Nas‘ failed appearance in Angola, Africa has left a concert promoter “kidnapped,” according to reports.

TMZ reveals that the ‘One Mic’ rapper was reportedly scheduled to perform a New Year’s Eve concert yet his cancellation caused AllGood Entertainment CEO Patrick Allocco and his son to be abducted at gunpoint by hired goons, after local concert impresario Henrique “Riquhino” Miguel shelled out money for the show that was no longer occurring.

The Queens MC and opening act Jemiah Jai were paid $315,000 to perform two shows. When the two failed to board their U.S. flights in a timely manner to arrive in Angola, Miguel demanded that Allocco settle the outstanding money issue before leaving the country.

“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,” a statement from a representative for Alloco revealed.

Patrick Allocco and his son were detained by local authorities and interrogated for seven hours before the U.S. Embassy helped the two. According to the Embassy, Allocco and his son are “in residence” at a local hotel until the monetary issue is settled.

Nas has yet to release a statement on the matter.
