‘I WON’T PLAY A SUBSTANDARD EVENT’ — MR EAZI REVEALS WHY HE CANCELLED TRACE LIVE
Mr Eazi has opened up on why he cancelled his Trace Live concert billed to take place on Friday, November 23.
The Banku music singer recently released his ‘Lagos to London’ mixtape featuring Diplo, 2baba, Simi and Giggs.
He was billed to headline the fifth in the Trace Live series, which has featured the likes of Omawumi, Flavour, Adekunle Gold and Falz.
Explaining why he pulled out of the concert, Mr Eazi said he was “not confident of the delivery of the event”.
The singer said the organisers did not put together an event he was proud to be associated with.
Mr Eazi wrote on Twitter: “For the records I cancelled Trace Live because I was not confident of the delivery of the event! I have had a smooth well branded #LagosToLondon roll put in the UK, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, no way I was gonna have a wuru wuru event in my home country Nigeria!!!
“My band got into the country, we had two days of rehearsals and went to the venue for final rehearsals on time is 7pm but there was no staff of the organizers at the venue! None! The lights and sound engineers had not even received my tech rider!!!
The singer also complained that the concert organisers did not provide the set he requested.
He tweeted: “I met an empty stage apaz the set had been cancelled by the organisers!!! I will not play a substandard event for my core fans in LAGOS!! Mr Eazi is a Global Brand!!!!!
“I called Simi to come play with me at the event, we made plans for King promise from Ghana to attend, even commenced speaking with Burna to make sure we have some of the features on #LagosToLondon present at the event.”
