IGERIAN singer Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun (WizKid) who is likely to perform in Uganda according to his tweets has been shunned by some Ugandans who didnt take his fox as a joke.
Close to six months after his no-show, in December 2016, Wizkid broke his silence with a tweet promising to give two free shows in Uganda, to make up for cancelling last year’s concert.
The tweet announcement on his verified account went like: “I’m doing free shows in Uganda this year! 2days free to make up for last time!”
However some Ugandans are seen not to be a crowd that can be taken for a ‘ride’ as most young men openly told him off in the tweet replies. Someactually advised Wizkid to prepare and come with his audience.
Wizkid was supposed to perform in Uganda in Kampala on December 3 last year in a concert dubbed ‘Wizkid Live in Concert’ but his concert was later cancelled for hitherto unknown reasons.
Following the cancellation, the organisers of the show, Face TV, later issued a statement apologizing to the fans before invoking Interpol to attest the artiste for breach of contract and fraud.
The timing of his tweet comes hot on the heels of a public outcry by international events promoter Suudi Lukwago who threatened to sue the show organizers, Face TV for taking Ugandans for a ride and tainting the image of the industry. According to Suudi, many half-truths and blatant lies were exchanged and in the end, Ugandans were fooled.
