Kenyan Hip hop artist G Rongi has been stuck in France since January because of a lack of passport. G Rongi communicated the same via Facebook video update where he shared his experience at the Kenyan Embassy in France.
G Rongi apparently applied for a replacement passport over 4 months ago and he hasn’t yet received it. To make matters worse, he claims that the staff at the Embassy have been treating him badly and changing goal posts. As he doesn’t have a passport, he is unable to travel to perform and has already lost opportunities to travel to the US and Sarajevo.
G Rongi is based in France and his latest album is Position ya Power which was released in May 2015. It featured the song Mama Kenya and artists such as Orates Marquez ( Peru), Kosher (UK), Oxy Hart & CRS ( France), Juliani, Abbas Kubaff & Rawbarz (Kenya) & Chaba (Tanzania). He has performed in many countries such as South Africa, India, Norway, France and Tanzania.
In the video he is asking Kenyans to help get his passport or at least help him seek a clarification on why his passport has been delayed. Watch it below.
