AllHipHop Staff

Wizkid missed a huge weekend, all because of issues at the border.

(AllHipHop News) Drake's "One Dance" collaborator Wizkid was forced to scrap his Saturday set at Coachella due to visa issues.

The Nigerian musician alerted fans to the problems hours before his mid-afternoon set time, revealing that some members of his band hadn't been able to get into the U.S. on time.

"Band had some visa issues... I’m upset bt See y'all next week (sic)," he tweeted, adding: "Next weeknd! Bring ur flags!!"

Festival bosses also released a statement about Wizkid's no-show, writing: "We are sorry to announce that Wizkid is unable to make it into the country to join us this weekend but will be performing next weekend."

He’s not the first international Coachella act to bail due to visa problems - French rappers PNL missed the first weekend of the festival last year, while the late Amy Winehouse had to cancel her 2009 Coachella performance because she couldn’t get a work visa on time.
