Concert Promoter Freed From Angola After Botched Nas NYE Show

UPDATE #3: The promoter originally paid Nas to perform in Angola on New Year's Eve, but he failed to appear.

An American concert promoter named Patrick Allocco says that he and his son were kidnapped after Nas failed to show up at a New Year’s Eve performance in Angola.

According to TMZ, Allocco, who serves as CEO for AllGood Entertainment, and his son were kidnapped at gunpoint by employees of local “concert impresario” Henrique “Riquhino” Miguel, who had supplied money for the show.

Allocco had paid Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai $315,000 to perform two shows but both artists failed to get on flights to Angola. Miguel took him into custody as he feared that Allocco would leave the country before the matter was resolved. He and his son were passed off to local authorities, who interrogated them for seven hours before letting them go. They are still in Angola trying to work out the money issue.

"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,” read a statement from Allocco’s people.

[January 3]

UPDATE: Nas is reportedly trying to return the money he accepted from his botched New Year's Eve performance in Angola so that concert promoter Patrick Allocco can return to the States. While he won't "shoulder the entirety of the blame," Nasty Nas agreed to perform the gig but called it off after a "miscommunication" about travel plans. He is unsure of where to send the check, but is working on the solution to bring him back to America.

[January 4]

UPDATE #2: During an interview with NJ's The Star Ledger, concert promoter Patrick Allocco, who is still being held in Angola with his son, said that Nas returned $200,000 of his $300,000 payment to perform but won't fork over the rest.

"He is supposed to send another $100,000, but now he is reneging," Allocco said.

Allocco and his son are in an Angolan hotel hoping to resolve this "nightmare."

[January 9]

UPDATE #3: According to TMZ, Patrick Allocco and his son have been freed from Angola, escored by Embassy Officials on a flight to Lisbon. They will be back in New Jersey on Saturday afternoon.

"An order was entered today by Angolan authorities lifting the travel ban which prevented [Patrick] and his son from leaving the country for 49 days after [Nas] failed to show for a New Year's Eve concert," said a rep for Allocco. "We are relieved that this nightmare is over and are looking forward to coming home to our family and friends who have supported us with their prayers and optimism during this ordeal."

    Vargas - Your law firm huh? lol I'm guessing your Daddy brought you in to get coffee, fax documents, and watch him sell his soul to the same devil you will once the training wheels come off. As for Nas, anybody can dress up the numbers, but were talking about his kid. Find a way to pay the money. Very simple.

      ^^^Dead wrong jagoff. Got an undergrad in mechanical engineering, work @ a firm full time, and go to law school at night. Daddy didn't have a damn thing to do with that. I wouldn't call helping inventors get patents as selling your soul to the devil. LOL you sound like a failed guidance counselor by the way. Word is Nas paid the cash in full long ago, so I could give a fuck about what you think you know based on the bullshit articles on this site.

    why dint you call my evil empire for money??????? lol

  • sniper

    @comachonvargas Preach! Knowledge is like poison to the average hiphop fan. I didn't like how Nas seemed to initially be doing the promoter dirty by taking the money for Angola and then showing up at Diddy's party in Miami but... we now see that the whole concert situation in Angola was some shady business. Glad that promoter and his son are coming home and I hope that these artists/ promoters will investigate where there money is coming from in the future (i.e. Beyonce accepting performance money from Khadaffi family while people in Libya starved, etc.)

