Wizkid’s eagerly anticipated homecoming concert has been cancelled, after doctors warned the pop star to take a much needed rest.

The event was billed to take place at Eko Convention Centre on December 30, followed by another show at the New Afrika Shrine on January 1, 2017.

A statement posted on his official Twitter page read: “#TeamWizkid I’ve been on the road for two years touring and doing what I love without a break and now it’s all catching up on me.

“I hate this but my docors have advised me to cancel the rest of my dates for this year and January 2017.
