Ghanaians are calling for the arrest of Nigerian afrobeat superstar, Wizkid, after he refused to show up for his concert at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Wizkid Concert In Ghana
It was gathered that the singer was meant to perform at the stadium on Saturday but left his fans confused after the technical team began to dissemble their equipment at 4:00 am, the next day.
As they waited indefinitely for Wizkid to mount the stage since 4 pm the previous day, several performances were witnessed from the likes of Gyakie, Efya, Darkovibes, and so on, except the man of the moment.
The atmosphere was filled with bitterness and rage from the audience who either requested a refund or insisted on witnessing Wizkid on stage before they leave.
When Wizkid’s official Disc Jockey, ‘DJ Tunez’, took over the stage, expectations went high and the mood was energized as many thought the ‘Essence’ hitmaker was next.
But, as the live band mixes began to take longer than expected, the crowd’s enthusiasm began to die down and yet still, the organizers failed to inform them about Wizkid’s development.
It was gathered that the crowd was left in limbo until about 3:47am when ‘DJ Tunez screamed twice “the promoter fucked up” over Black Sherif’s “Kwaku the Traveller,” and that was when the crowd got the memo.
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.
Patrons who purchased tickets for as much as 8,000 Ghana Cedis and Vip tables worth over 12,000 cedis had no option but to leave the stadium and return home after waiting 12 hours for Wizkid who did not show up.
“Wizkid Breached Contract’
Meanwhile, the show organizers has apologized to the patrons for the inconvenience caused and assured them to send their ticket barcodes for a refund.
The organizers claimed that Wizkid breached his contractual obligation by refusing to perform although they met all his requests.
They posted the apology on Instagram saying: “For any inconvenience this may have caused, we sincerely apologize. Please provide your ticket barcode to our email so that we can grant everyone a complete refund.”
Although Wizkid is yet to issue a statement regarding his absence at the concert, Ghanaians have taken to social media to call for his arrest after he refused to show up for the concert they paid for.

if ghanaian police doesn’t arrest wizkid for breaking his contractual obligations within 48hrs, then it clearly means most africans are blinded by favoritism and faux humility.
it’s even a big slap on the organizers’ face because he obviously doesn’t rate fans and ticket buyers.

The country is in a crisis, things are tough so when people save their 300/500 cedis for a concert just to be happy for a few hours, the least you can do is honour that, make them forget their problems even if it’s just for a few hours, don’t stress them out! #WizkidLiveAccra

Wizkid refused to perform after a very low turn out at his #WizkidLiveAccra stadium concert last night.

When Asake apologised for arriving late at Birmingham for his show, I said he would never apologize in Africa.
Now, Wizkid did not show up in Ghana for his show after fans spent over N400k on table.
Authorities should arrest these unruly artistes. pic.twitter.com/IdHJHjNiae
