Alabama State University has canceled their upcoming homecoming student concert after learning the promoter they were working with allegedly did not book Lil Wayne as promised.
The University had been expecting Lil Wayne to headline the homecoming concert on Nov. 18th but learned that they appear to have been scammed.
“The University was victimized by individuals who presented themselves as promoters. We have been in contact with a representative from Young Money, who states that “Wayne was never booked for this show.” To protect the interests of the University and our students, the University will vigorously investigate and pursue litigation as appropriate.
“There are no performers; therefore, there is no concert for Wednesday, November 18, 2015. The University and the Student Government Association acted in good faith,” a spokesperson for the school said in a post on their website.
Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant in a post on Wayne’s official Facebook page said:
“It saddens me to say but this concert is fraudulent. 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. I’m now in contact with Alabama State University and will do everything in my power to work with them to persecute whoever was behind this. It’s not fair to the college students.”
