Allocco In Angola

Promoter Patrick Allocco was stuck in the African country of Angola at press time, claiming he was held by government officials for a New Year’s Eve concert gone bad.

Allocco told Pollstar he was under house arrest at a hotel after being interrogated about a canceled Nas concert.

Government officials apparently wanted a $315,000 advance returned but Allocco and his son were to stay at the hotel until the government offices opened up after the holidays.

Sources close to Nas told TMZ the cancellation was part of a miscommunication and the artist planned to do his part to resolve the situation.

The report jibes with sources Pollstar talked to, who were not fully on board with Allocco’s version of events.
