According to TMZ.com, Wale was hired by Upfront and Personal Global. The promoters paid Wale $25,000 in two installments of $12,500 wired to his account. However, the day of the show the promoters couldn't reach the rapper and he indeed never ending up performing. They claim they tried to reach out to Wale's team for a refund and never heard back from them either.
