The organizer of the Tanzania show where Kizz Daniel was supposed to perform, Stephen Uwa says the Nigerian singer didn’t perform because he was not wearing his chain.
Kizz Daniel was earlier arrested in Tanzania for allegedly failed to perform at the concert on Sunday after he was paid .
Speaking with Daddy Freeze on Instagram live session. Uwa said je paid the ‘Buga’ crooner $60,000 to perform at the show.
Uwa also alleged that a day before the event, “Daniel said he would not be performing because the airline did not bring his bag containing his gold chain.”
Uwa disclosed that efforts to make the musician perform at the show proved abortive.
“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.
“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.
“I spent nothing less than $300,000 on that show because it was a premium show, it was no joke. The table for that show was set for $5,000 and the highest table was set for $10,000.
“My company is new here (Tanzania). Paul O is the one I booked Kizz from. Paul O begged this guy ‘Please go to this show’. He called 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’m a Nigerian. I am trying to build my company here. You are going to damage me’. I begged this guy ‘Save my career, save my life’. I was on the table with Kizz Daniel for like five hours begging him, kneeling for him.”
The singer is yet speak on his arrest and Uwa’s allegations.
