Men Kidnapped Over Nas Show Freed

(AllHipHop News) Two men being held hostage in Angola over a failed Nas concert were freed today (February 17).

TMZ.com reports that concert promoter Patrick Allocco and his son were freed by Angolan authorities
today, when a travel ban was lifted.

“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,” a rep for Patrick Allocco said in a statement.

The drama unfolded 49 days ago on New Year’s Eve, when Nas and Jemiah Jai failed to board a plane to Angola for the concert.

Armed men associated with local promoter Henrique Miguel’s company Casa Blanca Entertainment accosted the men as they attempted to reach the U.S. Embassay in the country, to help resolve the dispute.

The Allocco’s and his son were held hostage against their will for almost two months.

The local promoter demanded that the Nas return the $300,000, who eventually complied.

But the promoter demanded an extra $50,000 for expenses and damages, which the Allocco’s could not come up with.

Today, the men were escorted by U.S. Embassy officials to Lisbon.

The Allocco’s will arrive in Newark, New Jersey tomorrow (February 18).
