King Promise has caused more harm to some Ghanaians on social media for supporting Wixkid failing fans for not showing up on (WizkidLiveAccra) where they were billed to perform over the weekend.
In a statement on his Twitter handle, the artiste said performing for his fans was his topmost priority and that he did not take their love and support for granted.
In what seemed like his reason for not showing up on the night, he said: “What I will never do is to compromise your safety no matter how much I’m paid for a show.
“I apologise for last night’s mishap. I PROMISE to make it up to you really soon,” the statement read in part.
A large portion of the show went ahead despite the no-show by King Promise and other artistes billed to perform. Still, patrons who waited till the wee hours of Sunday morning were captured bitterly complaining especially about Wizkid’s unexplained absence.
The show and the failure of especially the headline act, Nigerian afrobeat musician Wizkid, to attend drew lots of criticism on social media with the organizers stating that Wizkid had breached his contract.
The artiste issued a statement later apologizing for the no-show, explaining that some production and security issues prevented him from putting on the high-quality show that his fans deserve.
After Wizkid made an official statement on his socials, Ghana’s King Promise shared the statement with emojis that got the attention of some Ghanaians.

Others too believe King Promise should have condemned Wizkid act for it was not fair enough.
