(AllHipHop News) Unfortunately for “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” rapper, a business deal that went awry has left him stranded in the United Arab Emirates, where his passport has been seized.
A court in Abu Dhabi issued a ruling on February 20, confiscated his passport and barred the rapper from leaving UAE.
Silento is accused of being a no-show at several events, prompting a lawsuit of almost $80,000.
Reps for Silento claimed that he never received his performance, prompting the whole dispute.
To push back, Silento has started a crowdfunding page, where he’s seeking $100,000, under the #FreeSilento campaign.
Silento is already apparently getting to work to pay off the debt, since he performed at XL Beach Club in Abu Dhabi last night.
