A tall list of Ghanaian celebrities and stakeholders in the creative arts industry honoured an invitation by the Inspector-General of Police, George Akufo Dampare at the police quarters in Accra on Wednesday, November 9, 2021.
Present at the event were Kuami Eugene, Afia Schwarzenegger, A-Plus, Kofi Okyere Darko, John Dumelo Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Abeiku Santana, Roger Quartey.
Others include Fameye, Van Vicker, Angel Town, Samini, Bullgod, Mercy Asiedu, Agya Koo and many more.
Unfortunately, the occasion was marked by some level of resentment from dancehall artiste Shatta Wale after a police officer made him feel uncomfortable during the meeting.
While at the conference room, Shatta Wale decided to take out his phone and use but he was quickly stopped by one of the policemen present.
In a viral video making the rounds on social media, Shatta Wale is seen confronting a police officer to ask why he was asked to put aside his phone when his colleagues were allowed to use theirs.
