Ugandans who had anticipated for the Wizkid concert ever since it’s announcement at the beginning of the year are currently nursing broken hearts. This has come after reports about the Nigerian Pop Star Wizkid not being able to perform in Uganda as it was earlier planned.
The news has already leaked on social media something which forced the organisers of the show, Startimes and Face TV to come out and issue a statement.
Yesterday, it was said that Wizkid would touch base in Uganda at around 8pm but was later changed claiming his flight was delayed and he would be in Uganda at 3am in the morning. A big number of journalists were taken to the airport to receive the Singer but they had to wait until forever and guess what, the singer was nowhere to be seen.
This morning, the organisers again announced that the singer would be in Uganda this morning and he would be addressing the press but when a team of media personels from different houses went to Startimes offices on Soliz house for a Press Conference, the organisers headed by Christine (other names withheld) locked herself in the boardroom and refused to talk to Journalists.
After minutes of shame, she came out and told them Wizkid would be arriving after lunch so they should go and come back later in the evening. They were only saved by social media rants that confirmed the Ojuelegba singer was not in the country and not coming anytime soon meaning the concert was also called off.
Apparently, according www.36ng.com.ng a Nigerian Website, it is said that Wizkid is in the US working on an International Album with Tinie Tempah. We can now confirm that Ugandan Music has literally won Nigerian music because Sheeba Karungi and Big Eye are having concerts on the same weekend as Wizkid.
Ugandans have managed to handle the pressure by not rescheduling their concerts but staying strong and making it happen. Music Manager Jeff Kiwa had not put down his gun as he tried as much as he could to push Sheeba’s concert until the D-day which is today. Big Eye on the other side was having sleepless nights trying to push his concert at La Grande Hotel in Bwaise and it will happen tomorrow.
