US rapper Wale no longer coming to Nigeria, releases statement

US/Nigerian rapper Wale was supposed to be in Nigeria today for Ice Prince Zamani's FOZ album launch but he just released a statement via his record label Maybach Music saying that he's not able to make the trip due to logistic reasons. He says it's not Ice Prince's fault. Statement below..

 
But UK rapper Chipmunk is in town. See his pics in Nigeria after the cut...

This is what you get wen inferiority complex controls u. Other Nigerian artistes shd learn from dis. In addition, I think Wale was just used for hype for more ticket sales

I had it at d back of ma mind that things might turn out this way. There's a strong juju in Yoruba land that chased the brother away and doesn't want him to return.
Or maybe he's got intelligence report that his kindred made preparations to hold him back in his fatherland as soon as he steps in.

free show and make him buy him own ticket again? lolz.... ice prince spend this money nw...

It's obvious that wale has something else he wants to do. Even the way he's sayin it's not iceprince n choc city's fault, it sounds so diplomatic. Anyways na dem knw buh my advice to ice block is he shldnt start what he can't finish.

I believe him when he says the ticket was not paid for. Nigerians and always doing manage manage. He is a big star, this is not a benefits concert or something. He does not and should not come here without a paid ticket. That is how he will come and have no hotel accommodation. Abeg, he is used to things being done right and y'all know Nigeria equals disorganization (it is not a curse, it is just what it is).

Anonymous said...

How can someone get to the airport before realising the flight hasn't been paid for? Hmmmm, first time I'm hearing this. I'm sure iceprince paid wale for this promotion. Yeye

xoxoxoxoxoxoxo said...

Some of u are very big fools oooohhhhh , oya as wale is nigerian/american what's now in it ? Should he kill him self 2 please u people ?????? Some of u don't even think @ all , so its now its fault that his ticket wasn't taken care of ? Was he supposed 2 use his money to pay for d flight ? When its not like he knows y'all on a first name basis , mscchheewww , the show might be the only thing bringing him 2 naija @ all but as we ( nigerians ) 2 dey fuck up , d guy no show . Dis is a perfect example of what goes in the govt , contracts would be awarded but we no go see any improvement(s) .... & now some idiots are saying if wale really wanted 2 come that he would have paid for his flight with his own money , u dey mad ? If u really want good roads in Nigeria , then why don't u remove 4rm ur pockets to construct good roads .... Rme ... I'm so disgusted

So does that mean they hadn't even payed performance fees.???

Cuz for you to even get to the airport your performance fees would ve been payed

Anonymous said...

Why are you insulting him? Why should he pay for a ticket last minute if they've told him his ticket will be paid for? As if any of you would do it. Mtchew. At least he released a statement.

My thoughts exactly... He was just used to hype the show. All na wash, publicity stunts. Hiss,

Adedayo Alao said...

I wonder how many Nigerians know chip, or any of his songs sef....... Na Wale guys be wan see.

Don't be an illiterate, is he supposed to pay for the flight himself?
