According to reports by RedPepper Uganda, Nigerian Singer, Patrick Nnaemeka Okoriebetter known by his stage name ‘Patoranking’, was yesterday afternoon arrested at Entebbe International Airport for failure to adhere to check in rules.
“He failed to adhere to check-in rules and above all he had not secured his entry visa,” said the source who was at the Airport yesterday.
The source further said that Patoranking thought he was too ‘big’ and he would receive VVIP treatment upon arrival. “He was just told to remove his cap for security check-up but he chose not to listen to instructions. He was denied entry and arrested for disobeying lawful check in orders.”
Patoranking who arrived at the Airport at around 16:00hrs, was detained for over 7 hours. After countless times of apologising and begging, he was later released and granted entry visa.
Trying to show that he is a known celebrity, Patoranking first refused to accept entry visa saying he was disrespected and harassed by immigration officers. He later coiled his small tail and headed to Hotel Africana where he addressed journalists.
Reports gathered showed that Patoranking is in Uganda to market his latest music album titled ‘God over everything’.
