“I was contracted to perform here in Tanzania on the 7th and I was supposed to be in Uganda on the 6th and I said it’s nice to say hello to my people in Tanzania.

"I had a good time in Uganda…The connecting flight from Kenya to Dar es Salaam left and I was left stranded for over 8 hours.

“We landed in Dar around midnight and when we touched down we realized the airline forgot our luggages in Nairobi alongside some of the equipment we needed for the performance,” Kizz explained the genesis of his tribulations.

The singer sought to clarify that he was not arrested as it was widely reported – only taken in by police for questioning.
