A concert promoter in Tanzania, Stephen Uwa, has narrated why Nigerian singer and songwriter, Oluwatobiloba Daniel, aka Kizz Daniel, refused to attend a concert in Tanzania.
Singer, Kizz Daniel, has apologized for failing to perform at a show in Tanzania on Sunday.
Buga Crooner was arrested in Dar es Salaam by Tanzania Police over the incident on Monday, however, narrated his side of the story.
Recall police had arrested him over the incident while the show promoter, Stephen Uwa, had said he paid $60,000 to the music star and pleaded with him for over five hours to no avail.“He only said the airline didn’t bring his bag. That is why he could not perform because his gold chain is not there and he had a gold chain on his neck. He wanted everything,” he said.
Speaking with media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, on Monday night, Uwa narrated what transpired between himself and the Buga crooner.
According to him, Kizz Daniel refused to perform at the event because he (Kizz Daniel) was not with his gold chain necklace.
“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 promoted notes that he booked Kizz Daniel through his management, Upfront and Personal Global, headed by Paul Okoye, popularly known as Paul O.
According to him, Paul O cried and begged Kizz Daniel to come for the show too.
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.”
The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission has announced that the singer has been released from police custody in Tanzania and will return to the country.
“I bought him different clothes but he said just because the airline didn’t bring one of his bags, he cannot perform without his gold on his neck,” Uwa had said.
However, in a press conference on Tuesday, the Buga crooner said he and the organisers had decided to make it up to the Tanzanian fans who had shown him so much, love.
“The people were already going wild; the fans were going wild, which I know was out of love. So no disrespect to the fans… I was asked to stay back. ‘You can’t go, ‘It’s not safe. So I said ok. I sat down with the team, the organisers, and the promoters; let’s come up with a way to make it up to the Tanzanian fans and we decided to do a makeup show for free. I even agreed to partner with them this time around.
“This Friday, a free show; I will be partnering with Straight Up Vibes to make that happen. I must apologize to the fans. None of this was intentional.”
