It was earlier reported yesterday that the singer was arrested by SARS officials on his way to the end of the year party of X3M Ideas, the parent company of his label.
The Show Me Love crooner was reportedly manhandled and harassed by operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) on the Island, yesterday, 19th December, 2017. The incident which took place towards the early hours of the evening was reported that he had his phone smashed, preventing a recording of the event.
However, the singer has been released and he has addressed the incident via an Instagram post.
See his post below.
Anyone that truly knows me well knows i am an easy going , non problematic, happy and co -operative individual. Well, I’m not here to talk about myself. I am here to address issues that happens in our society everyday. We live in a society where the government has failed us whether we like it or not. No jobs, fuel scarcity , SARS , Asuu Strike , Nupeng Strike , Name it….. it’s endless .. HARDSHIP… ENDLESS HARDSHIP …. Today I had an encounter that a lot of people go through everyday. People who are heading home after a failed interview, people going home after a night shift , people on their way to get their daily bread but get harassed by people who are the force because of reasons best known to them or maybe because u are a young boy wearing a gold chain or have a beard . Though I won’t deny the existence of great people in the police force that are ready to listen , I still stand by my opinion which is popular amongst the youth and more #ENDSARS Today I learnt that the police force needs deep reform and sensitization. This is not my official statement… my official statement will be out soon Lastly I will like to thank @aleeygiwa , Mr Etim Godwin from J command for stepping in… #EndSars #NoBePhysicalSomething
