Wizkid Missing at His Live Concert in Accra

Wizkid failed to show up for his advertised live concert scheduled for Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana capital on Saturday night.

Patrons who thronged the venue to witness the musician perform were left in despair following no signs of him taking up the stage.

Fans started leaving the venue at about 2.40am after noticing the signs of Wizkid not showing up, and he eventually did not.

It was after performances from Ghanaian acts Darko Vibes, Kelvyn Boy, Joey B, Smallgod Asakaa Boys, Lasmid, Efya, and Gyakie who were also billed to perform.

The Accra Sports Stadium is a 40,000 capacity, all-seater and just about 5,000 patrons made it to the venue.

Many have alluded the low turnout to ticket pricing and not promotion because it ran on a number of traditional and new media platforms in the country, including the media conglomerate of EIB Network, Media General, and Multimedia Group.

Tickets were sold at GHc250 ($20), and GHc600 ($46) for regulars, and GHc3,000 ($230) for VIPs.

Later in the day, the event promoters Live Hub had to share free event tickets to tertiary students after sales of tickets went down, despite earlier announcing its selling out quick.

The concert forms part of Wizkid‘s promotion of his “More Love, Less Ego” album and organisers Live Hub Entertainment had earlier in the day tweeted that he is in town for the concert.

Wizkid also tweeted earlier that “Accra Sports Stadium tonight!”, affirming his presence at his concert.

It took the MCs Kojo Manuel and Pocolee as well as DJ Tunez to turn up the place a bit until the energy finally die off and the dismantling of the stage setup started minutes after 4am.,

While some patrons ask for a refund, others believe he should also be banned from performing in the country and organisers sanctioned.

Wizkid is the first Nigerian artiste with a diamond certified record in US for “One Dance”, a song Drake featured him and Kyla on.
