Show Promoter Recants, Denies Gold Chain Was Reason Kizz Daniel Refused To Perform In Tanzania


August 11, (THEWILL) – Steven Uwa, a Tanzania-based show promoter, has admitted he lied about Kizz Daniel failing to perform because he didn’t have his gold chain as earlier reported.

Steven, who sat for an interview with Ifedayo Olarinde, aka Daddy Freeze, alongside Kizz Daniel’s brother, Tolu, has revealed there were uncontrolled pressing technical issues that hindered Nigerian singer from performing at the show.

During the interview session, Daddy Freeze asked why he claimed Kizz Daniel insisted that he won’t perform because he didn’t have his gold chain, Steven stated that “emotions were high that night.”


The singer’s brother also disclosed that he (Kizz Daniel) was not paid in full, in response Steven claimed that $60,000 was earlier paid, but it was not paid to Kizz Daniel directly, but to an agency managed by music executive, Paul Okoye.

Steven also admitted that the singer tried to salvage the situation and also meet with fans to apologise, and postpone the show after arriving for the event 1 hour to his performance, which was due to an 8-hour flight delay in Kenya.

According to him, the show promoters told him there’s no need for that as they will take care of it, but they never did.
Tolu furthermore revealed that the contract for the show allowed for it to be postponed, he added that Kizz Daniel also offered to pay for a hall and for other things to ensure that the show was successful if postponed, which the show promoters agreed to, but absconded after things took a negative turn.

Tolu also cleared the air on the alleged singer’s arrest, he stated that the singer was not arrested, but taken in for questioning to know what really happened.

Steven admitted that all these happened, but said they were only trying not to have issues with authorities because they are new in business in the country and also didn’t know how to tell the concert-goers that it has been postponed.