    6 mil owed in taxes huh; Nas is certainly in the 35% fed bracket, and presuming this balance is over 2 years, that means he made about 8.57 mil each of the last 2 years [17 mil]. Maybe the balance is spaced out longer, but he is at minimum pulling 2 mil a year. With 55K a month in child support, he still clears well over a mil easy. And he has been doing this for many many years at this point. Not to mention a judge doesn't award 660K a year in child support when the father is broke like all you dumb fucks claim. Every one of you 'Nas is broke' dumb fucks are fucking failures jumping at an opportunity to point out problems of a guy who has done more in one lifetime than you could do in ten. I guess misery really does love company. I am in my mid 20s running up on over 100K a year easy and I wish for a tenth of the financial success Nas has had. You broke fucks are getting bus passes to H&R Block, hoping for a tax refund that you won't use to support an artist you claim to love [that last part applies to a lot of my fellow Nas fans - BUY THE MANS FUCKING MUSIC]. Make something of yourself instead of championing the next man's problems. You cocksuckers really turn the crabs in a bucket mentality into an art form. What makes Nas so great is that HE WANTS YOU TO SUCCEED. He wants you to better yourself, to learn from mistakes that he openly admits to on wax. His legacy will be the quality of his music, not this bullshit with the IRS, his marital problems, and all the other nonsense you bitchmade naysayers bring up to try to degrade the man. What will your legacy be? I bet I know what it is... 'Nobody owe you can't do nothing for self Want niggas to show you How to come up with green I schemed since I was 14 WHAT THE FUCK WAS YOUR DREAM Rented cars, little brods Saying you was seen with lil niggas Little chains, you was doing your thing How high was I You the 1000th guy Come around thinkin We could see eye to eye' YOU FAGGOTS STILL DREAMING YOU AREN'T BROKE, DREAMING YOU COULD CREATE SOMETHING THAT WILL OUTLIVE YOU FOR DECADES...

    Ever since Mike Tyson blew through 300 million it's no secret rappers and athletes are in reality broke these days. Like someone else pointed out. Maybe on paper Nas is worth millions, but in reality, the money he has on hand could be peanuts, especially when you factor in a divorce, child support, tax issues, low album sales of late, no movie deals.... Rappers literally don't have a Plan B.

  • AnoNas

    Poeple are really quick to to call nas a crook for this whole fiasco. First off, its ANGOLA. Not L.A., not England, not japan, not south africa, or any of the more stable countries in africa. Crooks are everywhere. They already kidnapped dude and they demanding extra money to get a profit. Either side can be labeled a crook.There are a lot of corrupt people. Check wikipedia websites on Angola,there is high economic disparity. I would be contemplative of who to trust to give the money to because people can steal the money you gave and pretend like you didn't send any money. It was a smart move to only give a part of the money back because you get leverage and and you can figure out who you can trust. At the same time this could be some grimy scheme planned by Nas that went wrong but you still have to consider all scenarios before coming to a conclusion. Also as a Nas fan I would like to point out that Jay-z isnt a saint. I think he lost that beef with Nas. Also Jay-z is a crook himself. He tried to profit from occupy wall street. Look it up and check my statements for yourself.

    WTF!!! A'int nobody comment on the fact that the article don't make any sense at all!??? Patrick Allocco and his son were kidnapped and need ransom?? But the so called kidnapper passed them off to local authorities, who interrogated them for seven hours and then... get this, this is the grand finale: LET THEM GO!!!!!!! WHAT??? Why do they still need ransom then??? Makes no sense at all! Maybe the local authorities is involved, but the article in itself doesn't make any sense! And let me just ad. Nas is a MC, but he is still a fuckin' gimmick!!! With no integrity at all! For example: Hip Hop is dead!!! One year later Nas was asked about why Hip Hop is dead in an interwiev. Nas replied: That was last year, this year it's about my new album... Another example: Nas stated that Def Jam was a evil empire and he had the hole beef with Jay-Z... couple of years later Nas signs with Def Jam, when Jay-Z was Def Jam president. FAKE like 90% of all other rappers. Still like his ol' music though.

