It seems like rapper 21 Savage may have had a reason behind his quiet demeanor in the music industry. He isn’t an American citizen!🙄
The 26 year-old rapper was arrested, in the midst of the Super Bowl Sunday shenanigans yesterday in Metro Atlanta. ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) reportedly seized Savage in a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners.
The authorities claim that 21 Savage, whose actual name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, actually overstayed on his U.S visa from the United Kingdom, since over a decade ago, and has been in Atlanta ever since.
As you can imagine, the internet was set ablaze with several memes, such as this one 😀🤣.
Sources even revealed that the artiste may be getting deported due to his status. 😧
However, Savage’s attorney was not having it, stating that, “As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like almost two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own.”
The rapper has applied for a U-Visa since 2017 in order to remain in the United States.
Stay tuned as the story develops.
