Ye Bariba crooner and popular Nigerian rapper, Babalola Falemi popularly known as Sauce Kid or Sinzu, has been released from a United States prison.
Last year, the rapper was sentenced to 2 years in prison for aggravated identity theft, and credit card fraud.
The rapper was accused of stealing bank card numbers and identity information of their owners, and made $15,388 from the unsuspecting victims.
On Sunday, March 25, 2018, a video on Instagram, captioned “My bro is back!! SINZU”, showed the rapper being welcomed home.
This means that he has spent less than a year of the 2 year sentence, since he was sentenced in June last year.
Bounce News investigated and found out that according to American law, his early release could be due to good behaviour, or the American authorities plan to deport Sinzu to his country of birth.
Sinzu came on the Nigerian music scene in 2005 and dropped his first mixtape in 2006, titled ‘Best of Both Worlds: Money Long The Mixtape’, which made him a rap legend in Nigeria.
By 2012, his career had gone into a nose dive and has not survived since.
