Nigerian serial hitmaker Kizz Daniel has shared his perspective on the incident that led to his recent arrest and opened up about the problems that deterred him from performing, apologizing to his Tanzanian fans in the process.
The artist explained the reasons for his absence in a news conference that was open to members of the local media in Tanzania. Kizz Daniel claimed that his travel plans had changed as a result of a one-hour flight delay from Uganda, where he had performed the day before. As a result of the delay, Kizz Daniel missed his connecting flight from Kenya to the Tanzanian capital of Dar es Salaam, which caused additional problems.
His clothing bag and the bags containing the band members’ equipment were left behind by the airline when he arrived in Tanzania at his destination about 1am. Kizz Daniel added that he had kept the event’s promoter informed throughout these hiccups and had also made the decision to go ahead with the show despite their difficulties. The singer revealed that he had also worked with local stylists to find a replacement for his missing clothing, but that he had ultimately been unable to go with band members to perform a pre-show mic check because the guests had already gathered at the venue.
Kizz Daniel explained that when making final preparations, he, the promoters, and the show’s organizers had a few unresolved issues. By the time they finished it and were ready to resume the performance, the venue had been vandalized by furious supporters. He further asserted that he was not detained but rather that the police had summoned him to be questioned after connecting his name to vandalism issues at the venue of the show he had chosen not to attend.
The singer who has now openly promised to make-up for lost time to his fans by performing at a free show also apologised to his Tanzanian fans and expressed his love for the country and her people.
Recall that news about Kizz Daniel’s arrest surfaced on the 8th of August following reports that he’d been absent at his headline show in Tanzania.
