Rapper 21 Savage, who was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), for being unlawfully present in the US and for being a felon was released on Tuesday in Atlanta, barely 30 hours after The Grammy awards
According to DailyMail, the decision to release the rapper came during a closed-door hearing
Following his release, 21 Savage’s lawyers issued the following statement: “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.
“In the last 24 hours, in the wake of the Grammy Awards at which he was scheduled to attend and perform, we received notice that She’yaa was granted an expedited hearing.
“Today, 21 Savage was granted a release on bond. He won his freedom.
“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.”
However, reactions have trailed the Rappers situstion by Entertainment enthusiasts and TMH respondents. Ranging from the believe that his arrest must have been packaged by some persons concerned with his nomination and his performance at the 61st Grammy awards.
