| Istanbul | Turkey |
2011: ENZO IKAH (29), Congolese immigrant and refugee (with asylum seeker status from UNHCR), dub-reggae musician has been living in Istanbul, Turkey since August 2009.
He had to leave Democratic Republic of Congo after being sentenced 10 years of prison by followers of President Joseph Kabila. Enzo fled after being tortured (as he claims, he has bribed police officers) and managed to get to Istanbul, Turkey via Nairobi, Kenya. He was denied to cross European Union’s border.
His newly recorded album “Red, Black and White” awaits approval signature in Turkish ministry.
