The highly anticipated America tour by leading R&B act, Banky W has suffered a great setback. Two of the headlined acts, Wizkid, who recently released his debut album and Skales were denied American visas at the United States Embassy in Nigeria. The consequent of such action has thrown confusions into the camp of the organizers.
The tour is intended to kick off on June 24 in Lincoln Theatre at Washington DC and the fans and lovers of the leading showbiz acts we learnt has been purchasing tickets to be part of the concert.
The organizers are yet to make any official statement on the visa denial as they are still working round the clock to salvage the situation. All efforts to contact the local US promoters has failed. However, we noticed that EME acts were ommitted from radio and web promos of the African Experience scheduled for the July 4th weekend, by leading African promoters in Atlanta, USA.
Other cities and their venues after Washington is the Variety Playhouse Theatre in Atlanta on July 2nd, IL Auditorium at Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago on July 9, TX AYVA Center in Houston on July 15, NY Grand Ballroom in New York on July 16 and CA California Theatre in California on July 23.
The tour will stop exclusively at premiere venues and each performance will be accompanied by a live band and dancers to provide an unrivalled show for fans.
The tour will also showcase some of the top upcoming artistes and honour notable individuals and organizations in the community with awards & scholarships. Each show will be followed by an after party presented by the promoter(s) in each city and hosted by the EME’s artiste and invited guests.
In addition to the incredible stage performance, all attendees who purchase advance tickets to any of the Tours show dates is meant to receive a copy of Wizkid’s debut album, Superstar which was recently released.
After dishing out popular hits like Holla At Your Boy, Don’t Dull and Tease Me, Wizkid has been building a loyal fan base which has so far transcends his age. He is now a darling of all music lovers.
