According to an Instagram post from Kodak's account and a YouTube video advertising the show, Kodak Black was scheduled to play an FMU Homecoming show on Saturday February 6. A recap video of the concert shows that the show took place.

Major Michael M. Nunn, the General Counsel/P.I.O. for the Florence County Sheriff’s Office told The FADER over the phone on Tuesday morning that "at some point" Kodak will be transported to Florence County for an arraignment and a bond hearing. It remains unclear when that will happen. Kodak Black is still being held in custody in Broward County, Florida.

According to the South Carolina state house website, a conviction for first degree sexual battery is a crime that is "punishable by imprisonment for not more than thirty years." A rep for Kodak Black did not immediately return a request for comment.
