Nigerian musician, Kizz Daniel has reportedly been released from Tanzanian police detention, according to the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission.
On Monday, a video that went viral on social media saw the musician being taken into custody by Tanzanian authorities.
Although no official comment was made by the police, it was revealed that the singer’s refusal to appear at a local event may have had anything to do with the arrest.
In response, NiDCOM tweeted that the artist was being detained by Tanzania’s Oyster Bay Police Station Civil Police in Dar es Salaam.
“We are presently engaging our Mission and see what can be done. We will keep the public posted with our investigation. Thank you,” the Commission added.
Giving an update, NiDCOM said, “Kizz Daniel has been released. His legal team will, however, report back to the police tomorrow while he will subsequently return to Nigeria.”
It would be recalled that on Monday, 8th August 2022, a video surfaced online of angry fans throwing objects at a deserted stage because Kizz Daniel had apparently failed to turn up for an event.
The fans threw cans of drinks and other objects on the floor and the stage as the event came to a premature end over the absence of the Nigerian artist.
According to some reports on Twitter, Kizz Daniel failed to appear at the show because his luggage was yet to arrive in Tanzania from Uganda and he refused to wear the clothes offered to him in Tanzania.
