Nigerian Singer, Kizz Daniel has tendered an unreserved apology to Tanzanians and his fans at large for failing to turn up at his concert in Tanzania, which resulted in his arrest.
The police on Monday arrested the singer in Tanzania for failure to show up for a paid concert.
According to the Tanzanian Concert promoter, Stephen Uwa, Kizz Daniel refused to perform at the event because he (Kizz Daniel) was not with his gold chain.
“He (Kizz Daniel) only 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.
The show promoter added that he paid Kizz Daniel $60, 000 to perform on the show and still had to beg him but the singer didn’t show up.“Three times, I knelt for Kizz Daniel and I begged him,” Uwa said
He added, “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’.
”Then on Monday, the Singer was arrested in Dar es Salaam. The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission later announced that the singer has been released from police custody in Tanzania and will return to the country.
During press conference on Tuesday night streamed on the show promoter’s Instagram page, the ‘Buga’ crooner explained his side of the story.
According to him, he intended to perform later on the show but his management team advised him not to leave the hotel for his safety after disgruntled fans trashed the venue in anger at the non-appearance of the singer.
The Buga crooner added that the situation was beyond his control, he apologised and promised a free show for Friday.
“This Friday, a free show by the way, I will be partnering with Straight Up Vibes to make that happen.“I must apologize to the fans. None of this was intentional.”
