Reports from Kenyan Newspaper, Standard Media state that Wizkid was arrested in Nairobi in his Plaza Crown Hotel room on Saturday afternoon. The arrest is said to be in connection with allegations that he was caught smoking illegal substances namely Marijuana.
They reported that Wizkid was caught smoking ‘weed’ inside the hotel in which smoking is prohibited. The hotel’s Front Officer asked him why he was smoking which led to a heated argument attracting security officers who ended up calling the police to arrest him.
Before police officers cuffed him and drove him to Capital Hill police station where he was quizzed, the hotel had already charged him with Sh50, 000 smoking penalty, which he paid through his credit card. Kenya’s Victoria Kimani which the reports referred to as ‘his newly found flame’ supposedly bailed him. Victoria had been with the singer at the hotel the previous day. Wizkid was due to leave for Lagos at around 3pm and was forced to cancel the flight due to the drama.
