It was reported some few days ago that popular Ghanaian dance hall singer Shatta Wale was arrested by the police in Ghana over an altercation he had with policemen that stopped his vehicle.
The artiste has however come out to explain why he took the action and according to him, he reacted to the policeman’s claim that he is a rascal.
Shatta Walewas captured in a video exchanging words with the policeman at East Legon. In the video, the police officer is seen ordering the artiste and his friends to get back into their cars and follow him to the police station.
Shatta Wale, after a failed attempt to get the policeman to let him and his squad go, got angry, and started shouting at the officer for dealing with a public figure like him in that manner.
But speaking onPeace FM’s Entertainment Review, Shatta Walehowever denied ever getting arrested. He explained that the policeman stopped his G-Wagon vehicle which he had sent someone to go and wash so he went to the scene after being informed about it.
In his words:
“It got to a point people were coming around, people don’t know the relationship I have with him so he actually used the word you these rascals and I said oh, uncle, you’re calling me rascal, that’s when I got pissed. I was like let’s leave the car keys with him, he can even keep the car and drive because I love him so much.
“I don’t want the word rascal, people were coming around and I didn’t want them to hear him call me a rascal and then the next thing you see and hear, my story will be all over the media. That Policeman is no person people should get worried about because he’s my man,”
