Following the cancellation of most of his end of the year show, which saw Wizkid apologizing to all his Nigerian and Ugandan fans alike, an Ugandan court has however  issued a warrant of arrest to Wizkid.

The ‘Babanla’ crooner, was accused of obtaining money by false pretense, cheating and, conspiracy to defraud, designed by Face TV lawyers of Muwema Co. Advocates and Solicitors.
According to, the filed affidavits by Face TV lawyers of Muwema Co. Advocates and Solicitors, revealed that  between August 29th and November 29th 2016, Face TV paid a total performance fee of USD60,000, a brokerage fee of USD5,000 and USD3,000 to Sunday Are, Wizkid’s manager. This was for the days they were to spend in Uganda.

Upon accepting the deal, the organizers is said to have incurred substantial expenses in bookings and re-bookings of flights, hotel, venue, advertisements and promotions for the concert which amounted to a whooping USD300, 000. while over 25,000 people were said to have also purchased their tickets in anticipation of the concert.

Wizkid,  was billed to perform on December 3rd, at Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala, but did not show up.
The Magistrate has now  ordered police to produce Wizkid and his manager in the Kampala Court before or on January 16th 2017. On all counts, the pair faces  three years jail term each.
