Free at last!
Rapper Mos Def, AKA Yasiin Bey, left South Africa on Tuesday after he apologized for breaking some of the nation’s immigration laws.
The 42-year-old has been stuck in the country since January when he was arrested for trying to leave with a World Passport. South Africa does not recognize the World Service Authority-issued passport as a legitimate travel document.
Even though he issued an apology, Bey won’t be allowed back into the country where he has been living since 2013.
In a statement, officials said:
“(He) has unreservedly apologised to the Government of South Africa. The department is satisfied with the apology (and) will withdraw the charges against him.”
Well, we’re glad this matter was seemingly settled amicably.
