*An American concert promoter is claiming that rapper Nas‘ no-show at an Angola concert for New Years Eve caused him to be kidnapped.
The promoter, Patrick Allocco, of AllGood Entertainment, claims that a local concert impresario named Henrique Miguel kidnapped he and his son. It is reported that Miguel ponied up some major bucks for the show to occur – paying Nas and another act $315,000 to perform two shows. When both acts were unable to board their flights in time, the concert was panned.
Both Patrick and his son were eventually turned in to authorities after they called for the kidnappers to release them.
The Allocco’s released a statement:
“The hope is that Nas and Jemiah Jai will return all of the monies that were wired to them immediately so that our ransom may be paid and our safe return to the United States may be facilitated.”
