Buga crooner, Kizz Daniel, real name Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe, has been released by the Tanzania police authorities. He was released hours after he was detained.
He was detained at the Oysterbay Police Station under tight security. The Chairperson of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, confirmed his release on Twitter Monday night.
Ms Dabiri-Erewa tweeted, “KD has been released. His legal team will, however, report back to the police tomorrow while he will subsequently return to Nigeria.”
The singer’s management has maintained silence since the news of his arrest went viral Monday afternoon.
The organisers of the Summer Amplified Show in Tanzania arrested the Buga hitmaker for failing to perform at the well-publicised show on Sunday night.
‘The Citizen’, a Tanzania publication, said that the singer failed to show up at the Summer Amplified concert at the Warehouse Arena (formerly Next Door Arena) in Dar es Salaam.
Revelers reportedly paid entry fees that ranged from Sh50,000 (N9,000 ) to Sh20 million (N3.5 million) for an event that featured Tanzanian singers such as Mario, Saraphina and Mabantu.
Kizz Daniel’s arrest came after the chaos at the event venue warehouse club in the early hours of Monday.
His fans waited for the singer to perform from 10 pm until sunrise causing damages that are yet to be specified.
Unconfirmed reports say Kizz Daniel was absent because he forgot his bags in Uganda and refused to use anyone’s clothes or buy new ones.
