Following reports making the rounds that Wizkid failed to honour an N8.9 million agreement for a concert that was meant to hold at the American University of Nigeria, Adamawa State, the Assistant Director,
Office of Student Activities and Involvement of the institution, Sesugh Annger has released a statement describing the reports as untrue while stating that the event has not happened yet.
In the statement which was obtained by 360Nobs, Annger added that neither Wizkid or his representatives have been paid any money.
Read the full statement below:
We would like to clear the air on the issue about Wizkid performing at AUN. We have been in negotiations with his management about him performing at our annual Homecoming concert. However due to a scheduling conflict he will not be able to make it at that time. We want to make it clear that contrary to what has been going round on the Internet this event has not happened yet, neither have we paid any money to Wizkid or his representatives. Any information saying he reneged on our agreement is wrong as we are still in the process of selecting an alternative date.
Many students were disappointed he could not make Homecoming and one person in expressing their disappointment made statements, which were picked up by social media sites, that are inaccurate and do not reflect our position on this issue. AUN does not have any quarrel with Wiz Kid and we look forward to welcoming him on our campus at a future date.
