Jidenna exits The Age of Pleasure Tour

Jidenna took to social media to apologetically announce his exit from Janelle Monáes The Age of Pleasure Tour to focus on his well-being.

In August, Jidenna excitedly took to Instagram to announce he had an offer he couldn’t refuse and that he would be joining Janelle on tour.

But, after completing a few dates of the tour, Jidenna realized it was too much for him.

In a statement released via Instagram, the Grammy-nominated artist, and actor, whose real name is Jidenna Mobisson, said, “I’ve experienced a tremendous amount of losses this year and I am tired. My spirit is heavy. My heart is constantly beating with anxiety.”

“Under these circumstances, I’ve been unable to deliver the A1 show that I imagined for you.” 

Jidenna apologized writing, “I know that I’ve let you down more Ethan once this year with tour cancellations.”

But, the 38-year-old “Classic Man” singer said that he “cannot betray what my spirit is telling me.”

“Please forgive me as I work through my s**t,” he added.

Before the rumor mill begins churning, Jidenna explicitly stated his decision to leave the tour has nothing to do with the other artists. 

“I am making this call so I can find some peace of mind.”

In closing, Jidenna noted:

I’m not on the ledge.

I’m not on drugs. 

I’m not bankrupt.

I’m just human.
