Toronto rapper, Drake has pulled out of performing at this weekend’s Wireless Festival at the last minute due to illness.
A statement on the official Wireless Festival account simply stated “ANNOUNCEMENT: @Drake has regrettably announced that he will be unable to appear at #Wireless this weekend,” with a link to the website.
The ‘hold on’ singer is thought to have taken ill and was forced to pull on strict orders from his doctors.
Drake posted a message to fans apologising for not making the event. The rapper said it broke his heart that he wouldn’t be performing during the concert.
“I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me,” he said.
“I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can’t wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.”
Drake was scheduled to headline the Wireless Festival in London and Birmingham this week but Kanye West will now be replacing him for the London performance.
