Mr Nice with Kenyan singer Jaguar at Hilton Hotel on August ahead of his comeback tour.

Tanzanian artist Mr.Nice has not been given the warmest of welcomes on his return to the showbiz scene.

The hitmaker who took over the East African region with his ‘fagilia’ wave was robbed at gunpoint in Eastlands, Nairobi, over the weekend.

Mr Nice is currently in Kenya promoting his comeback album, Kioo.

The weekend incident happened when Mr Nice was on his way to Jericho estate when a youthful gang hijacked his car brandishing guns.

“They commanded me to follow their orders before robbing me of everything I had including cash, laptops and jewellery as well as recording material,” he said, noting that his total loss amounted to close to Sh1.5 million.

The matter was reported to the police who have launched investigations.
