He is being held at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and could likely be deported back to Kenya.Renowned disc jockey DJ Crème de la Crème is being detained in the US after he was reportedly found with an inappropriate visa.
“I have some very urgent and sad news. DJ Crème de la Crème landed safely in DFW today from Kenya via Dubai on an Emirates flight. He texted me to inform me he had landed, I told him I was out there waiting for him to clear with immigration. Unfortunately he did not go through immigration and he is being held at DFW,” the promoter posted on his Facebook page.
“We have talked to a Kenyan embassy official who has advised us. Pending a miracle, Crème will not be showcasing his talents this weekend. Any questions about Vera Sidika, ask me. She is contracted to me and it’s a good thing I cancelled her show from the turn things have taken… Friday we will still be at Murphys Mansion. Ma DJ ni wengi ma DJ sio kiasi,” he wrote.
Bongo Flava star Ommy Dimpoz was arrested and jailed over the same issue in the US in 2015, and later talked about it in an interview with Bongo 5
(I never thought in my life that I would ever sleep in a prison cell, but I did, complete with the orange-coloured jailbird uniform that you see in the Prison Break TV show. My offense was that I was going to perform at a show, yet my visa did not permit me to do so. That visa had to be cancelled and I was sent back home to get the appropriate visa.”
