Tanzania-based Nigerian Show promoter, Steven Uwah has revealed why popular Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel was arrested in Tanzania on Monday.
Kizz Daniel was picked up by authorities in Tanzania on Monday after he failed to show up at his concert at the Warehouse, Old Nextdoor Arena, Tanzania.
During an Instagram live session with media personality, Daddy Freeze, Steven revealed that he paid Kizz Daniel $60,000 to perform at the launch of the mobile App he designed for booking events.
According to him, the Buga hitmaker refused to honor the contract after he claimed his luggage was yet to arrive from Uganda where he performed a day before.
Stephen said Kizz Daniel refused to show up because he didn’t have his chains and clothes. He went on to state that in an effort to remedy the situation, he brought Tanzanian superstar Harmonize and some stylists to try and sort out Kizz Daniel’s wardrobe but the Nigerian superstar refused to perform.
The disgruntled promoter also disclosed that Fly Boy label chief Paul called from the US to plead with Kizz to perform and he also went as far as going on his knees to plead with Kizz. However, their plea fell on deaf ears.
He added that the show cost him $300,000 with reputable brands like Pepsi and Martell sponsoring the show. A table also sold for as high as $10,000. Steven revealed that Kizz Daniel’s actions have set him at a loss and greatly damaged his reputation.
