‘Starboy’ Wizkid might have had a good time at the HMV Apollo Theatre in London last night Monday, June 4, 2012 but faced a scare when his gold necklace he wore on stage got missing.
The EME act’s ‘chain’ was taken off him when he was performing very close to the multitude of fans who attended the highly publicised gig put together by baron’s World and CokoBar.
Reports say when Wizkid found out and raised the alarm, the show was temporarily stopped and EME boss Banky W with some of the organizers began to plead with the crowd to return the expensive jewelry.
And when no one was forthcoming with the missing item, UK rapper Tinie Tempah in a show of support refused to come on stage to perform.
We’re told it was a sad Wizkid that later left the concert in Tinie Tempah’s car.
However, a few hours later Cokobar reps called to tell the popstar the necklace had been found.
‘Thanks to the #Beautiful girls that brought back the chain. @wizkidayo was NOT Robbed !!!’, @Cokobar tweeted minutes after the recovery.
Wizkid happily retweeted. ‘Big big shoutout to @Cokobar nd the whole crew!..God bless u all big time!!!..#TeamUk!’.
The show which has received mixed reviews featured the likes of Skales, Banky W, Wande Coal, Tinie Tempah and 2Kriss.
