Fans in Oakland California have expressed their disappointment over the sudden cancellation of Wizkid’s concert that was set to hold on August 17, alongside his tour of North America.

Four days to the concert, EME boss, Banky W, announced the cancellation on Twitter, posting “Hey folks… The Cali and Canada  tour have unfortunately been canceled. Due to circumstances way beyond anyone’s control.”

Explaining the sudden cancellation, Banky posted that “Truthfully it takes a lot to put on a tour. A million & one factors go into it. Along the way, sadly, sometimes, inevitably, things go wrong. And when it’s out of your control, there’s not much you can do about it at that point but learn lessons & do better next time… Truth be told, we take a pay cut while attempting something like this. A serious one. But that’s okay cuz of the love the fans have shown us. And the love we have for them in return.”

One of the organizers of the tour and the head promoter, Royal Entertainment, Azazel Nobel, subsequently expressed his displeasure with the cancellation and responded with a post on the social media platform.

“Man how one label can just destroy concerts in Cali for a long time to come.. Nobody will believe any promoter doing a concert for a while. Oh so it’s out of Control when it comes to California and Canada but when it comes to DC/ATL/Chicago control full ground. Man we got played. Lemme tell u what pisses me off bout this..they told us they wanted a thousand ppl in the buildin 4 the concert” Nobel posted.

“That’s why we were promoting like rapture was bout to come lol.. I’m not sure there are even a 1000k Africans with Visas in Cali. So after all that promo dem wan leave us with “somethinghugecameup”… Cancel all your tours and leave.. Cancel EVERYTHING!! Shey something came up? hit up ATL/CHICAGO/DC tell em the same thing” he vented.

EME boss however assured fans that their money will be refunded 100 per cent, posting that “so our sincere deepest apologies go to the fans in Cali & Canada, who wanted to be at the shows.” “You will get refunded 100% for your tickets.”

The tour was put together by Royal Entertainment, DJ Slim and EME. The tour was meant to  also feature Wizkid’s label mate Skales and an affiliate Rotimi.
