So @Wizkidayo wasn’t arrested in Kenya. Phew!!!!!!

Controversy seems to trail Wizkid as honey attracts bees.
The talented lad was in the news again recently and this
time, it was alleged that he was arrested in far away Kenya
for smoking Indian hemp.
Reports in a Kenyan newspaper, Standard Media , stated
that Wizkid was arrested in Nairobi in his Plaza Crown
Hotel room on Saturday afternoon. The arrest was said to
be in connection with allegations that he was caught
smoking Marijuana.
It reported that Wizkid was caught smok
ing inside the
hotel where smoking is prohibited. The hotel’s front officer
was reported to have queried Wizkid for smoking the
prohibited substance, which led to a heated argument that
reportedly attracted the hotel security officers who ended
up calling the police to arrest him.
According to the report, before police officers cuffed and
drove him to Capital Hill police station where he was
quizzed, the hotel had already charged him with Sh50, 000
smoking penalty, which he was said to have paid through
his credit card.
In the report, Kenyan singer Victoria Kimani, who was
described as ‘his newly found flame’ bailed him. She was
reported to have been with Wizkid at the hotel the
previous day. Because of the incident, the paper said
Wizkid who was due to leave for Lagos at around 3pm was
forced to cancel the flight.
Effort to contact the hotel by Saturday Beats was futile as
calls made to its telephone numbers could not connect.
However, Wizkid’s manager, Seun Johnson, said that
although the artiste was in Kenya for different shows, he
was not arrested for smoking marijuana.
“It is just a rumour that they are peddling online. He was in
Kenya at different days for different events. There is no
truth in what they posted online,” JohnsonSaidd.
