Freetown, April 5th, 2017. A young musical artist in the person of Chernor Maju Bah, nicknamed ‘Mayoma’ aka ‘Rap Lord’ whose musical slogan stands in support of the masses has been declared wanted by the Sierra Leone Police for what they described as “ incitement with anti-government songs’’.
The music which was released in early April this year, became a topic of discussion all over the country as his lyrics, chorus and sound tracks were considered to be very demeaning critical of the current government.
Bah, an upcoming young musical artist based in the east of Freetown was declared wanted by the Sierra Leone Police after one of his recent musical songs hit the airwaves bashing at the ruling APC Government of President Koroma, accusing it of corrupt and extravagant in spending public funds.
The title of the music ‘Fed-Up’ exposes the corrupt system of the government and at the same time sensitizes the masses and creating awareness that the government has done nothing good other than corruption which is now the order of the day.
Mayoma, in his song, highlighted the syndicate surrounding the corrupt system whilst pointing at so called development as a farce and as well decried dozens of government agreement and contracts signed with other international businesses, as agreements signed to fill the pockets of politicians.
He also intimated in his song that the government brought the Ebola Virus diseases which claimed the lives of thousands of Sierra Leoneans (one of the reasons why the government became angry with him).
Just after the music had hit the airwaves, Mayoma was declared wanted with public notices placed on major areas and towns within and out of Freetown.
Police sources confirmed to this medium that a warrant of arrest has been issued to get Mayoma arrested and that a ransom of ten million Leones (which is equivalent to one thousand five hundred US dollars) has been put aside by the government for anyone knowing the whereabouts of the young upcoming musical artist.
According to investigations, Mayoma who was staying with his brother, got wind of the pending arrest and the bounty on his head flew out of the country in search of a safe haven.
Mayoma who has been in hiding has refused to show or talk to the press as his cell line remains unreachable.
