According to TMZ.com, Ne-Yo fired his backup dancers because they were too afraid to travel to Japan in the wake of the recent earthquake and Tsunami. Ne-Yo has a couple of tour dates in Japan and is doing charity work to help aid the earthquake and tsunami victims.
The site reported that the tour manager informed the dancers that they were still going to Japan after the quake, several dancers were worried about their safety — due to the threat of aftershocks and exposure to radiation. Sources said that four dancers decided not to make the trip — and they were told by the tour manager that they were dropped from the rest of the tour. Ne-Yo has two more shows in Japan, he has one today (March 21sth) and another on March 24th. As well as a show in Korea on March 30th. Some of the proceeds from the show will go to victims on the earthquake.
