Recent surge in COVID-19 cases has forced the Canadian government to impose stricter rules.
Nigerian music star, Ayodeji Balogun Ibrahim, popularly known as Wizkid, has postponed his Made In Lagos, Canada Tour due to Covid-19.
The Grammy Awards nominee made this known on Wednesday, 19th January 2022 via his Instagram handle. Wizkid stated that he will no longer be performing in Canada due to Covid-19 restrictions in the country.
“Due to the existing and developing public health restriction measures being introduced by the Canadian government, I will no longer be able to perform my Canadian shows in January 2022,” Starboy noted.
However, the ‘Essence’ crooner promised to reschedule the tour as soon as possible.
“I’m looking forward to returning as soon as possible,” he added.
The tour was originally scheduled to start in January 2021, but the surge in positive COVID-19 cases has forced the 2021 Apple Music African Artist of the Year award winner to postpone the tour.
