Dancehall star Popcaan is stirring quite the chaos among fans in Ghana since his arrival last week, and in one instance, this has caused security to fire a shot to curb their enthusiasm.
As the Unruly Boss made his way through several locales in a G Wagon SUV recently, a few overzealous fans simply couldn’t contain their excitement and decided to hop onto the vehicle’s extremities while it was still on the move.
The Jamaican deejay shared the crazed moment on Instagram in two video clips yesterday, which he captioned, “Before and after
The first showed the men standing on the truck’s rear bumper and wheelhouse while cheering loudly. “Ah weh di bombol@@t this! The man dem take ova Sledge [his driver’s] van,” Poppy was heard saying while laughing at their audacity.
In another video clip, security personnel who were traveling directly behind the celebrity’s vehicle, honked their horn repeatedly and were heard yelling at the men to “get down” but when they didn’t take heed, proceeded to fire off a shot. This caused the men to immediately jump off the truck and flee.
The Family deejay has been “touring Africa” with his ‘SLG Squad’ for the last few days, making stops along the way to visit with locals, and check out the sites – and today headed to Goldridge IGR (Istanbul Gold Refinery).
Together with his entourage, Popcaan is making heads turn by driving around in a fleet of expensive whips. From his bright yellow Lamborghini, a Mercedes SL to a G-Wagon, they are a hard bunch to miss and it’s clearly sending his African fan base crazy.
It’s been over a year since the Dancehall deejay visited the motherland.
In January 2020, his ground-kissing arrival in Ghana caused pandemonium among fans who came out to greet him at the airport. The St. Thomas native was swarmed by a score of fans and even airport workers chanting “Unruly Popcaan” as they bombarded his team trying to snap photos and record videos of the star.
According to the deejay, he’s been planning this trip for some time now and revealed he would be launching his fifth studio album when he arrived in Ghana. With the release of the first single Superior, off his upcoming LP last week, the time is definitely drawing close.
Poppy is due back in court in Jamaica on November 4 to answer several traffic charges.
