Booba real name is Elie Yaffa; currently 41 years old has had a successful solo career, selling more than 10 million copies over his career and becoming the most legally downloaded artist in French history.
Kaaris, currently 38 years old, is known as a rap industry in France. His parents were born in Ivory Coast. Booba and Kaaris were close friends in the early 2010s. The two friends did a recording together in the rap song “Kalash” in 2012.
Since then, relations between the two rappers have deteriorated. Three years ago, Booba blamed Kaaris for not supporting him in his “clashes” with rappers Rohff and La Fouine. Since then, things seem to have gotten worse.
Booba was expected this Wednesday night in Spain for a concert in Barcelona. It was while waiting for this flight that the altercation occurred.
