American University of Nigeria (AUN) located in Yola, a northern city in Nigeria have released a statement to debunk rumors Wizkid refused to honour an agreement with the university because of its location.
In a statement released by the Sesugh Annger, the Assistant Director, Office of Student Activities and Involvement of the University, a dialogue ensured between them and Wizkid but there was no agreement because of what they describe as ‘scheduling conflict’.
The statement in full below
We would like to clear the air on the issue about Wizkid performing at AUN. We have been in negotiations with his management about him performing at our annual Homecoming concert. However due to a scheduling conflict he will not be able to make it at that time. We want to make it clear that contrary to what has been going round on the Internet this event has not happened yet, neither have we paid any money to Wizkid or his representatives. Any information saying he reneged on our agreement is wrong as we are still in the process of selecting an alternative date.
Many students were disappointed he could not make Homecoming and one person in expressing their disappointment made statements, which were picked up by social media sites, that are inaccurate and do not reflect our position on this issue. AUN does not have any quarrel with Wiz Kid and we look forward to welcoming him on our campus at a future date.
