"There’s no police brutality in Ghana and scrap that your statement that let’s treat our celebrities with respect because no one is above the law in Ghana.I'm not too sure Police will just approach funny face for no crime committed. In as much as y’all want to be treated as such as celebrities try and also understand that there’s a limit to everything that you do, because there’s a law that binds our country."
