He also denied the claim made by the show promoter Mr. Steven Uwa that Kizz refused to perform due to the unavailability of his clothes or jewelry. Folu made counterclaims that Steven reneged on previous agreements and misappropriated the funds meant for the show which led to Kizz’s inability to perform.

“We stayed in Nairobi for eight hours and waited at the Airport Lounge and eventually got a connecting flight and arrived Dar-es-Salam at 11.30 pm and the band went straight to the venue. While this was happening, the organizers assured me and my team that everything was in order and the fans were properly communicated to. We eventually arrived at the hotel at 1.30 AM due to misplaced luggage and required documentation processes.”

Kizz Daniel revealed that he ensured the band was at the venue to ensure everything was in order despite the delay at the airport. However, the band was cut off stage due to their supposed late arrival.

Controversial Nigerian singer Habeeb Okikiola, a.k.a Portable, has warned popular music director and cinematographer ThankGod Omori Smith, better known as TG Omori or Boy Director, not to visit the Lekki area of Lagos State or Sango for his own safety.

This is coming after Omori, on Tuesday, gave in to the Portable demands to shoot his video after constant attacks on social media.

TG Omori told Portable to send a song so that he would do the video, but he’s yet to disclose whether it would be free of charge or he will discount the $50k fee.

Following the proposal, the duo launched an Instagram live session. Portable, who expressed dissatisfaction at TG Omori’s expensive charges, queried the director for not loving him again as he begged for his assistance.

He then jokingly threatened the music director not to visit Lekki or Sango for his own safety because there would be a fight if they met.

The Zazuu star wondered why the director was giving him attitude and stated that he should have continued with his offensive behaviour and seen what would have happened.

In response, TG Omori said it wasn’t personal, that he was only chasing after money before any other thing.

Recall that Omori had demanded $50k (over N22 million) for a video shoot from Portable earlier last month, which infuriated the ”Zazu Zeh” crooner, who enquired whether the director produced videos for ghosts.
