Ghanaian musician Barimah Sydney, who was scheduled to perform at the

inauguration of President General Mohammadu Buahri of Nigeria, could

not make it for the ceremony.

The 'Sikadie' hit singer was billed to join Nigerian musicians Iyanya,

Barimah Sydney, through a text message, told Hitz Entertainment News

are going to lift us to Abuja….so many issues to be cleared …I'm

meeting with a man who wants to help."

He added that, "Currently I'm hereand don't know what will happen
