Despite tweeting about the concert hours before it started, the musician, real name Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, who was scheduled to play at the Accra Sports Stadium alongside R2Bees, King Promise, and other Ghanaian artists, failed to show up.

He gave an explanation for why he skipped the headline performance of #WizkidLiveAccra at the Accra Sports Stadium in a social media post late on Sunday.

But multiple media reports in Ivory Coast including from the French language LSI Africa portal confirmed the Abidjan incident in a tweet.

“Expected in Accra on Saturday for a concert, the Nigerian artiste @wizkidayo never showed up. Sunday in Abidjan, he was conspicuously absent from another show, but he was seen tonight in Cotonou, Benin, where he landed on a private jet shortly before midnight,” LSI Africa tweeted late Sunday.

Meanwhile photos of Wizkid, King Promise and others aboard a private jet has been shared widely on social media. There is also a clip of his purported performance to a huge crowd in the Beninoise capital also gaining traction on social media.
