Flamboyant rapper Prezzo was on Saturday night arrested after gun drama at a city estate. Prezzo whose real name is Jackson Makini is said to have drawn a gun and threatened a motorist who is a resident of Nyayo Embakasi. According to a statement posted on the neighbourhood’s Facebook page, the musician is suspected to have been under the influence of unknown substances when he drew a gun and tried to force himself into a vehicle whose driver resisted, prompting the confrontation.” “Prezzo high on hard drugs tried to hijack a resident of Nyayo estate. Now arrested and booked into Embakasi police station (sic). He was visiting house where he emerged while stoned. He was threatening Nyayo Estate guards with guns,” read the post.
The former Big Brother finalist was contained by the guards who handed him over to the Embakasi Police station who would not confirm if they had the self-proclaimed King of Bling as their guest. Prezzo has in the past been involved in brawls which have involved guns. No injuries were reported in the twilight incident with residents hailing their security guards exhorting would-be guests to the gated estate to be on their best behaviour.
