Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has apologized for his altercation with a Police Man last weekend.
Read excerpts of what Wale said below.
“My car wasn’t stopped, it was my G Wagon that was stopped and I went down to talk to the police because they are human beings like us.”
“I’ll like to apologize to the police, the entire corporate police body. Ghana Police has been so nice to me. I don’t want anybody to tarnish my image within that fold. Not only Ghana Police but the whole governmental body has been really nice to me. I don’t really want things to go down like the way people are portraying things.”
“This policeman we are talking about is my uncle, that’s how I call him. He has also helped me in life before. Yes, I will apologize for the conduct, for raising my voice and the way I spoke…”
“People said police stopped me and I was resisting arrest. No, when the policeman stops you, you can’t say you won’t stop; you are not higher than the policeman because you are a civilian.”
“He has the highest power and the highest authority, so, people should stop portraying that because Shatta Wale, ‘I’m not like that. I want to apologize to IGP, Regional commander and all his team.”
“I get protected a lot when I do my stadium shows. They stand for me from night to morning and I love that.”
