Drake Arrives As Surprise Replacement For DJ Khaled At Wireless Music Festival

However, Wireless tweeted again late on Sunday night, after the festival had finished, saying that due to schedule filming his U.S. reality music competition show "DJ Khaled was not able to commit to perform" at the festival. In his place, festival organizers say they are "working on something special that won't disappoint".

Before the announcement was made early on Sunday (Jul 8), the producer took to social media and posted a shot of himself and his young son Asahd in a swimming pool on Saturday.

But all was forgiven when Khaled's collaborator Drake stepped onto the stage as the festival's surprise headlining performer. "Swipe to left for more vibes".

The DJ's decision to pull out of performing is said to be down to get there, as Wireless tweeted he was caught up with 'travel issues'.

One wrote: "Drake is at #wireless... was a good substitution still".

The mere fact that he's actually at Wireless will have many fans hyped and rightly so after a brilliantly energetic show. Watch video footage of Drake's Wireless Festival performance below.

Drake joined Sunday night performers including rappers Giggs and Rick Ross, and hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

In 2017, Wizkid was the only Nigerian who featured at the Wireless Festival.

The 22-year-old was charged with knife possession last month and is due to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on July 20.
