The show's Tanzanian promoter Nigerian musician Kizz Daniel, who was unable to perform, has provided his own account of what happened.
After being paid to perform on a performance on Sunday, August 7, Kizz Daniel was detained by Tanzanian authorities on Monday.
The show's promoter, who identified himself as Stephen Uwa in an interview with Daddy Freeze, claimed that Kizz Daniel declined to play because the airline forgot to bring his bag holding his gold chains and maintained he would not perform unless he was wearing all of his gold chains.
''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 said he spent nothing less than $300, 000 on the show including $60,000 to Kizz Daniel as performance fee, however, the singer flopped everything. He said he was on his knees weeping and begging Kizz Daniel to perform but he 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''
Stephen said the whole venue was damaged as the angry fans destroyed some of the items brought in by the sponsors of the show.
Below is a video of his arrest.
