The Bishop reported the matter to Congolese as well as Tanzanian authorities where he is alleged to have ties.
Congolese government banned the singer from entering or doing anything in the country.
The singer denied the allegations saying that the bishop and the event organizers used her name to advertise the evnt a fact that was against their agreement.
“The advertised the event using my name saying I was going to perform at the concert. That wasn’t the agreement. We had also agreed in the contract that they would send me air fare but they didn’t. Did they expect me to land in Congo by miracle? I haven’t conned anyone.” She said
