AllHipHop.com is reporting that hip-hop artist Rick Ross unexpectedly scrapped a high-profile performance in Nigeria. He was supposed to perform on Wednesday at the Cross River State Calabar Christmas Festival. The site says:

Although Rick Ross was forced to scrap several shows in October due to a pair of seizures, the rapper’s reps denied his health was the reason behind the latest cancellation.

Ross’ reps told AllHipHop.com that the Nigerian show has been cancelled due to “unfulfilled contractual obligations.”

“Rick was very excited to attend this event as it is the biggest festival in Nigeria and he is quite disappointed that he will not be performing,” a rep for Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com.

We hope that Ross is OK. The recent spate of health issues that have struck the hip-hop community should sound the alarm for Ross and others to take control of their health. It is as important as their art, to say the least.
