Earlier today (July 8th), it was announced that DJ Khaled has pulled out of his performance at the Wireless Festival in the United Kingdom due to "travel issues".

Festival organisers say they are "working on something special that won't disappoint" but no confirmation yet on what that is.

Davido also brought out Mayorkun on stage as the duo performed his songs, Mama and "Cheche".

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that DJ Kahed wasn't even in the United Kingdom and had posted pictures of himself loving life on social media.

As it turns out, Wireless Festival organizers actually knew for months that DJ Khaled wouldn't be able to make it overseas for his previously announced headlining set. "Swipe to left for more vibes". On Sunday, however, it became clear that DJ Khaled would not be playing live at Finsbury Park in north London.

The BBC has reported that Drake's secret set had been planned prior to DJ Khaled's cancellation.
