Court orders Wizkid’s arrest (photo evidence) 

​An arrest warrant has been issued for Nigerian music star Wizkid for failing to honour a contract for a concert with a client.

Ugandan court says Wizkid should be arrested for missing a show in the country even after collecting performance fee

The arrest order was issued by a Buganda Road chief magistrates court.

The Ugandan reports that the order for the arrest of Wizkid, born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, was signed by presiding judge Moses Baligeya Mufumbiro.

The charges against Wizkid were obtaining money by false pretense, cheating and conspiracy to defraud.

The charges were brought against by lawyers of Muwema co advocates and solicitors who are counsel to a company called Face TV which is accusing Wizkid of receiving $60,000 (around N27million) as performance fee for a show that he never showed up for.
