Exclusive: Rick Ross Cancels Performance In Africa


(AllHipHop News) Superstar rapper Rick Ross has been forced to cancel a high-profile appearance in Nigeria, Africa.

Rick Ross was supposed to perform during the Cross River State Calabar Christmas Festival, on December 28.

Although Rick Ross was forced to scrap several shows in October due to a pair of seizures, the rapper’s reps denied his health was the reason behind the latest cancellation.

Ross’ reps told AllHipHop.com that the Nigerian show has been cancelled due to “unfulfilled contractual obligations.”

“Rick was very excited to attend this event as it is the biggest festival in Nigeria and he is quite disappointed that he will not be performing,” a rep for Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com.

The Cross Rivers State Christmas Festival is a 32-day event in Calabar, Nigeria and is the biggest “carinval” celebration in all of West Africa.

Other performers during the festival included Sean Kingston, Psquare, Banky W, Wizkid, OJB Jezreel, and Comedian Julius Agwu.
