A young rapper and critic of Democratic Republic
of Congo President Joseph Kabila has been “missing” since Wednesday, a
spokesperson for the singer told AFP on Saturday.
“Bob Elvis Masudi has been missing since Wednesday when he
was on his way to his producer’s home in preparation for the release of
his new album ‘Anti-mediocrity'”, spokesman Willy Kanyinda said.
“The family has not seen him since Wednesday night, he can’t be
reached on his phone, and even though he’s a social media addict, he is
no longer active online. Hence our concern,” said Kanyinda.
Kinshasa police chief Sylvano Kasongo told AFP he was “surprised by this affair”.
“Nobody in his family… has reported his disappearance to police,” he said.
