Singer Adekunle Temitope, popularly known as Small Doctor has finally explained the circumstances that led to his arrest by the Nigeria Police.
He said, “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.”
Small Doctor insisted that he had a licence to carry a gun, saying that he was stunned when he later read that he was in possession of illegal firearms.
He added, “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.” He insisted that there was no way the fracas would affect his show slated for Sunday, as all preparations had been concluded.
“My issue with the Police is even a major reason for people to attend my Sunday show.
“There is no need to panic and we have invested heavily in the security of lives and property,” he maintained.
The Penalty crooner, explaining why he settled for Agege Stadium in Lagos for his debut concert, stated, “I believe I am exceptional and people around me are exceptional, too.
“I am a man of the people and I believe I should give back to my society. They have been the one supporting me from the outset. I want them to feel important and happy.
“Eko Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, cannot even handle the crowd I want to entertain,” he added.
