 10th of December.

The show organisers had accused Wizkid of “breaching his contractual obligation” by refusing to perform at the stadium which had fans waiting till 5 a.m the next day to see the star who arrived in Ghana a day before the show.

Rumours have it that Wizkid refused to show up for the concert because he was unsatisfied with the attendance and the fact that it could destroy his ‘Sold out king’ track record, hence his absence.

But, in a statement on Sunday night, Wizkid said he failed to show up at the concert due to “safety and production issues” which he said are likely to hinder him from delivering a quality show that his fans deserve.

The singer also apologised to his fans who felt disappointed by his non-appearance, saying that Ghana is a country he holds so dear to his heart, stressing that he is working to organise another show for his Ghanaian fans.

After facing intense criticism for missing his Ghana show, Wizkid suffered the same fate after missing his show in Abidjan.

Multiple media reports in Ivory Coast including from the French language LSI Africa portal confirmed that Wizkid didn’t show up for the Abidjan show despite tweeting about the event hours before the event began.

The Nigerian singer was billed to perform in Abidjan, as well as Cotonou on the same day, December 11, 2022, but only one of the two cities got to see him.

According to reports, Wizkid was supposed to be in Abidjan at 6 p.m., but six hours later, he was no where to be found. However, the singer performed at the Cotonou show, which was scheduled for 11 p.m.

Expected in Accra on Saturday for a concert, the Nigerian artiste @wizkidayo never showed up. Sunday in Abidjan, he was conspicuously absent from another show, but he was seen tonight in Cotonou, Benin, where he landed on a private jet shortly before midnight,” LSI Africa tweeted late Sunday.

In Cotonou, Wizkid thrilled the audience with a soothing performance of his smash tunes like ‘Soco’, ‘Bad to Me’, ‘Joro’ ‘Azonto’, ‘Show you the money’ and more.

Meanwhile, social media users are dragging Wizkid for not respecting the African market after he was billed for three shows in Accra, Abidjan as well as Cotonou, but attended only one.
