Mozambicans are reacting to what appears to have been the arrest yesterday of controversial and talented MC Azagaia [1]. While there is no official news, some of his 4,600+ fans showed their support on Facebook [2] and have created a “Free Azagaia [3]” event. The rapper was questioned in 2008 by police, who suggested he encouraged rioters.
