Nigerian music icon Kizz Daniel has been released from police custody after being detained for failing to show up at a paid performance in Tanzania
Early on August 9, 2022, news on social media said that the “Buga” crooner had been released from police prison roughly 10 hours after being detained
It is however unclear if Kizz Daniel was released on bail or if the case has been closed.
According to our earlier Reports, that Kizz Daniel was detained in Tanzania on the afternoon of Monday, August 8, 2022
as a result of his failure to appear at an event where he was scheduled to perform in front of a 3000 person capacity crowd.

According to the show’s promoter Steven Ukah, a Nigerian who spoke to media personality Daddy Freeze
via an Instagram Live Chat, he revealed that Kizz Daniel was paid $60,000 for the performance.
He further added that Kizz declined to perform since his suitcase from Uganda,
where he had performed, had not yet arrived.
It is said that the luggage contained his clothes and valuables.
Steven claims that the Buga crooner turned down every article of clothes that stylists in Tanzania offered him.
And all requests for him to perform also went unanswered
since Kizz stated he wouldn’t perform without his clothes and jewelry.
Meanwhile With Kizz Daniel out of police custody, fans and Nigerians
will be hoping to get his side of the story either directly or through his management.
The singer has also been described as a difficult artist to work with due to his behavior
and the event in Tanzania is another blemish on his already battered personality.
On the other hand, Kizz has been having a wonderful 2022 with his hit single ‘Buga’ enjoying massive international success
which has seen him tour the UK and US. Kizz will be hoping to put this event behind him and get back to work.
