Michael Dapaah stepped into BBC Radio 1Xtra with a friend to promote his new single titled Balance. The scene went wrong after the radio presenter Charlie Sloth was allegedly said to have disrespected Michael Dapaah. According to him, Charlie Sloth just wasn’t giving him the shot.

“The ting goes skrrrahh, pap, pap, ka-ka-ka Skidiki-pap-pap, and a pu-pu-pudrrrr-boom Skya, du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun Poom, poom, you dun know”
