EFCC allegedly arrests ‘Elon Musk’ crooner, Shallipopi

Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Crown Uzama also known as Shallipopi, has been reportedly arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The artiste’s younger brother, Zerry made this known in a message sent to popular blogger, GossipMill.

He said Shallipopi was arrested with his manager during a raid on a hotel where he lodged to rest after a music show in Kaduna state.

Zerry said EFCC operatives seized the ‘Elon Musk’ hit maker’s phone and other personal effects on him.

He cried out to Well meaning Nigerians to come to his elder brother’s aide as he’s allegedly been in the custody of the anti-graft agency for days.

The young man said they are not permitting Shallipopi to speak to his family or contact his lawyer to come and secure his release.

In other news, human rights lawyer, Mr Femi Falana (SAN), has addressed concerns raised by some persons that his son, Folarin Falana aka Falz is embarrassing the government.

He said people reached out to him to call Falz to order over his utterances and activism which is putting the authorities in bad light.

According to Mr Falana, he queried the person who made such suggestion and said that Falz is an adult who is aware of his actions.

He further recounted when his son often watched him get arrested countless times during the military era, when he was fighting for democracy.

The Senior Advocate spoke on the back of a song which his rapper son released where he dissed the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu.

He said; “One of these guys one day said, ‘Falana talk to your son; he should stop embarrassing the government’. I said which government? You mean that boy who is an adult? Can I give you his number so you can talk to him? But be careful because when that boy was growing up, I was being arrested from time to time. So, the only language he understood was detention, arrest and the rest of them.

“One day, when that boy was six, he asked his mother, “Our teacher taught us that only criminals were arrested. Is my father a criminal? Why is he always being arrested? And the mother had to say that in Nigeria, under the military, only two sets of people were arrested: Criminals suspects and political suspects. Political suspects are those who are out to expose the criminality of the government. That is what you see going on.”
