According to Negus, “Elephant Man is a hundred percent correct, and to you Elephant Man, one of my top 5 deejays dead or alive, I apologise sincerely for anything or any video that I’ve created that left a bad taste in your mouth. My intention was just to make people laugh, not to hurt anyone’s feelings. I think__ No! I know; I got lost in the likes and comments and hundreds and thousands of views. I never once stopped to think how would this make Elephant Man feel….”
Further in the narrative, annexing that “Elephant Man to me is like Vybz Kartel is to a lot of people.”
