2023 received great new musicians into the Kpop scene, and it wasn’t an exception when it came to ZEROBASEONE, who already captivated thousands of fans worldwide. The members of the boyband have been highly discussed on Online forums, but one of them stood out for the wrong reasons.
ZEROBASEONE’s Ricky became the talk of the town due to his visa issues that, ultimately, made him miss the opportunity of attending the 2023 Asia Artists Awards, despite the fact that the rest of the members will be there.
On December 11, WAKEONE Entertainment reported that Ricky will, unfortunately, be unable to participate in the 2023 Asia Artist Awards in the Philippines, where ZEROBASEONE is set to perform on December 14 due to issues with his passport and visa.
The short statement was released explaining they tried to reach an agreement to facilitate Ricky’s participation with the rest of the members of ZEROBASEONE, but it was conclusively determined he could not depart. This indicates the members had to make their performance during the awards without Ricky. They also emphasize they are making their best efforts to avoid this kind of situation in the future.
