The Tanzanian show’s promoter has provided his own account of what happened that Kizz Daniel was unable to perform.
As a result of his failure to appear on a show on Sunday, August 7, despite being paid, Kizz Daniel was detained by Tanzanian authorities earlier today.
In an interview with Daddy Freeze, the show’s promoter, who went by the name Stephen Uwa, claimed that Kizz Daniel turned down the opportunity to perform because the airline forgot to bring his bag containing his gold chains and insisted he would not perform unless he was wearing every gold chain he owns.
”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 claimed to have spent no less than $300,000 on the performance, including $60,000 for Kizz Daniel’s fee. Despite this, the singer’s show was a complete bust. He claimed to be sobbing and pleading with Kizz Daniel to perform but the latter 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”
According to Stephen, the angry fans trashed some of the items brought in by the show’s sponsors, causing damage to the entire arena.
