The promoter of the Tanzanian show Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, failed to perform at has shared his own version of what transpired.
Kizz Daniel was arrested by the Tanzanian police on Monday after he failed to perform on a show on Sunday, August 7, after being paid.
In an interview with Daddy Freeze, the show promoter who gave his name as Stephen Uwa, said Kizz Daniel refused to perform because the airline failed to bring his bag containing his gold chains and insisted he will not perform without wearing all his gold chains.
“He said the airline didn’t bring his bag that is why he cannot perform because his gold chain is not there and he had a gold chain on his neck. He wanted everything.”
Uwa said he spent nothing less than $300,000 on the show including $60,000 to Kizz Daniel as performance fee, however, the singer flopped everything. He said he was on his knees weeping and begging Kizz Daniel to perform but he refused.
“My company is new here. PaulO is the one I booked Kizz from. PaulO cried all night trying to beg this guy ‘Please go to this show’, he called in from America!
I paid this guy $60,000 to perform on this show . I went down on my knees. I was like ‘Bro, you are damaging me. I am trying to build my company here. You are going to damage me’. I begged this guy ‘Save my career, save me”.
“I was on the table with Kizz Daniel for like five hours begging him, kneeling for him”
Stephen said the whole venue was damaged as the angry fans destroyed some of the items brought in by the sponsors of the show.
The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission has however said that singer, Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe, popularly known as Kizz Daniel, has been released from police custody in Tanzania.
Reacting, NiDCOM, in a tweet, revealed that the singer was being held at Oyster Bay Police Station Civil Police in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
“We are presently engaging our Mission and see what can be done. We will keep the public posted with our investigation. Thank you,” the Commission added.
