Yesterday, December 16, the media was shocked to receive reports of an arrest warrant issued to Nigerian pop star, Wizkid by magistrates of Buganda court for missing a concert in Uganda.

The Nigerian pop star was unable to fly into Uganda from USA for the concert scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 3 at Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala due to ‘unavoidable circumstances’ according to the organisers.

‘We’re on it, we’re talking to them, I need to know who sent it,’ Wizkid‘s manager, Sunday Are told Thenetng.

The singer, who is presently tending to health issues in the US, and his manager, were summoned to be produced in court on or before January 16, 2017.

Are also assured us that Wizkid is doing fine.

Substantial expenses in booking and re-booking flights, hotel, venue, advertising and promotions for the concert grossed over $300,000 (over N144m), according to the organisers.

‘Between 29th August 2016 and 29th November 2016, our client (Face TV) paid to Mr. Sunday Are, Wizkid’s manager the full performance fee of US$60,000, a brokerage fee of US$5,000 and US$3,000 being per diem for the days they were going to stay in Uganda,’ documents filed by the Chief Magistrates Court of Buganda detailed.

Complaints lodged against Wizkid and his manager include cheating, conspiracy to defraud and obtaining money by false presences which could sum up to a 11 year jail term if they’re found guilty.

Over 25,000 Ugandans had paid for tickets in anticipation of Africa’s biggest musician of 2016.

Doctors have advised Wizkid to cancel all shows in December and January 2017 due to his ill health. He’s presently surrounded by close friends and family including his son, Boluwatife.
