Can not write/modify wiki for redirected artists

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Unexpected error when trying to edit a redirecting artist

There are a lot of other posts about wrong redirects, but I wanted to have this particular one distinct on it's own:
This artist: "Ludicrous" gets automatic redirected to "Ludacris".

I wanted to add some wiki to Ludicrous, using the "noredirect" :
https://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Ludicrous/+wiki/edit
but whatever I write, I cannot save anything.
And I am pretty sure this is due to that "noredirect".

Is there anything that can be done ?

What is even more puzzling is that Ludicrous already has 3 profile images:
https://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Ludicrous/+images
And the images are pretty old (the oldest is from 2009).
So the decision to re-direct them to Ludacris is rather new, probably after the switch to this new interface.

Really, isn't there anything to do about this redirect ?

Besides me hating to have my Ludicrous scrobbles being displayed as for Ludacris (I really do not like rap music, and I don't want any such artist in my library...), I want to add some info (wiki) for this band and it seems that this redirect do not allow me to do it.

This is a known issue (I'm trying to find the original thread) - I'm afraid wikis for noredirect pages can't be edited at this time. 

Regarding Ludicrous, I've added this to our list of incorrect redirects to fix.

Apparently none.
I tried again to add wiki info to the band in the initial post (Ludicrous -- still redirected to the wrong name :( ) and I only get an error message: 
"There was an unexpected error. Try again?"

Here's my topic about the same problem. Mods, could you please merge these two topics?

I saw that Noah Cyrus' bio has reappeared on her albums, but her main profile is blank.
