Sarkodie Reveals How He Was Harassed While Trying To Enter Germany With Italian Visa


African heavyweight and multiple awards winning rapper Michael Owusu Addo, famed on stage as Sarkodie finally reveals how he was embarrassed by an immigration officer.

According to Sarkodie, he was harassed b  a racist immigration officer while attempting to enter Germany with an Italian Visa.

Describing his experience, Sarkodie recounted how  he was visiting his family in Germany and confirmed with the immigration officer that entering the country with an Italian visa wasn’t illegal, but the officer made a remark about Africans being poor before questioning how Sarkodie would be able to afford his expenses.
“There was a situation where I was going to visit my family in Germany and at the immigration, an officer pulled me aside for holding an Italian visa,” he told Vlad TV. I didn’t know it was a crime because it was a Schengen Visa and I could go anywhere in Europe. He pulled me aside and questioned me about why am I using an Italian visa to enter Germany, and I asked if that was wrong. He said ‘no’ but wants to understand why, and I said ‘just because I wanna come to Germany”. Sarkodie asserted.
“And he said straight to my face that ‘I know Africans are poor, so how are you going to take care of yourself while you are here?”. He added.

Sarkodie revealed how angry became and almost lost control.

“And that, I hurled; that one, I can’t take it. That’s stupid. That’s even racist, it’s just you being stupid. I had to put him right. I lost my cool and in fact, communicated my feelings.”

Sarkodie said the encounter made him more aware of racism from that moment on.

“From that they on, I had to pay attention to some certain things. I didn’t take things seriously until that day.”
