Only days after Lil Wayne was announced to perform at Alabama State University, the college has issued a release stating that the rapper will not be appearing tonight.
In a press release on Tuesday evening, Alabama State University said it was the victim of fraud after falsely booking Lil Wayne through a third party promoter. The rapper was intended to be the headliner for the school’s annual Homecoming concert tonight.
Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, was the first to address the falsity of the concert through a post on the rapper’s Facebook page on Tuesday. Bryant said he was in contact with Alabama State University and aims to help with the college’s investigation of the incident however he can.
“”It saddens me to say but this concert is fraudulent,” said Bryant in the post. “Wayne was never booked for this show. Graduating from an HBCU myself I hate that one of ours schools was victimized. Fake promoters are the lowest of people on this earth because they are damaging the integrity of artist and most important hurting the fans who are expecting to see their favorite artist.” read more
