Nigerians Are Really Annoyed With Wizkid For Missing His Coachella Performance

A couple of months ago, we reported that Wizkid will be performing at Coachella alongside the likes of Beyoncé, the Weeknd, SZA, Eminem, Cardi B, Jidenna, Daniel Caesar and many more. Everyone was super excited for this, however, it turns out our Starboy couldn’t make his performance due to visa issues. 

This is not the first time Wizkid’s missed an international show — in 2016 he was unable to perform at Wireless for the same reason. Given this, one would think that he’d have been a bit more prepared to perform at one of the biggest music festivals in the world.

If Wizkid had made it to Coachella, it would have been a massive deal for Nigeria, as it would have served as national pride for us (we could do with some good news over here) as well as pushed the African music scene to the world even further. Fans are really upset with him for this and have taken to Twitter to troll him.

We don’t know the exact details about his visa issues, and as Nigerians, we know the visa struggle, however, missing Coachella is not a good look at all. We really wish more careful measures had been taken.

We’re sure Wizkid is not happy about this either, and hopefully, he gets to redeem himself next weekend (if he ever makes it). There won’t be a live stream of next weekend’s performances like there was this weekend, but we’re sure we’ll find a way to see/hear what he does.

Here are some Twitter reactions to Wizkid missing Coachella:
