Dancehall act Shatta Wale has come out with an explanation for his reaction to police officers amid an altercation that was captured in a short video circulating on social media.
The musician born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr. indicated that one of the law enforcement officers called him a rascal, a description he deems very offensive.
In a video that has gone viral, the self-acclaimed Dancehall King is captured live engaged in a hot exchange of words with a policeman at East Legon.
The police officer is seen ordering the artiste and his friends to get into their cars and follow him to the police station in the recording.
Shatta, after unsuccessful attempts to persuade policeman to let him and his friends go, flared up, raining words on the police officer for dealing with a public figure like him in such a manner.
Hours after the video of Shatta and Police officer had gone viral, news broke that the woman who recorded the altercation was arrested but had subsequently been granted bail.
