Bow Wow bows out of Nigerian gig

07 November 2013, 10:33

Abuja - Bow Wow missed his gig at the #Colourfulworldofmore concert in Nigeria after it was reported he suffered from food poisoning.

The international rap star was set to be the special guest and host of the #Colourfulworldofmore concert, but the rapper missed his flight after falling ill.

He took to Twitter on November 3, on the day of the concert, to write: "Food poisoning Been throwing up err damn 20 mins like the F*** my back and legs sore i hit the you know that aint help. I really puked then. I knew this was gone happen. All this flying 3 days no sleep clubbing working meetings etc.. It was time my body crashed on me. (sic)"

His appearance was meant to be a surprise on the night of the show. There was no prior announcement made by Guinness Nigeria or from the rapper-turned-TV host, so there were no disappointments on the night.

Bow Wow was replaced by stand-up comic Bovi who did an amazing job holding the crowd together, teasing and jumping off stage as he called on the acts of the night. He was later joined by Stephanie Coker and Soundcity's Pearl Candy.
