Wizkid and Peter Obi Wizkid and Peter Obi

The management of Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly known as Wizkid, have stated reasons why the superstar would not be performing at the concert of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

A flyer making rounds indicated that the “Essence” crooner would be performing at Peter Obi’s concert in Eagles Square, Abuja.

The flyer had the picture of Wizkid and Peter Obi alongside his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed with the inscription, “2023 OBIDATTI SHOWDOWN MUSIC CONCERT”.

Reacting to the flyer making rounds, Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Are, took to social media to distance himself and Wizkid from the concert.

He described the flyer as a scam and warned the public to be wary of the act. He also noted that legal action will be taken against the originator.

Sunday Aare wrote,

“This is to inform the general public that this event led by @avotujohnson1st is a scam!!! Wizkid and his management know nothing about this event and accordingly, he will not perform at the said event as claimed, so please beware of this poster and information put out from its organizers as Wizkid and his management will not be liable for any damages. Appropriate legal action is currently being explored against the persons responsible for creating and disseminating this false information. @wizkidayo @wizkidnews”
