Lil Wayne vows to never setting foot in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia again
For the last couple of months, Saudi Arabia's entertainment scene has been blasting with well-known names in the music industry take the stage to perform to sold-out crowds.
On Saturday, Lil Wayne, Tyga, and Future took the stage at the Diriyah Music Festival as part of the country's Ad Diriyah season. But it didn't go as smooth as expected as Lil Wayne got into a bit of a hiccup following his performance.
Wayne who in no doubt was eleted to perform twitted "see you soon Riyadh!!" But in a matter of hours it turned to “never going to Riyadh again" real quick. The rapper has since deleted the latter tweet, which many are speculating came about after he, his manager, or both ran into drug-related troubles post-concert. It Is alleged that Weezy tried to smoke weed at the venue while its completely illegal.
One of the officials even tweeted back to Weezy, saying he should have known about the drug laws ahead of time and been more careful. “I’m sure they have informed you, drugs are not allowed here. But you though we are in desert, who will know,” he said.
