Ghana's Dancehall veteran, Shatta Wale recently disrupted the normalcy at a road construction project site at Adjiringanor on Monday morning. He has however come out to say that since the police did not arrest him that means that he did not commit any crime.
Shatta Wale, who had earlier on apologized for his actions, admitted that he was not above the Ghanaian law and that if he had committed any crime, he would have been already arrested.
Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Shatta explained that his actions were prompted by the road contractors not extending the road to his office, giving people within that locality a good road network.
He said, "There were policemen there; if I did anything wrong, I should be arrested. No one is above the law in Ghana. So I have done this to my area, fought for my people in the area so we can get a good road; what is wrong with it?"
Meanwhile, there is a video on social media of the king of African dance hall music Shatta Wale expressing regrets for the unfortunate occurrence.
He said: "The man in question is someone that I know and have always wanted to meet. It is so unfortunate that things have to happen this way…I also want to apologize to Kennedy for everything that happened, and I hope he finds a place in his heart to forgive me. It is Ghana, and we are one people. I believe God takes care of the rest.”
