London: Colombian singer Shakira has denied that she will stage a performance for Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov`s 35th birthday.

A spokesman for the politician had recently announced that Kadyrov would be celebrating his birthday next month with a glitzy party, including performances by Shakira and violinist Vanessa Mae.

But the ‘Hips Don`t Lie’ hitmaker has quashed the news through her Twitter account, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"Contrary to any misreporting, Shakira is not performing nor was she ever booked to perform a gig for the Chechen President or Government," tweeted a representative on behalf of Shakira.
