Nas Finally Touches Base On Why He Missed The Concert In Angola
Nas finally gives up an explanation on why he was a no-show at the concert in Angola, and made it very clear that he felt thrown under the bus by kidnapped promoter.
Promoter (Patrick Allocco) and his son were kidnapped by another promoter (Henrique “Riquhino” Miguel) involved in the event after Nas was a no-show at a New Year’s Eve gig he was scheduled to appear at.
While making a recent appearance on MTV News, Nas explained that there were a number of issues with the promoters of the show.
“He wanted me to come to Africa for New Year’s. Which to me I thought would be the best way to spend New Year’s,” said Nas. “You booked the flight, but no return flight. I didn’t have a visa. You didn’t send money til after I was supposed to jump on the plane to another country.”
Nas also wanted people to know that he felt thrown under the bus by the promoter and explained that, “He was in some crazy danger in Africa so he threw me under the bus.”
Allocco and his son were eventually released once the money, $300,000 to be exact, was returned to the promoter.
