Davido also brought out Mayorkun on stage as the duo performed his songs, Mama and "Cheche".

Festival organisers say they are "working on something special that won't disappoint" but no confirmation yet on what that is.

Before the announcement from Wireless, one fan tweeted: "Maybe I'm slow and missed something". Still, Khaled's cancellation left a sour taste for many in the crowd, as he posted photos of himself saying he was still on vacation.

Hours before climbing on stage, Davido had been spotted backstage wearing a red top with the inscription, "Long Live Olu", which is a tribute to his late friend, DJ Olu, who died mysteriously in 2017.

"Ain't he meant to be at Wireless today?"

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'. Why was my man in a swimming pool not doing soundcheck?

The BBC has reported that Drake's secret set had been planned prior to DJ Khaled's cancellation.

Another wrote: "LOL Wireless are hilarious". One of the most interesting situations surrounded DJ Khaled and whether or not he would actually show up.

DRAKE SURPRISED fans at Wireless Festival after hitting the stage at London's Finsbury Park. As well as Drae, Lil Uzi Vert Giggs and Rae Sremmurd also played on Sunday.

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