Wizkid has managed to piss off his Zimbabwean fans. The Nigerian star was billed for his first ever show last night being April 8th, 2016 in Zimbabwe but for some reasons best known to the Ojuelegba crooner, he did not show up.
TheNet reported that Zimbabwean media reacted to Wizkid’s unprofessional act as fans gathered at the venue (Old Hararians Sports Club) from 7pm to 2am in the rain waiting for Wizkid who never showed up. According to them;“After a number of local acts, including the likes of Cynthia Mare, Mzoe7, Cal_Vin and Jr. Brown staged some lukewarm performances ’till around 1 am, the crowd began demanding for Wizkid to come on stage as the rain became heavier”.
“Shockingly, the organisers decided to bring Judgement Yard on stage; they had an outstanding session which proved that even the uptown youth love dancehall. Their set kept the crowd hyped up until around 2 am–and then there was silence”.
Efforts to get to Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Aare proved abortive but we would update you as soon as there is a response.
Fans also sounded their displeasure on twitter. See tweets below;
Zambian promoters need to learn from what Wizkid did in Zimbabwe yesterday. We hope y'all have sold enough tickets.

More people in Zambia than Zimbabwe are upset Wizkid didn't perform in Zimbabwe, the attendance at his show in Zim was that bad.
