Over the weekend, Ghanaians who had spent exorbitant amounts of money to purchase tickets for a Wizkid show in Accra had a rude awakening after the singer failed to make an appearance.
Disappointed patrons waited at the Accra sports stadium from late Saturday all the way to the early hours of Sunday to no avail – Wizkid refused to arrive and perform.
Other Ghanaian artistes such as King Promise and R2Bees also followed Big Wiz’s lead.
Per reports, Wizkid was not happy with the attendance and production quality of the show and thus decided to swerve fans.
He later did the same in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, but managed to fulfil his obligations in Cotonou, Benin.
Wizkid has released a statement apologising to Ghanaians, claiming he would never compromise on some things for his shows and promising refunds.
Following the incident, one Ghanaian artiste who would have been over the moon would be Shatta Wale.
Wale has warned against Ghanaians neglecting our own artistes for Nigerians and Wizkid showing Ghanaians pepper appears to vindicate him in a way.
Whilst Wale has yet to explicitly react to the incident, Efia Odo claims she knows he’s laughing in happiness somewhere.
“Shattawale is somewhere laughing his a** offfffff😂,” Efia Odo wrote on Twitter in the wake of the scandal.
Knowing Shatta Wale – you can’t disagree!
