American rapper, Cardi B, has backed the campaign organized by activist group, Black Lives Matter, to free colleague, 21 Savage, after his detention by US Immigration officials.  

The 26-year-old musician spoke about the rapper’s incarceration via Instagram on Tuesday.

Posting a Black Lives Matter picture of 21 Savage, she wrote: “21 did not come here illegally and was not caught doing anything illegal or doing any mischief! in fact he have change his whole life around and as ya can see he’s been very positive in his actions and music.”

Cardi B further thanked the embattled rapper for his support to her and her husband, Offset, during difficult periods.

21 Savage was arrested by officials of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Sunday.

ICE officials revealed that the musician is a British national who entered the US legally as a teenager in 2005 but failed to leave under the terms of a non-immigrant visa.

The Bank Account singer born, Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was assumed to be from Atlanta and has since been placed in removal proceedings.
