Music Star, Wizkid reacts to his alleged arrest for smoking weed in a Kenyan Hotel
Wizkid reacts to reports making the rounds claim that he was arrested in Nairobi, Kenya over the weekend, for smoking ‘weed’…….
A Kenyan publication, the Standard Digital News, which spearheaded the news claimed Wizkid who was visiting to shoot a video and also perform at a concert, was arrested at Nairobi Crown Plaza, a non-smoking hotel, where he was lodged.
“He was arrested when he was about checking out of the hotel after it was discovered he had smoked an illegal substance- weed. The hotel manager questioned him about the illegal act, which made them have a hot argument, before the hotel security men called in the police. On their arrival at the scene, the police arrested Wizkid with handcuffs and led him to the Capital Hill Police Station. Even though he had paid the Sh50, 000 fine the hotel charges for breaking their rules, he was still taken away, before he finally sorted himself out. Wizkid was due to leave for Lagos at around 3pm and was forced to cancel the flight due to the drama” the online news portal reported.
Reacting to the report however, Wizkid via his manager Seun Jonathan in a telephone conversation with Ynaija said “Nothing of such happened. It is all rumour, rumors keep churning out everyday, it didn’t happen.”
Also, a source who was privileged to be on the alleged cancelled flight with Wizkid told Ynaija “I was on that same flight with him, he didn’t cancel any flight, it was only delayed. He was on that flight which left Nairobi at about 4pm.“
Commenting on the success of his show in Kenya, the super star tweeted “Was out last night..All i hear is Wizzy wizzy..lol !! Big up the Dj’s steady supporting me and my Team..God bless y’all abundantly….2 sick shows last night!!! I’m too tired but the hustle continues!! Young Don never sleeps.”
