- At some point in Nigeria, Babalola Falemi aka Sauce Kid was considered to be one of Nigeria's best rappers
- But those days are long gone judging by his current situation
- He is said to be incarcerated in an American jail
If you’ve been wondering why you haven’t heard much from popular Nigerian rapper Sauce Kid, it is because he is currently in an American jail battling grand theft charges.
This was revealed ‘accidentally’ by his friend and fellow rapper Willybang on Instagram. NAIJ.com further gathered that that the 32-year-old was arrested and booked on July 26, 2016, in Idaho for Grand Theft.
According to Wikipedia, Grand theft is committed when the value of stolen property exceeds $950. Theft is also considered grand theft when more than $250 in crops or marine life-forms are stolen, “when the property is taken from the person of another,” or when the property stolen is an automobile, farm animal, or firearm.
Looking at Sauce Kid’s Instagram page, NAIJ.com noticed that his last major post was 20 weeks ago when he wished musician Dammy Krane a happy birthday. However, Sauce has responded to the rumor that he is currently in jail writing that his family and friends are the last people he wants to disappoint.
This is also not the first time Sauce Kid has been arrested in the US. Back in 2014, a mugshot made the rounds showing that he had been arrested for forgery and unlawful possession of a firearm in 2013.
