Wizkid’s manager disassociates singer from Peter Obi ‘concert’


Mr Sunday Are, manager of pop star Wizkid has threatened legal action against those using the singer to promote a music concert for Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.

Posters claiming the entertainer will be performing at the concert in Abuja have circulated on social media.

The concert tagged ‘2023 ObiDatti Showdown Music Concert’ is advertised to hold on February, 18, at Eagle Square, Abuja.

Other artistes listed as performers at the event include Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, 2baba and Seun Kuti.

Actors, comedians, DJs as well as dancers are also expected to perform at the show.

Reacting to the listing of Wizkid among the artistes on the poster Sunday Are noted in a social media post on Friday, January 20 that the event was a scam and legal actions will be taken against those responsible.

He wrote “This is to inform the general public that this event is a scam, Wizkid and his management know nothing about this event and accordingly, he will not perform at the said event as claimed. So please beware of this poster and information put out from its organizers as Wizkid and his management will not be liable for any damages.

“Appropriate legal action is currently being explored against the persons responsible for creating and disseminating this false information.”

Apart from Wizkid, Sunday Are has also managed stars like J Martins, Omawumi, D’banj, Bracket, and Wande Coal.
