Nigerian Government Secures A Release For Kizz Daniel Following Arrest In Tanzania

  • 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.

Tanzania police authorities have released the Nigerian music star, Kizz Daniel, real name Oluwatobiloba Anidugbe, 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.

Revellers reportedly paid entry fees that ranged from Sh50,000 to Sh20 million for an event that featured Tanzanian singers such as Mario, Saraphina and Mabantu.

The publication said his arrest came after the chaos at the event venue warehouse club in the early hours of Monday.
