I was jailed but it's normal in the U.S - Fantana speaks on theft reports (Watch)

Just after Fantana was introduced this year as a new signee to Rufftown Records, reports surfaced that she is an ex-convict, over a theft case in the U.S

Francine Nyanko Koffi popularly called Fantana is our celebrity style crush for the week.

Speaking on the reports on Peace FM, the “Girls Hate On Girls” singer explained, she is not an ex-convict because she wasn’t sentenced though she served time in jail. She added that jail time is normal because even Jay Z and Cardi B have been jailed before.

According to Fantana, she did not even steal anything but it was a fight with her roommate in school that landed her in a Florida jail for eight hours.

When someone is convicted they serve time. I didn't even step in the courtroom to be convicted. I had a lawyer but I didn't step in the courtroom because I haven't been in trouble before. So I was just in there for less than 8 hours and I came out” she said.
