A news report published by Punch on Sunday, January 8, 2016, described the singer as someone with an undesirable attitude, who needs some anger management lessons.

The singer's harsh response to the interview request was so shocking even for one of his aides, who had to tender an apology on his behalf.

"Sunday Scoop recently ran into the controversial entertainer recently and his attitude left a lot to be desired.

"He insulted our correspondent when he was asked for an interview, and it is apparent that he needs to attend anger-management classes.

"Put off by his saucy attitude, one of his aides had to apologise on his behalf,"  Punch News reported.
