”I was treated as a criminal in Kenya because I’m Nigerian”- Rapper, Falz the Bahd Guy
By Patricia Uyeh
Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana a.k.a Falz the Bahd Guy narrated his experience at a Kenyan airport.
According to the ”Soft work” crooner, he was treated like a criminal because he was a Nigerian at the Kenyan airport and that for him was the worst form discrimination he had ever experienced.
This had happened when he went holidaying in Kenya with a group of friends. Falz had opened up in a new interview with Sound City‘s Moet Abebe recently.
He said: “We were about getting into the airport..in Kenya. The [immigration] sent us to go to the side [along] with Nigerian people [and] they just kept on saying ‘cyber crime! internet fraud!,”
“It was disgraceful. It was extremely shameful. Obviously, it is discrimination. Because I’m Nigerian, you automatically think I am a cyber criminal?”
