Celebrities might do anything to be the gist of the moment but bad publicity is better avoided. In a bid to keep a clean reputation, entertainers often try to explain their side of things after they have been involved in bad news.
Nigerian music star, Adekunle Temitope better known as Small Doctor, was arrested on Monday, December 3, for the allegedly possessing illegal firearm as well as threatening harm on a policeman.
Shortly after he was arrested alongside three other suspects, the music star was released. Speaking with the Punch, the Penalty star explained that his arrest was a case of misunderstanding. He further revealed that he would not knowingly be involved in any illegal act.
He said: “It was a case of misunderstanding and everything is settled.
“My fans need to know that I will not get involved in any illegality. The younger ones look up to me for hope and I will never let them down.”
Speaking further, the music star explained that he is actually licensed to carry a gun, contrary to several reports.
He said: “As I said earlier, I cannot be involved in any illegal activity. There is no way I will hold a firearm without having a licence.”
Despite his recent case with the law, Small Doctor explained that he is still going strong as his upcoming concert slated for December 9, would still hold.
