Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, has responded to viral claims of being arrested in Ivory Coast for allegedly collecting money and refusing to perform.
It was alleged that he was arrested by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Friday, October 13. This sparked mixed reactions online as he had been arrested on August 9, 2022, after he failed to perform at a gig, the Summer Amplified Show, in Tanzania.
In response to the new report, the ‘cough’ crooner took to his Instagram page to debunk the news of his arrest in Ivory Coast.

He stated that he was contracted to perform at the event, and his agent signed a contract which included the clause “no money, no performance.”
Despite their inability to pay due to a ‘bank transfer delay’ excuse, he said he agreed to fly in to perform with the promise of receiving his money when he arrives the country.

According to him, he wasn’t paid upon his arrival but still decided to go to the venue to perform. However, he had to leave the venue after his team was assaulted.
The 29-year-old singer 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 appeal 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 min performance slot was up.• My team were assaulted back stage and I decided to take my leave• I am not arrested by CAF OR DETAINED WHATSOEVER• I AM FINE AND HEADING TO LONDON FOR MY SHOWNOV I2, OVO ARENA, WEMBLEY”
