Nigerian hip hop rapper Babalola Falemi, popularly known as Sauce Kid or Sinzu has been released from a federal prison in the US.

Back in 2017, it was revealed that he had been serving a two year jail term for stealing $15,388 using stolen credit card numbers in  US.

Sauce Kid had reportedly obtained stolen bank card numbers and information from their owners. He then allegedly encoded the account numbers onto blank plastic cards.

After using an automated system to change account PINs, he was able to withdraw cash from bank ATMS and buy merchandise from stores between July 23 – 26, 2016.

On Sunday, March 25, 2018, a video surfaced on Instagram, captioned “My bro is back!! SINZU”.

In the video, the rapper, clad in a black T-shirt, durag, and a red pant was seen being welcomed home.

Police arrested the rapper with a card encoding device and over $6,000 in cash at the Boise Airport as he was about to board a flight. Part of the charges against him were conspiracy to commit bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Sauce came on the Nigerian music scene in 2005, with an impressive jam, his first ever single ‘Omoge’ featuring the legendary Mike Okri.

In 2006, he dropped his first mixtape ‘Best of Both Worlds: Money Long The Mixtape’, which cemented him a spot in the Nigerian music industry. The mixtape is still regarded as one of the best.
