Can you remember the EME USA Tour that was cancelled last year? Well, a similar scenario has played out again. Wizkid's concert which was scheduled for Friday, August 17, 2012, was cancelled at the very last minute. Fans in Canada and California have expressed anger despite Banky W's statement of "Make Una No Vex Abeg".
Banky W twitted: ‘Hey folks… The Cali and Canada stops on the tour have unfortunately been cancelled. Due to circumstances way beyond anyone’s control’.
He also explained further: ‘Truthfully it takes a lot to put on a tour. A million & one factors go into it. Along the way, sadly, sometimes, inevitably, things go wrong. And when it’s out of your control, There’s not much you can do about it at that point but learn lessons & do better next time.. Truth be told, we take a pay cut while attempting something like this. A serious one. But that’s okay cuz of the love the fans have shown us. And the love we have for them in return‘.
Of all the grammar spoken, Royal Entertainment’s head promoter Azazel Noble, no just get joy for the matter....aspa being part of the promoters.
He replied: ‘N***z think releasing some bull***t press release absolves them of all guilt.. U been dreaming bro..‘, Azazel Noble (@Echecrates) tweeted.
Noble continued..‘Man how one label can just destroy concerts in Cali for a long time to come.. Nobody will believe any promoter doing a concert for awhile. Oh so it’s out of Control when it comes to California and Canada but when it comes to DC/ATL/Chicago control full ground. Man we got played. Lemme tell u what pisses me off bout this shit..Dem niggaz told us they wanted a thousand ppl in the buildin 4 the concert. That’s why niggaz was promoting like rapture was bout to come lol.. I’m not sure there are even a 1000k africans with Visas in Cali. So after all that promo dem wan leave homies with “somethinghugecameup”..Oloriburuku tinzz. Cancel all your tours and leave.. Cancel EVERYTHING!! Shey something came up? hit up ATL/CHICAGO/DC tell em the same thing’.
The fans have been assured of a 100% refund according to what Banky W is saying: ‘So our sincere deepest apologies go to the fans in Cali & Canada, who wanted to be at the shows.. You will get refunded 100% for ur tickets‘.
Let’s see how the tour continues in other cities – Atlanta (August 18), Detroit City (August 25) and Chicago (September 1)
