This Is Crazy: American Promoter & His Son Still Being Held In Angola 45 Days After Nas Failed To Show For Concert. Jemiah Jai Refuses To Return Money She Was Paid


In what seems like the plot to a Hollywood movie two Americans are still being held in Angola 45 days after being prevented from leaving following a failed New Year's Eve concert appearance by Nas.


As we previously reported, 51-year old Patrick Allocco, CEO of AllGood Concerts and his 22-year old son, also named Patrick have not been allowed to leave Angola until local promoter Henrique "Riquhino" Miguel is paid back the $315,000 he fronted for the failed concert plus an additional $75,000 in expenses.


Nas and Atlanta rapper Jemiah Jai were paid to perform on New Year's Eve in Angola's capital city of Luanda, but neither boarded a plane to the event.

The Allocco's were apprehended by Miguel's goon's when they tried to take a cab to the airport once they realized Nas, who was paid $300,000 wasn't coming. 

Instead of taking them to the airport the taxi driver took them to a supermarket and told them he had someone to meet. Sensing something was wrong the younger Allocco told his dad they should leave according to a new story in the New York Post.

Dad, this isn’t good,” the son whispered. “Let’s get out of here.”

By the time they hopped out of the cab and tried to get their luggage out of the trunk they were surrounded by 20 of Miguel's men armed with AK-47's.

One of the gunmen reportedly grabbed the younger Allocco and slammed his head on an SUV before shoving both men in the back of a vehicle being driven by Miguel.

We are going to die,” Allocco’s son said.

The two were taken to a police station and interrogated in Portuguese, which neither of them speak.

That they’re being held for something that somebody else did is preposterous,” said worried wife and mother Abby Allocco.

Nas has finally returned all of the $300,000 he was advanced, but Jemiah Jai refuses to repay the $15,000 she received.

In the meantime, the Allocco's passports are being held and their money is running out fast. They had $100,000, but $40,000 has been spent on phone calls to the U.S. and other money is being spent simply trying to survive. A hamburger costs $45.

At one point the son was taken by locals to celebrate his pending release, but instead they tied his arms and dragged him through the streets, asking if his dad would pay $10,000 for his release.

He was warned to never leave the hotel again by an employee because he was a target.

The father and son applied for refuge with the U.S. Embassy January 23, but were denied because they were not deemed to be in serious harm.

We did not find, in this case, that Mr. Allocco met the criteria for refuge. However, we did bring [the son] into the Embassy temporarily,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. “My understanding is we gave him some clothes and some medicine, but we didn’t take him in for refuge."

The Angolan government has also refused to help, leaving these guys in a real bad space.

Alloco told the New York Post his beef is with Nas.

He put us in real harm, in real possible danger,” Allocco said. “This is the closest thing we came to someone up and running with the money.”

Well, even though Nas gave his $300k back, the promoter still wants the $15k from Jeremiah Jah (whoever that is), AND another $75k in expenses. So the promoter still wants $90k paid to him! So its not just the $15,000 thats owed, and honestly even though Nas gave his $$ back it was f***** up for him to take the money in the first place knowing he wasnt gonna show up, so he's still at fault. Oh, $300,000 just happened to show up in your bank account and you didnt know where it came from? YA RIGHT. If thats the case, give me a m************ application.
Secondly, who is Jeremiah Jah? And how does this artist not have $15,000 but was able to perform with Nas? Either way they shouldnt have taken African peoples money, they dont play about their s*** man we all know this. Honestly it should be Nas and Jemiah a** down there held hostage, this is f***** up man.
And let me add, if the U.S. Embassy wont help 2 white american citizens (not to be racist just being real) then there is something else going on that we dont know about. They surrounded them with 20 AK-47's and the Embassy says they are not in serious harm? Come on get real, there is more to this than we know,
