American Concert Promoter Kidnapped At Gunpoint In Angola After Nas Fails To Show For New Year's Eve Concert. *UPDATE* Nas Says He Has The Money & Wants To Get Promoter Home Safely


An American concert promoter is lucky to be alive after being kidnapped at gunpoint by goons in the Republic of Angola because Nas failed to show for a concert there.


According to TMZ, Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai were paid $315,000 to perform two shows on New Year's Eve, but both failed to board their flights in time to perform at the scheduled events.


In an attempt to regain his money, local "concert impresario" Henrique 'Riquhino' Miguel sent armed men to kidnap AllGood Entertainment CEO Patrick Allocco and his son to prevent them from leaving the country. The pair were then handed over to local authorities who interrogated them for seven hours before the U.S. Embassy there stepped in to get them released.


A rep for the U.S. Embassy confirmed to TMZ that Alloco and his son were "in residence" at a local hotel until the dispute could be worked out.


Alloco's rep released the following 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."

So far neither Nas or Jemiah have responded.


Nas' reps have reached out to TMZ to explain their side of the story and to let everyone know they will cut the check to get American promoter Patrick Allocco back home safely.


The rapper's team said he did plan on performing in Angola on New Year's Eve, but a miscommunication about the travel plans derailed the performance.  According to Nas' reps he never intended to keep the money, but isn't sure where to send the check back to. A solution is reportedly being worked on.


"The key is getting Patrick Allocco home safely," said a source.
