South Korean superstar Psy — the singer behind the worldwide hit Gangnam Style  — has denied he is coming to perform in Dubai next month.
The singer tweeted on Wednesday using his handle @psy_oppa: “to fans in Dubai there is some wrong information being reported . I will NOT be in Dubai March 28 but look forward to coming soon~!”
A music festival, My Music X, had announced at a press conference on Monday that Psy will perform at Atlantis The Palm on March 28 as part of a series of music events in the city over three days in the first My X Music festival.
Darrell Bell, the event founder, told tabloid! on Tuesday that he was in touch with Psy’s agent and that the singer would perform “all his hits ” during the show. Dancehall artist Sean Paul was also included on the line-up for that show.
In a statement on Thursday morning, My Music X said it was looking into the matter.
“My Music X is aware of a tweet from Korea this morning in relation to the appearance of Psy at our My Music X Festival next month. The My Music X team is currently making inquiries into the situation and will update the public as soon as the circumstances are clearer.”
Tickets for the event are due to go on sale in two weeks, according to the organisers.
