Wizkid Squashes Rumor He Was Set To Perform At FIFA World Cup

Wizkid has reacted to a rumor putting at the scene the World Cup Opening Ceremony. The tournament popped f with the host nation Russia trouncing the Saudi Arabian National Team in the opening match Group A. The Opening Ceremony didn't take into account one musical performance, but sadly it wasn't Wizkid, but rather soapy English pop singer Robbie Williams, known across the pond for his Y2K inspired mega hit "Millenium." Robbie's performance went f without a hitch, while Wizkid sat on his sheepskin sa awaiting the opening fixture his home nation, the Nigeria Super Eagles. 

A Twitter user with the presence mind to address the rumor, brought it to Wizkid's attention, posting: "Is it true that you will be performing at the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony," to which Wizkid replied, "Na fam, but goodluck to our boys." Although he won't be part the exhaustive digital and television coverage for the FIFA World Cup, the reigning Afrobeats kingpin is still backing his boys, the nationalistic sentiment never any stronger. In terms culpability, a few African website published the story without thinking twice. The FIFA governing body is somewhat out touch with Global musical trends, seeing as Will Smith made the cut as a honoree.

Nigera begin their conquest Group D on Saturday against the 20th ranked Croatia.
