Yasiin Bey Declared An Undesirable Person in South Africa
After nearly a year Yassin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def, has finally been allowed to leave South Africa but will not be allowed to return...
Back in January Brooklyn artist Yasiin Bey was arrested at Cape Town International airport after attempting to leave the country using an unrecognized 'World Passport [click here if you missed that].'
According to reports Yasiin was finally allowed to leave the country this week after apologizing to the South Africa government for his actions.
In exchange for the apology illegal immigration charges have been dropped, however Yasiin will be declared an undesirable person in South Africa and will not be permitted to re-enter the country.
Yasiin Bey has lived in South Africa since 2013.
