Wizkid postpones music tour amid election controversy

Nigerian music star, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has announced the postponement of his More Love, Less Ego album tour.

He made the announcement through his Twitter page on Thursday, March 2nd, 2023 and said it was due to logistical challenges.

The North American music tour was scheduled to start March 3 in Houston, Texas, United States.

Wizkid said the new date for the concert which has been moved to Fall will be communicated to fans and those who have already bought tickets would still be allowed to use it.

His announcement comes amid controversy surrounding the results announced for the 2023 presidential election which was marred by voter suppresion, violence and widespread allegation of rigging.

Wiz wrote; “Due to unforeseen logistical circumstances the Wizkid – More Love, Less Ego Tour has been postponed to Fall 2023.

All tickets purchased for the originally scheduled shows will be honored on the new dates at the respective venues. Stay tuned for more information. Love, Wiz.”

CorrectNG reported earlier that the Afrobeats giant, Wizkid announced that he will embark on a tour with his counterpart, Davido.

The Grammy winner took to his social media page to make the announcement as he promised to make it happen after More Love, Less Ego album tour.

Wizkid asked fans to save some money to buy the tickets because he does not want to hear stories about why they could not show up.

He shared a photo of himself and wrote; “After MLLE tour! Davido and I going on tour! Save your coins!! I no wan hear pim!!”

Though he did not disclose a date, the news made fans very excited, and they could not contain their eagerness to see the heavyweights perform together after years.

However, it may not happen until the end of the year or in 2024 because Davido had postoned his A.W.A.Y Festival and announced in November 2022 that he will not have any show until November 2023.

The announcement from his management came after the untimely death of his 3-year-old son, Ifeanyi Adeleke Jnr and he postponed.

The statement read; “We have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone A.W.A.Y Festival until Saturday, November 18, 2023. To all ticket buyers, your tickets will be honored for the 2023 date. We understand that you must be disappointed but we promise to come back with a bigger and better show. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you all in the near future.”
