Nigerian singer, Wizkid has come under attacks on Twitter following his failure to perform at the Coachella Festival, California.
Wizkid was expected to perform at the event alongside Beyoncé but eventually did not show up. But the organisers of the festival assured that Wizkid would be performing next week.
However, some Nigerians, who were frustrated and disappointed at the sudden change in plans, took a swipe at Wizkid. They called him out over his attitude towards fans.
The ‘Soco’ singer also took to Twitter to explain to his fans that his band “had some visa issues” hence his inability to make it for the festival.
“Band had some visa issues…I’m upset bt see y’all next week,” he tweeted.
@sherrydanesi “Wizkid was irresponsible & should have gotten shit sorted MONTHS in advance. He claims to be the greatest African musician so he should act like it.”
@Nira380 “So, Wizkid and his team couldn’t sort out his US Visa issues for over 8 months and he missed performing at Coachella??!! Village pipu at work!
@Ethniesjags “Wizkid will not prepare on time to perform at Coachella after being booked 8 months prior, but tell him one of his songs are wack now, he will block you.”
@Bhadoosky ” Wizkid coming up with excuses these days: Passport renewal got delayed, visa issues, feeling sick, trying to catch his breathe, the loud he smoked was too bad he can’t rehearse …. Davido is always catching flights and turning up! Talent is great, but hardwork cuts.”
@Ninocole “Same sh*t happened last year where you miss BIG SHOWS due to visa issues!. It’s crazy!
@Thebond “Every time a big show comes up, there’s always an issue of visa especially with you, Wizkid! This is something you could have sorted out several weeks before the show.”
@Jozzhiezoe “Wizkid don’t come up with this kind of excuse few hours to your performance! I mean you performed without your band during wireless. I have waited for today like forever!!
@Goldkayson “Can’t Wizkid just perform alone… It’s really f**king painful for not seeing the whole Starboy not performing today.. Been thinking maybe Wizkid is Using unpleasant excuses so that The Weeknd won’t sue him concerning the name STARBOY issues they had earlier.
@Modest_mulla “You not suppose to be having this sort of issues no more.”
@Vyounqberry “Blaad…You just blowing up opportunities.You should represent us out there… You’ll always come back home with flimsy excuses whenever something big is about to happen.”
