Kizz Daniel has apologised to fans for his late arrival at a show where he was scheduled to perform.


The ‘Buga’ singer was billed to perform at a concert in the United States but showed up hours late.

Enraged concertgoers screamed for a “refund”, booing the singer on stage when he eventually turned up.

In a statement on Saturday, the 28-year-old pleaded with the fans, explaining the reason behind his lateness.


He said his passport was withheld at the US consulate in Nigeria, hence flights booked prior were cancelled.

He also promised to make it up to them by scheduling another show, adding that their old tickets remain valid.

“DMV, thank you for showing up last night, and sincere apologies for all that happened. For some reasons, my passport was withheld at the US consulate in Nigeria until the day of the show,” he wrote.


“Previously booked flights had to be cancelled. Same reason I rescheduled the New York show. Just for the love and respect I have for you and my craft, I got on the next available flight to New York.

“The second I had my passport thinking I could still make it because I just don’t want to cancel another date. I went straight to the venue from the airport.

“We could have moved the show but my team and I believed we could meet up. The performance would have been longer also if the venue had allowed it.

“So sorry guys I’ll make it up to you. A new date will be announced and all your tickets remain valid. New York let’s have fun tonight.”


Kizz Daniel is currently on a tour of ten cities in the United States.
