DaBaby performs for Charlotte fans via FaceTime after being forced to cancel show following jet issues

DaBaby had to cancel his hometown show due to jet issues, but fans still got their money’s worth.

  /  12.07.2019

DaBaby is all about showing love to his fans.

Thursday (Dec.5) night, he was set to hit the stage in his hometown of Charlotte, to perform at Power 98 FM’s Winter Block Party with other artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Fetty Wap, and Layton Greene. Unfortunately, he could not make it to his show because he was having issues with his jet.

“Due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to make it to my show in my OWN city last night,” he said. “Paid extra for a jet just to make sure this type of shit wouldn’t happen. Although Baby a firm believer in everything happening for a reason, I can’t get over the fact that I let my fans (FAMILY) down by not being able to make it.”

But, he didn’t let his jet issues stop him. The technical team at the venue found a way to broadcast DaBaby, live on a jumbo screen, during what would have been his set at the show. After explaining to the fans about his absence via Facetime, he went on to perform his hit songs “Bop” and “Suge.” DaBaby told everyone who had tickets to the show to keep them for entry into free makeup show at a later date.

“For the lessons taught through these unfortunate circumstances I’m forever grateful. This type of shit don’t happen where we from, they usually would’ve tore that bitch down.” He continued, “But instead y’all helped me write another page in the history book last night. Preciate y’all for understanding.”

DaBaby is currently touring the country for his Kirk tour. He was recently featured on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. The rapper is also nominated for two Grammy awards for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. You can also catch him alongside J. Lo tomorrow (Dec. 7) on Saturday Night Live.

Due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to make it my show in my OWN. city last night🤦🏾‍♂️ Paid extra for a jet just to make sure this type of shit wouldn’t happen. Although Baby a firm believer in everything happening for a reason I can’t get over the fact that I let my fans(FAMILY) down by not being able to make it. Thanks to my fast moving team and a few solid supporters at @power98fm we figured out a way to broadcast me live on the jumbo screen at the concert on a FaceTime call. #BDBENT Super Star @stunna4vegas held it down and explained to the audience what was goin on. Soon as they heard my voice and saw my face on the screen over a FaceTime call the whole arena turnt up! I just witnessed myself rock a coliseum through a FaceTime call🔥 No matter how it come off anybody that know me personally can tell you I’m one of the most humble people you could meet, especially being in the position I’m in and why I went through to get here. But last night I was humbled even more. God gave me the opportunity to show my city I’m NOT perfect. While at the same time showing me that I don’t gotta be perfect at all for my city to love and support me🖤 For the lessons taught through these unfortunate circumstances I’m forever grateful 🙏🏾 This type of shit don’t happen where we from, they usually would’ve tore that bitch down. But instead y’all helped me write another page in the history book last night. Preciate y’all for understanding🙏🏾 From, Baby. #KeepYaTickets #FREEconcertOTW 👀 #CHARLOTTE 🖤 Moments captured by: @ricodidit & @igot20onmybeat .
