The Nigerian Government has secured the release of popular singer and songwriter, Oluwatobiloba Daniel (aka Kizz Daniel) in Tanzania.
Kizz Daniel was arrested in Tanzania after failing to show up for a paid concert in the country.
Last night, Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, announced that the singer had been released.
The organisers of the Summer Amplified Show had arrested the “Buga” hit maker for failing to perform at the well-publicised show on Sunday night.
Fans of the singer were forced to wait until 6 a.m. for a live performance, but Kizz Daniel was absent.
The singer was reported to have arrived in the country earlier but refused to perform because of unavailability of his clothes.
A viral video on Twitter showed the singer wearing a black hoodie while being escorted into a Tanzanian police van.
But while reacting to a tweet last night from a twitter user pleading for Federal Government’s intervention, Mrs. Abike said: “KD has been released.
“His legal team will, however, report back to the police tomorrow (today) while he will subsequently return to Nigeria.”
