Hiplife legend Reggie Rockstone has rejected claims that he deliberately poked fun at some Ghanaians who line-up at the American embassy for visas.
The well-respected rapper posted a video on his Instagram page commenting on how Ghanaian hustlers try so hard to secure visas to America.
In the said video, he sarcastically suggested that Ghanaians who want to make money should troop to the American embassy to see how tiring the process is.
He wondered why Ghanaians would be striving to travel outside the country despite knowing the history of the slavery that Americans and Europeans took their forefathers through.
Sections of Ghanaians got offended by Rockstone’s comments and subsequently took him on, with claims surfacing that he intended to mock all persons struggling to obtain visas.
However, the legendary musician had refuted such claims insisting he respects every Ghanaian and will never do such a thing.
In a lengthy statement, Rockstone said the video was meant to be comic rather than mock, and apologized to those who misinterpreted it.
Below is Reggie Rockstone’s full statement (Unedited):
I posted on my page a humour laced video whilst driving past the embassy about how if I was a hustler and a pimp of the bible the sure shot place I would go and hustle would be the embassy since Folx are really about the prayers when it is Visa time! I even gave a comical impression where I acted as the hustler! I did not mock no one! I am very sensitive to Folx feelings and actually an expert of sum sort when it comes to the visa gh story ( first and only Musician to address the issue via music! Yeh bounci Wu visa Ni yah) my comment after this was a generic one about the irony of it all! The fact that we were taken there via the big bad boat ride called slavery and how we are doing all to go back there today! I said "we" so I spoke in general! I then went on to speak on myself and my reservations of going back there! I ended with "to each" and travel and see! The head line says I took a jab and this is not so hence Folx cussing me in the comments section lol! I am in show biz and so I expect this plus years of being who I am has given me an armour so this is not a problem! I am however not an arrogant or insensitive human so I apologised on my page to those who got it wrong from the head line, but truth is that was not de intent and not at all the story if you watch the video! Thank u.
