EDISON - A Morristown concert promoter says that he has been held against his will in the South African nation of Angola for the past 10 days.

Patrick Allocco, a concert promoter, says that he was held at gunpoint and terrorized along with his son during three interrogations. He says they lasted over six hours.

The concert promoter says he is being held because rapper Nas failed to show up for a New Year's Day performance. Officials say Nas collected $300,000 but instead performed for LeBron James in Miami. Allocco says he was taken into custody by the Angolan government the following morning.

Allocco is currently safe in a U.S. Embassy. To hear a phone interview with Allocco, click 'PLAY'.
