US rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was arrested at Wireless Festival on Saturday, forcing organisers to cancel his performance.

The hip hop star, real name is Julius Dubose, was scheduled to perform at the London festival at Crystal Palace Park on Saturday afternoon, but had to be taken off the bill.

Organisers posted a message, saying: "There has been an incident involving A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. He is safe and we are working to change his set to sometime tomorrow."

The 25-year-old took to Instagram on Sunday morning to shed more light on the matter.

He wrote: "Smh sorry to everyone who came out to see me at Wireless, London police locked me up before I went on stage for something I was accused of 2 years ago.

He added: "I’m OK and I’ll try my best to make it up to you guys."

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: "On Saturday, 11 September, a 25-year-old man was arrested at the Wireless Festival in Crystal Palace Park.

"The arrest was made by Met Police officers at the request of Greater Manchester Police.

"The man was released on bail to attend a Greater Manchester police station at a later date."

Rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is known by fans for his hit singles Numbers, Look Back At It and Drowning.

He also released his debut album, The Bigger Artist in 2017.

The artist later gained his first number one on the Billboard 200 chart with his second studio album, Hoodie SZN, which was released in 2018.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie will soon be releasing his fourth album, A Boogie vs Artist, later on this year.

Due to Covid restrictions, Wireless took place in September for the first time. The event usually takes place in July.

The gig was also held at Crystal Palace Park in south London for the first time too. Previously the festival had taken place in London's Finsbury Park, Hyde Park and the Olympic Park.
