On Wednesday afternoon, the musician got embroiled in an incident with members of the Nigeria Police Force.
In a video that has now gone viral, the musician can be seen shirtless, wearing only a singlet, yelling and assaulting the officers who appear to have blocked his vehicle.
“My since-deleted tweet stating that I spat in a police officer’s face was an idiomatic expression to say I disrespected a police officer to his face and not the literal way people may have taken it on social media. I do not support violence or abuse against the police in any form,” he tweeted.
“Yesterday I was in a life-threatening situation which caused me to lash out due to the physical assault on me by some policemen who have now been brought to book. However, I just want to focus on what’s important to me, my music. Thank you for all the love and concern.”
It is not clear how or why the musician got into the heated argument with the police officers.
Even so, this is not the first time that police have been after a Nigerian star.
The police made an announcement that they would make an investigation on the incident.
