The UK Border Agency UKBA deported UK Jamaican rapper Cashtastic to Jamaica after the rapper had lived in England for 14 years.

The rapper was deported to Jamaica on March 28.

This move infuriated Top Boy actor Kano who took to twitter to express his anger and frustration on the decision.

Kano a star from channel 4 show said : the decision to remove “a good brother like Cashief” from his community was “wrong”.

UKBA did not give reasons for detaining Cashtastic, real name Cashief Nichols, who was detained by two weeks ago.
Cashtastic first came to Britain 14 years ago, aged six, and lived with his mother. He attended school and has been living in the country ever since.

The 20-year-old, who grew up in Peckham, South London, shocked fans on March 24 when he tweeted: “I’ve been detained/given removal directions by the UKBA.

“They’re saying even though I came to the UK age 6 I have no right to be here.”

Kano wrote on twitter: “This cannot be happening to such a good brother like Cashief. A positive brother in the community. He has lived here since the age of 6 and is now a role model, tax paying professional in the music industry. This is wrong.”

Cashtastic was signed to Universal Records last summer and his debut mixtape Alarm clock was released in February.

Contacted for a comment, a spokesman from the UKBA said they were unable to comment on individual cases but released a statement which read: “When an individual is found to no longer have the right to remain in the UK, we expect them to leave the country voluntarily, but if they fail to do so we will seek to enforce their removal.”

Fans and members of the community have set up a petition to appeal the decision and return the rapper to the UK.

“Let’s get behind Cashtastic and bring back one of this country’s most promising musical talents to the place he deservedly calls home,” a statement reads on the official petition site.
