8 Nigerian Music Stars That Have Spent Time In Police Custody

In a way, there’s this street cred you get when you have been in police custody, it in fact, boosts your “street” reputation, cause the streets knows you’ve done time and you shouldn’t be messed with you see… I speak of foreign music acts though, the artistes of the Hip Hop genre especially.

Unlike their foreign counterparts, Nigerian music acts can’t boast of spending “much time” in prison, but they sure can testify of landing in the hands of law enforcement agencies…

… and we are counting down those who have experienced that ordeal in recent times.
