Kizz Daniel Responds to Claims of Arrest in Ivory Coast, he said its Not True
Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe, widely known as Kizz Daniel, a Nigerian artist, has denied reports of his purported arrest and confinement in Ivory Coast.
According to reports, a famous blogger stated on Friday that the Afrobeat musician was detained in Abidjan by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for allegedly refusing to perform despite being paid.
Kizz Daniel, on the other hand, took to Instagram in the early hours of Saturday to put the record straight, emphasizing that the claims were false and unsubstantiated.
In his statement, the ‘Buga’ crooner revealed that the event organisers failed to honour their part of the contractual agreement.
Kizz Daniel said despite the whole scenario, he still went ahead to the venue to perform without payment.
He wrote, “This might definitely get a lot of people in trouble but damn, enough is enough. CAF didn’t deal with us directly, it was through an agent.
“The agent signed my contract which states ‘no money no performance’.
“I agreed to fly in regardless, after so many appeals and of cuz excuses on bank transfer delay with the promise of receiving the money upon arrival in Abidjan.
“Till now no payment, not even the alleged amount mentioned. I still chose to support CAF and went ahead to the venue to perform without payment, but unfortunately, my 3-minute performance slot was up.
“My team were assaulted backstage and I decided to take my leave. I am not arrested by CAF OR DETAINED WHATSOEVER.“
