A week ago, a video circulating on social media indicated that Ghanaian gospel Sonnie Badu had been arrested for wrong possessing of a gun in the United Kingdom.
In the said video, the musician is seen in handcuffs and seated in a police vehicle with a Police Officer.Some bloggers picked up the story and reported that the “Baba” singer had been arrested.
However, the man of God broke his silence and revealed that the arrest was a scene in his upcoming music video titled “I Hail You”. He also added that he intentionally sat down quietly to observe how some bloggers were causing fear and panic by reporting that he had been arrested.
In a long Instagram post, the man of God chastised as well as advised “young” bloggers to stop “expressing joy over someone’s downfall”:
“Dear “young” bloggers, (note the word young) because I believe a more matured person will not express unnecessary excitement over another’s misery. I have had to sit quietly by the advise of my management team just to observe and watch you cause panic / fear and total mayhem on social media. Well, to those of you who wish me ill, SHAME on you as the video you’re circulating is part of a video shoot for my song #IHailYou. My question to you though is “what did you achieve” by expressing joy over someone’s downfall? Did your quest draw more viewers / followers to your social media platforms? Just so you know it was my image and it’s costly so guess who benefited at the end of the day. The adage is true that bad news travels quicker than one can imagine. To all my well wishers out there, I love and appreciate you very much. My love also goes to my ill wishers too but do bear in mind that if you’re truly waiting for some bad news about me, it will be an eternal wait on your part…. #IHailYou will be released on 1/01/19 …. Look out for the video and be blessed by it. It’s a powerful concept.. #SonnieBadu #IHailYou#officialVideo @uvi_orogun”
