Ghanaian UK-based musician and entrepreneur, Fuse ODG, has shared a very disturbing video of how he was recently manhandled by some police officers on the streets in the United Kingdom because of racial profiling.

In the caption he added to the video he shared on his social media pages on Thursday, May 18, 2023, Fuse disclosed that this was not the first time some officers in the UK had treated him this way by virtue of the fact that he is black.

Fuse revealed that initially, he had no plans of sharing the video online because it is quite embarrassing, however, after giving it careful thought, he felt it was only right that he calls out the police officers who did to him and seek justice for the other blacks who goes through similar ordeal every time on the streets of UK.

The ‘Antenna’ hitmaker added that the whole incident that took place on 28th February 2023 in Brixtonx has left him in shock because he cannot still come to terms with the fact that police officers will treat blacks this way despite what happened to George Floyd on May 25, 2020, Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.

He also revealed that a formal complaint has been made with the Metro Police in the UK.

‘I almost didn’t share this incident as firstly, I’m exhausted of seeing videos like this myself as I know a lot of you are. Secondly for my own sense of pride, honestly speaking, it’s just embarrassing. I’m too much of a King to be handled like this! So with the above in mind, what you are watching is actually a censored version of events.

Having taken the time to process the incident and this ongoing problem, there are certain things that I feel must be said:

This incident took place a few months back on 28th Feb 2023. I was dragged out of my car and handcuffed in the middle of the street in Brixton with no warning or explanation. After the incident, I spent 6 hours in A & E due to how tightly they clamped the cuffs on me…(excruciating pain!), as well as suffering neck and back pain for the following weeks.

It’s wild that this is the normal reality for too many of us growing up in this country But even wilder is that, this is still the reality in a post George Floyd world.

In the past months, we have seen so many videos of police officers beating up and even kneeling on our black children in the UK. I know because a lot of the time they come to me for help.

The sad reality is that as a black man living in this system, it doesn’t matter how much money you make or the positive impact that you have on the world, they still only see you as one thing.

This isn’t the first time this has happened to me or @mrhackett1. At one point, it was almost a weekly occurance. The difference is that at this stage in life, we are now in the position to have the resources at our disposal to deal with these issues differently. We have filed a formal complaint with the @metpolice_uk and we are very grateful to @tundeokewale of @UrbanLawyers who has come to stand in the gap for us.

That said, we are not holding our breaths for justice from this system. The real battle is internal…the real battle is won when we don’t let them break our confidence and we maintain our identity and dignity.

Which is why the work we are doing through the music and @schoolofnewafrica is vital. Teaching the next generation to see themselves differently’
