Shatta Wale, a dancehall performer, has apologized to a road contractor with whom he had a fight on Monday, May 31, 2021.
The singer expressed regret in a video that his quest for a proper road infrastructure for his town had ended on such a sad note.
“The person in question is my father, a friend, and someone I've always wanted to meet; it's such a shame things had to turn out this way. I'd also like to apologize to Kennedy (the project engineer) for everything that went wrong. I'm confident he'll find room in his heart to forgive me.”
This follows Kenney Acquah, a road contractor, accusing the dancehall artiste and his goons of attacking him and his workers in Adjiringanor, Accra.
According to the engineer on site, the artiste was enraged because the road work was not extended to his office.
He said in an interview with Hitz FM that Shatta Wale dispatched some men on motorcycles to stop them from working. Following that, the men assaulted him and a few other workers.
Mr Acquah informed Andy Dosty that after attending the hospital to heal the injuries he got as a result of the attack, he filed a report at the East Legon police station.
Shatta Wale also advised bloggers to stop spreading fake news.
He stated that, contrary to popular belief, he did not pay the contractors who worked on the road leading to his office.
According to JoyNews sources, the East Legon police station's divisional commander, Kwame Gyasi, has requested a probe into the situation.
According to him, the police will arrest Shatta Wale if he does not report to the police station as promised by his father, Mr Charles Mensah Snr.
