Give us free? The concert promoters who found themselves kidnapped and stuck in Angola after Nas failed to show up for a concert have been finally let go, reports TMZ.

Patrick Allocco and his son (his namesake) were involuntarily kicking it in Angola for almost two months before they were released today. “An order was entered today by Angolan authorities lifting the travel ban which prevented [Patrick] and his son from leaving the country for 49 days after [Nas] failed to show for a New Year’s Eve concert,” said Allocco’s rep in a statement.

The Alloccos were escorted by US Embassy officials to the airport, where they caught a flight to Lisbon. The Jersey natives are expected to arrive in Newark Airport on Satursday (February 18).

“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,” added Allocco’s rep.

As for Nas, he paid back the money he was advanced weeks ago. However, Esco has plenty of problems stateside since he owes the IRS over $6 million in taxes and his daughter Destiny has been sharing entirely too much info on Twitter.
