A popular Nigerian producer, Sarz, who has on multiple occassions worked with Starboy boss, Wizkid, has joined other celebrities who have shared their encounters with the Police unit.
Below is how he narrated his story on his Twitter page;
“Hello everybody, the Sarz you don’t want to end is here again. Something just happened right now. I got stopped by SARS So I was driving alone and a Toyota Sienna with 6 heavily armed men pulled up in front of me… 3 of them came down and told me to park!! They asked for my license. Luckily for me I forgot it.
They entered the car and told me to just drive. I drove…They asked for my ID card and I told them I don’t have an ID one of them said “we go show you something.”
Since I didn’t have my license, I didn’t want to be aggressive with my rights so I switched profiles to “your friendly neighborhood guyman”. At this point one of them took my phone and was searching it then he asked where I work.
I told him I’m a popular music producer. and I work for myself. He said “Na by popular!?!? We de go station we will impound this car ” (I’m still driving off course btw). Finally one of them said “e be like say I don see your face true true for television…Wetin be your name.”
I said Sarz on the beat and one of them hit me lightly on my shoulder and said ” So na you be the fake Sars ” it was all smiles for here . they said we are all doing the same work and I should find something for them cos the sun was hot…..I have them some change.
They said next time make sure you carry your license and I should greet starboy. I said ok no p.”
