21 Savage has been released from detention after being arrested by US Immigration authorities for being in the US unlawfully.
21 Savage has been released from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on bond, revealed E!. Last week, 21 Savage, whose real name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested by the ICE for being an “unlawfully present United Kingdom national”. His lawyers said his “legal status expired through no fault of his own.”
The rapper’s legal team comprised of Charles H Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro. They said, “For the past 9 long days, we, on behalf of She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, known to the world as 21 Savage, have been speaking with ICE to both clarify his actual legal standing, his eligibility for bond, and provide evidence of his extraordinary contributions to his community and society.”
They added, “21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters—he says that while he wasn’t present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world and is more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together.”
The rapper was awarded an expedited hearing and is fully intent on using his experiences to educate others. The team said, “He will not forget this ordeal or any of the other fathers, sons, family members, and faceless people, he was locked up with or that remain unjustly incarcerated across the country. And he asks for your hearts and minds to be with them.”
The rapper was claimed to have a criminal record. However, the claims have been proven wrong.
