Police make arrests to stop Fantom from performing at gang party
After hearing that rapper Daniel “Fantom” Darinus was scheduled to perform at a birthday bash for reported gang leaders, police went near his house on Nicolas Street in Port-au-Prince and made several arrests on Tuesday.
Darinus wasn’t among those arrested but said he was at the scene and a police officer ripped his shirt.
“It doesn’t bother me, I have another Gucci shirt on me,” said Darinus on Radio Television Caraibes’ Facebook Live. “If the police don’t want me to go perform then I can’t go perform but it’s my right to please people in the ghettos.”
