Multiple award-winning Nigerian Afrobeat sensation, Wizkid, officially known as Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, has left the people who purchased the tickets for his Wizkid Live Concert at the Accra Sports Stadium angry.
The concert which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 10, 2022, is being described by many as a total waste of time and money.
The patrons who had paid huge sums of money with the expectation of seeing the musician mount the stage to thrill them were left disappointed after he failed to turn up, despite tweeting about it earlier in the day.
Accra Sports Stadium tonight! 🇬🇭

According to various commentaries sighted on social media about the concert, the DJ and MC for the events were left to keep the crowd going for over two hours after some acts like Yaw Tog mounted the stage to perform.
Despite the long wait, Wizkid and the other headline musicians failed to turn up at the concert.
Currently, a lot of people who purchased the tickets are requesting that the musician refunds their money to them.
About 5000 people stood waiting for an artist and he decided not to show up. The authorities should intervene. He should be banned and the organizers should be sanctioned. It’s rather distasteful.
