Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, the singer popularly known as Skales, has revealed that he passionately hates the Nigerian Police.
He explained that his hate for the law enforcement agency stems from his experience of being locked up with his former manager “unjustly” as it was over a minor issue.
The ‘Shake Body’ crooner said he was detained in a cell for more than 24 hours before some prominent persons intervened and secured their release from police custody.
Skales recounted the incident while being interviewed by broadcasters, Victoria Gure and Folasade Abimbola in the latest episode of The Time podcast.
Skales said; “I was locked up one time. Me and my manager were locked up. It was actually my ex-manager who was supposed to be locked up, but I was like, it makes no sense that my manager would be locked up because of the issue I’m also involved in, and I will just be quiet.
“So, I went to the police station. And you know, I hate Nigerian police. I hate them. I want them to know that I hate them passionately. I was locked up for no reason over one small thing. I was in there for like 24 hours.
“I wasn’t supposed to be there so the person that was having the issue with my manager when he realised I was also part of it…. God bless Paulo of Upturn and Personal and my current manager, Kolatunez, they pulled strings and the whole issue was resolved.”