      ^^^ Lol you guys are so sweet looking out for your man JJ Evans like that while he claims Nas is fraudulent. Or is it that Nas is inconsistent? Not sure which one. Funny that you guys just have to revert to calling someone a cocksucker or a stan when you can't challenge their arguments. Anyways I could care less that Jay pulls four obscure references from Nas' 10+ discs that show contradictory subject matter... not all that hard to do... Jay is it I do it for hip hop or fuck perception go with what makes $$cents? Is it giving props [Where I'm From/Dead Pres/Rap Game Crack Game] or throwing shots [Takeover/SupaU/BP2]? See? I can do it for Jay just as easy People act like Jay is 'real' because he said he was about $$$ from the jump and never strayed from that. Remember when he got vetted by Dehaven who said that about 15% of the shit Jay said was true? Regardless, people use this shit just to excuse Jay's complete lack of creativity and subject matter diversity. Jay CAN BRAG ABOUT HIMSELF CREATIVELY. Thats it. No concept tracks, minimal storytelling, minimal imagery, NO RISKS. You guys can question Nas' integrity all you want, and he may be suspect at times, but its pathetic that you are relying on Hov's word when he is no more 'real' than Nas. Hov is the best braggadocio MC, perhaps most versatile flower of all time in his prime, but thats it. Very strong discography too. But don't base your criticism of Nas on Hov's bullshit BP2 track. Nas can actually articulate contradictory subject matter as A REAL ARTIST. Hov doesn't even try. But he does bite lyrics and sample artists' he claims to be wack more than any other MC who could legitimately claim the GOAT title. Just saying. Btw you anonymous fucks are always saying the same bullshit so you aren't fooling anybody... you act like Nas personally sheisted you or something... What is lacking in integrity about a guy who does a reggae/rap album and donates proceeds to African countries anyways? ONE

Not to mention that if that verse is so truthful, then what does 'for I will not lose for even in defeat, there's a valuable lesson learned SO IT EVENS IT UP FOR ME' mean? Well I will tell you... IT MEANS THAT THE VICTOR WAS DECIDED 10 YEARS AGO AND IT WASN'T JAY Nas just needed that 3rd verse on Ether to make Jay nearly cry on hot97, to make him produce a forced and poorly calculated response track that resulted in him apologizing because his mommy wanted him to. Then, when Jay was finally able to pull himself together, you got that Blueprint 2 track. Some good barbs in that? Sure... but Nas had already prevailed and that was just a weak look from Jay [not to mention the subliminals laced throughout the Watcher 2] The funniest thing about Blueprint 2 is that Jay is basically complaining to his fans who declared Nas to be the winner in the battle 'And y'all buy the shit caught up in the hype?' LOL. Why don't you Jay stans seem to realize that? It's right there plainly in the lyrics that you lame fucks are quoting No one was saying this bullshit back in 01. Jay tried to play his revisionist history in interviews like when he said RD was a classic and everyone is playing along. Fuck that. Ether was the most visceral, hard-hitting, ego-crushing, ferocious, disrespectful, funny, and humiliating diss record ever. Point blank period. And Jay is still afraid to beef with other rappers to this day because of that track [see Wayne, Cam, Jenny Jones, X etc.] ONE

    There was a dude in elementary school who used to get all A's....It annoyed the shit out me and my class and we all wanted him to fail. One day he got a D on a test and the whole class laughed at him and said "Guess, you aren't so great after all". The same thing can be applied to this intense hatred of Nas. Nas is just too good a rapper...People want him to fail, they want him to have flaws. Most didn't even consider the possibility of Nas not knowing about this.. This is a very common problem with artist doing shows in other countries...But because it's Nas it becomes a big deal and a "GOTCHA!!" moment. btw That guy from our class grew up to be more successful then everyone who teased him about that D. Nas will prevail..Just as he always does...and your life will still suck.

    SMH at all these comments about Nas being broke, scamming and shit. I'm sure EVERYBODY always gets where they need to go when it involves flights, and on time. You all need to get it together.

  • dentaldamboy

    Wow, Nas too scared to go back to the homeland. Wayne ain't scared to go anywhere. Guess it's true what they say, YMCMB is the future of hip hop.

      Nas is reportedly trying to return the money he accepted from his botched New Year's Eve performance in Angola so that concert promoter Patrick Allocco can return to the States. While he won't "shoulder the entirety of the blame," Nasty Nas agreed to perform the gig but called it off after a "miscommunication" about travel plans. He is unsure of where to send the check, but is working on the solution to bring him back to America.

