Disruption of IGP-Celebrities Meeting: Shatta Wale explains his side of the story

Must Read

Self acclaimed  dancehall king, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known as  Shatta Wale, has explained what led to the misunderstanding between himself and a police officer during a meeting between the Inspector General of Police and creative arts players on Wednesday.

Though Shatta Wale rendered an unqualified apology to the IGP, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, the ‘Melissa’ hit maker has indicated that the cause of his action was triggered by an officer who was disrespectful to him.

“I saw people taking out their phones, and nobody was talking to them, so I felt ‘let me just take my phone because Fred Amugi (actor) has been one of my greatest actors that I really want to do a movie with. So when he was talking, I felt what he was saying was so important to me that I had to keep it for myself.

“I took a video, and one of the police officers came and was like ‘phones are not allowed’, but you know people were taking pictures before I came, so I felt like it was a bit rude,” he said.

He explained further that, “where I was even coming from, someone had stolen my hundred bags of cement, and organisation had gone on before I got there, so the tempers were high a bit; that’s why I got to apologise.”

Shatta Wale was dragged out of the meeting by some police officers after he shouted at the Police boss after he was told not to take photos or videos of the proceedings, describing the action as unfair.
