In June 2021, EX-Q faced legal trouble when he and fellow musician Nutty O were arrested for presenting fake COVID-19 certificates upon their return from South Africa at a Zimbabwean airport. Their case led them to appear before the Harare Magistrates’ Court on June 25, 2021, where they faced fraud allegations. Initially denied bail, their hearing was postponed to June 28, 2021. Eventually, both artists were released on bail, each paying $5,000.
