In a surprising turn of events, Wizkid, one of Africa’s most celebrated artists, has canceled the majority of his ‘More Love Less Ego’ world tour dates. The tour, which was initially set to span across the US, Canada, and Europe, has seen a significant change in its schedule.
The anticipation for Wizkid’s tour was palpable, with fans eagerly awaiting the return of Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid. The tour had been postponed once before in March 2023 and was rescheduled for the fall of the same year. However, recent updates have confirmed that most of the concert dates have been canceled. This information was made available on Ticketmaster, a leading ticketing platform, where fans noticed the changes in the tour schedule.
The reasons behind the cancellations are deeply personal. Wizkid tragically lost his mother on August 18, 2023, an event that has undoubtedly impacted his decisions regarding the tour. While fans across the globe have expressed their understanding and support for the artist during this challenging time, the anticipation for his performances remains high.
Amidst the series of cancellations, there is a silver lining for fans in Texas. According to Ticketmaster, Wizkid is still set to perform on Friday, November 24, 2023, at the Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Texas, US. This date remains the only one open on the official website, making it a highly anticipated event.
In related news, earlier announcements had indicated that Wizkid’s ‘More Love, Less Ego’ tour would be postponed to Fall 2023 due to unforeseen circumstances. This was before the tragic loss of his mother. The artist had also previously announced a North American tour in support of his new album, “More Love, Less Ego,” which garnered significant attention.
As the music community rallies around Wizkid during this time, fans worldwide send their love and condolences. The remaining concert in Texas is expected to be an emotional and memorable event, celebrating not only Wizkid’s music but also the resilience of the human spirit.
