In a swift turn of events, Tanzania-based show promoter, Steven has admitted that Kizz Daniel’s reason for not performing was not because he didn’t have his gold chain.
Kelvin who sat for an interview with Daddy Freeze alongside Kizz Daniel’s brother, Tolu, disclosed that there were pressing technical issues that stopped the Nigerian singer from performing.
Kizz Daniel’s brother, Tolu revealed that he was not paid in full, and Steven admitted that the $60,000 he said was earlier paid, was not paid to Kizz Daniel directly but to an agency managed by music executive, Paul Okoye.
When asked by Daddy Freeze why he claimed Kizz Daniel insisted that he won’t perform because he didn’t have his gold chain, Steven stated that “emotions were high that night”.
Steven also admitted that the singer tried to salvage the situation and also meet with fans to apologize and postpone the show after arriving for the event 1 hour before his performance, following an 8-hour flight delay in Kenya.
According to him, the show promoters told him there was no need for that as they will take care of it, but he never did.
Tolu who revealed that the contract for the show allowed for it to be postponed, added that Kizz Daniel also offered to pay for a hall and for other things to ensure that the show was successful if postponed, which the show promoters agreed to but reneged after things took a negative turn.
He also stated that the singer was not arrested but taken in for questioning to know what really happened.
In his defence, Steve admitted that they were trying not to have any issues with the authorities or sabotage the image of their business since they were just starting out as concert promoters and he didn’t know how to explain to the fans that the concert had been postponed.
