Steven Uwa, the promoter of the show in Tanzania at which popular Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, refused to perform and got arrested, has revealed why he took drastic actions.
He spoke in an interview Tuesday with On Air Personality and Leader of FreeTheSheeple Movement, Daddy Freeze.
Recall that Kizz Daniel was arrested by the Tanzanian Police on Monday over his failure to perform at a show on Sunday.
Uwa said Kizz Daniel refused to perform after he was paid $60,000 because the airline that brought him to Tanzania did not bring the bag containing his gold chains.
He said: “He (Kizz Daniel) 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.”
The show promoter said he spent over $300,000 in putting the concert together, adding that he knelt down begging Kizz Daniel for several hours to perform, but he refused.
Uwa added: “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.”
Uwa confirmed, as was earlier reported, that the venue of the show was damaged by angry fans who paid heavily to watch Kizz Daniel.
