“We regret to inform you and all of our esteemed fans that Wizkid is unable to fly to Uganda for the show as planned, on December 3, 2016, due to unavoidable circumstances,” Face TV, one of the people behind the failed concert broke the bad news today to his fans, who were anxiously waiting for tomorrow’s show.
Whereas the reason as to why he won’t be in the country hasn’t been given by press time, one version of what really happened blames Face TV for the failure of the show.
It is feared that Face TV, which booked the musician might have duped StarTime, the main sponsors of the show who paid a whooping Shs350, 000,000 to the musician to perform at their show as they celebrate 6 years.
The show was initially scheduled for tomorrow. It is believed that Face TV is likely not to have paid Wizkid the agreed money since he has never shared the show on any of his social media like he has been doing with other shows.
Though, it is also claimed that the musician failed to make it to Uganda because he is still holed up in the USA, where he was shooting a music video.
Wizkid signed with US music label, Sony Music a deal worth US $3 million. He is said to have recorded an album that didn’t please the label. He was called to the US to re-record the album and that is what he is still doing. He didn’t know he would still be recording the album to date by the time he was booked for the concert.
A section of the public believes the ‘On Top Of The Matter’ hit maker might have feared putting his life at risk for they believe the clashes are all over the country.
Though, it ought to be remembered that the musician performed in Uganda in 2014 at an invite-only show thanks to Guinness.
