However, a few days before the shows, a statement about the cancellation of the shows was released on social media.

Regrettably, as has happened numerous times with other artists from West Africa – through no fault of their own, visas were denied. All ticket holders will be fully refunded within 7 working days. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at the upcoming shows,” reads the press release.

People expressed their disappointment in the comment.

“Obviously so disappointing, but we look forward to putting on so many exciting shows throughout the year! Thanks to everyone for being so understanding. Onward & upward,” Kim Jayde wrote.
