The arrest order was issued by a Buganda Road chief magistrates court.

The Ugandan reports that the order for the arrest of Wizkid, born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, was signed by presiding judge Moses Baligeya Mufumbiro.

The charges against Wizkid were obtaining money by false pretense, cheating and conspiracy to defraud.

The charges were brought against by lawyers of Muwema co advocates and solicitors who are counsel to a company called Face TV which is accusing Wizkid of receiving $60,000 (around N27million) as performance fee for a show that he never showed up for.

Face TV said after Wizkid’s team agreed to the deal, the company incurred extra expenses for booking flights and other logistics to the tune of $300,000 and also sold tickets to 25,000 people for the concert that eventually did not take place.

The Ugandan reports that Wizkid was billed to perform at Lugogo Cricket Oval on December 3 but did not show up for the event.