      LIKE I SAID B4, YOU FANBOYS DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT THIS GAME BUT YOU SWEAR YOU DO CHEERING FROM THE SIDELINES. THERE IS A PROTOCOL FOR THINGS LIKE THIS. EVEN SOME MONEY IS NON-REFUNDABLE. THERE ARE NUMEROUS PROMOTERS OUT THERE WHO WOULD HAVE JUX NAS AND HE WOULDA GOT THERE AND EITHER NEVER LEFT THE HOTEL BECAUSE THE OTHER HALF WASN'T THERE, OR DID THE SHOW ON THE SHORT OR WOULDA GOT THERE AND 8 PEOPLE SHOWED UP DUE YO POOR PROMOTION. NOW JUST BECAUSE JUELZ & GUCCI WERE CALLED OUT FOR THIS DOESN'T MEAN ALL RAPPERS DO IT. GOOGLE IT FOR FACTS BITCHES. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY, MANY OF STORIES OF FORMER ROAD MGRS, WEED CARRIERS & HUSTLERS WHO HAVE PULLED THE SAME SCAM, AND IT AIN'T ONLY RAPPERS. ARTISTS KNOW THIS, FANS DON'T YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN AND YOU SO GULLIBLE WHERE YOU DON'T SEE THEM FCUKED UP PROMOTERS TAKE THE ARTISTS AND THE FAN'S MONEY MOST OF THE TIME. PROMOTERS TRY TO CHARGE THE PLANE, CAR, DRINK AND TELLY DOUGH TO THE SHOW WHILE THEY KEEP THEY % AND YOU STILL HAVE TO PAY YOUR ROAD MGR RAPPER AND I HOPE YOU AIN'T GOT A DJ OR ENTOURAGE BECAUSE THE PROMOTER SENDING WOMEN AND DRINKS YOUR WAY TO DECREASE THE TAB. PROMOTERS GET BEAT DOWN RUNNING FROM THE BOX OFFICE BEFORE THE NIGHT ENDS. SAUL GOODE 'CAUSE NAS KNOWS TO EVEN WANNA GIVE BACK THE DEPOSIT. THAT INEXPERIENCED PROMOTER ALMOST GOT HIS CAPPED PEELED. READ THAT AGAIN BECAUSE THAT IS THE MORAL OF THE STORY.

  • dentaldamboy

    You know who else is gonna get kidnapped?...Beyonce by Wayne and Birdman, just like Wayne said in his verse. I'm surprised that they didn't get her on New Year's Eve. That would have been a huge accomplishment for Wayne. Then Wayne gonna get most of Jay's paper and Jay is gonna take another loss. YMCMB

    • thelowendtheory

      ill say it again dentaldamboy, ur ignorant as fuck. i aint jumping on the jayz train, its just that anyone that knows hip hop knows that jayz has like 3 or 4 classics, adn lil gayne has shit. you think im a bandwagoner, u prolly only started reppin young money when lollypop came out and all of a sudden you claimed to be a avid fan. go listen to some old school, some real hip hop, and then come back to this site, stupid muthafucka

      Shut the fuck up you cock-sucking faggot. You probably mad cause Jay-Z for Cole and Electronica locked up in his closet and uses them as fluffers when his butt-boy Rick Ross needs a break, Why don't you get a mind of your own for once. Stop dick-riding Jay Z cause some down low undercover brothers from ur hood bump his shit when they play circle jerk. If you wipe the cum off of your eyes, you'll see that Lil Wayne and YMCMB is the truth.

    it wouldn't surprise me at all that he didn't show. look how many people have been skipping out on shows lately. i see an article in the news at least once a week of some dickhead not attendting his or her obligations. it's just not right. at least pay the money back and apologize for not keeping your word.

    This seems to be common theme right now. American artists getting paid to perform in african countries, not turning up and keeping the money. There's some really fraudulent rappers out there right now. I don't know why hhdx are spicing up the story either, he wasn't kidnapped, the guy who fronted the money took them to the police, which seems normal.
