According to media reports American rapper Mos Def has been arrested in Cape Town, South Africa.
The rapper born Dante Smith was arrested at the Cape Town International Airport on charges related to “fraudulent passport”.
South Africa’s Ministry of Home Affairs spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete addressed the situation via Twitter, and he revealed Mos and his family have 14 days to depart the country.
Mos reportedly relocated to South Africa in 2014. Last year, the “Ms. Fat Booty” rhymer did an interview with Beats By Dre where he explained why he moved away from the United States.
“America’s really a very challenging place for me,” said Mos. “Sure there’s great business opportunities, but given the current social, political, economic climate it’s very difficult, unnecessarily difficult, to create to the degree of fullness, the type of robust creativity I like to have – it’s very difficult for me to produce that [in America],” he was quoted as saying.
Hmm wonder, think he might need another plan now.
