The management of Nigerian music superstar, Wizkid, have reacted to claims that the singer will perform at a campaign concert for the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi.
An alleged report had made rounds that the “Ojuelegba” hitmaker is set to preform at Peter Obi’s presidential campaign in Eagle Square, Abuja, a week to the presidential election slated for February 25, 2023.
A flyer shared online shows a picture of the singer, alongside Peter Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, with a bold writeup “2023 OBIDATTI SHOWDOWN MUSIC CONCERT”.
Reacting to the alleged show, Wizkid’s manager, Sunday Are, has in a post shared on his Instagram page dissociated himself and the singer from the show, stating that it’s a scam.
He further disclosed that he is currently exploring legal actions to take against the originators of the fake report.
Sharing a photo of the flyer with “fake news” plastered on it, Sunday Aare wrote,
“This is to inform the general public that this event led by @avotujohnson1st is a scam!!! Wizkid and his management know nothing about this event and accordingly, he will not perform at the said event as claimed, so please beware of this poster and information put out from its organizers as Wizkid and his management will not be liable for any damages. Appropriate legal action is currently being explored against the persons responsible for creating and disseminating this false information. @wizkidayo @wizkidnews”
