Bizzle said he was "too African" to turn down the money.
Lethal Bizzle claims he was offered £80K to perform at Wireless Festival after Wiley cancelled hours before he was set to hit the stage at Finsbury Park.
The ‘I Win’ rapper was called in last minute after festival organisers let fans know that Wiley would no longer be performing.

“Due to delays with his travel plans, Wiley is unable to perform at Wireless today,” they tweeted.
Shortly afterwards, Lethal Bizzle took to Snapchat claiming he had been asked to perform at this year’s event in Wiley’s place – with just one hour to go before he was set to hit the stage.
He then claimed he demanded £80K for his services.
In the video he said: "They said can you get to Wireless in like an hour. I was like what’s the fee though, what’s the fee.
"They were like boy, I could give you 40 racks.
"I was like boy, when it’s all last minute.com double that figure and a man can do it."
Bizzle appeared to get what he was asking for, as he then said: "So obviously man’s on way to Wireless."
Lethal Bizzle since performed hit set at the London festival, with Wiley yet to comment on the situation.
