On the 10th of December 2022, all roads led to the Accra Sports Stadium for #WizkidLiveAccra, Wizkid’s debut headline concert in Ghana. The evening was going to be one of happiness and exhilarating entertainment, but sadly, things didn’t go as planned.
Many Ghanaian music fans were eager to experience last night’s Wizkid headline if they hadn’t done so already. Wizkid is renowned for his ability to sell out huge arenas around the globe and give spectacular concerts. This compelled many Wizkid fans in Ghana to purchase tickets for 275ghc (Standard), 500ghc (VIP), and 3,000ghc (Golden Circle).
Well, for an event that seemed quite promising with a star-studded lineup, it ended up being one of Ghana’s biggest flops. A show that was supposed to begin at 4pm didn’t start as planned. The first performances started as late as 10:30 p.m., with technical issues right away. Faulty microphones, poor sound, poor coordination, and other issues were prevalent throughout the evening.
Fans were outraged because they had wasted their money on tickets, transportation, and their valuable time for a no show. The organizers of the program ‘The Live Hub’ issued a press statement on their various social media timelines a few hours ago to address the matter. Wizkid was accused of breaking the two parties’ contract, according to the statement. They also said that anyone who purchased event tickets might be eligible for a refund.
