Shatta Wale has apologised to the Ghana Police Service for swearing and yelling at a senior police officer who pulled him over for apparently driving an unregistered vehicle.

A video of Shatta Wale seen trying to walk out on the officer  arresting him has been widely circulated on social media.

However, on Monday, March 5, 2018, the award-winning musician said sorry to the police officer via Facebook live video, adding that he has a personal relationship with the police officer who wanted to arrest him.

“I’ll like to apologise 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,” he said.

He continued: “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 apologise for the conduct, for raising my voice and the way I spoke…”

The "Kakai" hitmaker explained that he was not resisting from being  arrested as some are reporting on social media, adding that no one is bigger than the police.

“People said police stopped me and I was resisting from being arrested. 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 apologise to IGP, Regional commander and all his team,” he reiterated.

Narrating what happened, Shatta Wale said: “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.”

He advised Ghanaians not to “give police attitude,” when they meet them at checkpoints. “The police are my friends because I get protected a lot when I do my stadium shows. They stand for me from night to morning and I love that.”
