Last night reports went viral that Wizkid was arrested while in Kenya last week.

A local Kenyan publication called Standard Digital News reported that Wizkid was arrested in Nairobi on October 25th for smoking weed in his hotel! The report alleged that Victoria Kimani (who they claim is his Kenyan flame) had to bail him out by paying 50, 000 Kenyan Shillings!

See excerpts from the report after the jump

Wizkid was caught smoking ‘weed’ inside the hotel in which smoking is prohibited. The hotel’s Front Officer asked him why he was smoking before the two got into a heated argument attracting security officers who ended up calling the police to arrest him.

Before police officers cuffed him and drove him to Capital Hill police station where he was quizzed, the hotel had already charged him with Sh50, 000 smoking penalty, which he paid through his credit card.

Coming to his rescue was his newly found Kenyan flame Victoria Kimani, who followed him to the police station shortly after he had been arrested.

Victoria had been with the singer at the hotel the previous day. Wizkid was due to leave for Lagos at around 3pm and was forced to cancel the flight due to the drama.

WOW! I’m hoping this story is not true but what I know for sure is:

  • Wizzy & Victoria shot a video together in Kenya last week.
  • Kenya is two hours ahead of Lagos & Wizkid didn’t look like someone who had just been in jail a few hours before when he performed at a wedding in Lagos in Saturday night, the videos are all over instagram
  • Wizzy attended the Hennessy Artistry event on Sunday night with his main chick Tania Omotayo.
