Big Brother Africa season 9 star, Tayo Faniran, made a live Instagram video to capture his altercation with some policemen in South Africa.

In the short clip making the rounds on social media, the reality star was reportedly stopped by a policeman and eventually told to step into their van and accompany them to the station.

Tayo resisted the officer's attempt to arrest him as he expressed concern that the police van was unmarked, and that he would follow them to the station only if they rode with him in his own car.

The policeman maintained his calm as he called for back-up. The back-up officers arrived and forcefully bundled Tayo into their vehicle as one of them held his neck tightly. See the video below:

Meanwhile, Tayo Faniran recently slammed South African rapper, AKA, for his reaction to his country's loss to Nigeria during the African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

AKA was not too happy with South Africa losing the match to Nigeria as he lamented about how they always lose to them. The rapper also added that he would have preferred if his had country lost to Egypt instead.

The rapper, who was obviously hurt by the loss of the Bafana Bafana, made bold statements that people claimed were to incite and support xenophobia.

Faniran called out the rapper and demanded that he tenders an apology to Nigerians as football should be a game of unity and not of division.
