The US tour which was disseminated in July, was scheduled to have Wizkid performing in US cities from September 10 till October 16, the US tour planned by Nigerian musician, Wizkid may be in jeopardy after at least 10 of his crew members are currently facing visa issues.
Reportedly Wizkid’s crew members including his personal stylist and bodyguard are still down in Lagos over their inability to secure a date for an interview at the US Embassy.
“Look at how US Embassy is messing Nigerians up, To get appointment is now up to you able to settle guys up to N500,000 per person, Some N1million depends on how desperate you are,” the popular singer states.
“It is rather unfortunate having gone all the way with so many expenditures involved just to appeal for a reasonable closer date for visa appointments in the US Consulate but all to no avail, for a certain number of well-respected citizens of Nigeria who happen to be the most integral crew to the star musician, Ayodeji Balogun, known as Wizkid.
“Even after being fully aware of the commencement of his Made in Lagos tour, slated for 10th September to 17th of October 2021;
His tour which commenced on the 10th of September 2021 has depicted a rather low performance so far as he is unable to fully function without his full team managing stage production.
“His personal stylist is still here in Nigeria, Close bodyguard is here, Saxophonist is here and others. So far, his performance has dropped. It’s so sad.”
This is rather heartbreaking and a case of serving medicine after death. Which leaves us contemplating why it costs an arm, a leg and even a foot just for Nigerians to obtain reasonable visa appointments dates, while the reverse is the case for foreigners as the majority get to have their visas upon arrival and the case is closed
