BEBE EXCLUSIVE: What No Body Told You about Bebe Cool’s Visit to South Africa Is That, He was Detained at Oliver Thambo Airport for Three Hours
By Jacko Davei 1st, March 2013
Though many fans who saw pictures of the arrival of singer Bebe Cool in South Africa yesterday, thought it was a safe and uninterrupted trip, we are afraid you missed the story behind the real story.
The ‘Boggolako’ star who is in SA for the Miss East Africa show slated for Saturday night was, together with his wife Zuena Kirema and baby, nearly deported back home over lack of proper travel documents.
We can exclusively confirm that ‘Big Size’ musician, who jetted out of Entebbe on Thursday morning, managed reached Jomo Kenyatta Airport and continued without any incident. However, the embarrassment was announced at the Oliver Tambo airport when, immigration officials shocked him with a declaration that he was illegally in the place as him and family lacked Visas to access Jacob Zuma’s land.
Some of his hosts, fashion star Stella Nankya of Star QT and Shaffik Katumba aka Katsha who, had been camping at the airport to receive the star, kept on peeping and wondering what had gone amiss. It sooner downed on them that Bebe had not bothered to confirm the approval status of his party Visa applications.
Embarrassed, desperate and regretful, Bebe Cool was forced to coil his balls for close to three hours as Nankya fixed what our naughty pries termed as VEM (Visa Embarrassment Melee). Lastly but after gallons of sweat were lost, Nankya succeeded to rescue Bebe & Co. “It is true we had some serious issues but it was solved,” Katsha confirmed to us last evening.
Yes, this was solved but to avoid more such embarrassment, our society desk suggests that the ‘Ndiisa Buti’ star ought to hire a Travel Planner agent.
