Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Wizkid was one of the top stars who stormed Puerto Rico for Afro Nation 22 concert. However, the Star Boy arrived very late at the event and kept the audience waiting for many hours.
After Wizkid’s eventual arrival, the singer took to the stage and apologised to the audience for his tardiness.
The music star acknowledged that he had kept them waiting for so long and then he joked about his pilot and jet being the cause of his delay.
