Gola captioned the video:
"Watch until the end. I told you on my Live At The Apollo set that we as Africans don’t do anything without greeting first."
The cop asks the man in the video if he is refusing to show his licence. The man responds by demanding that the officer apologise.
According to the taxi driver, the cop called him an "a**hole".
Gola added in another post that it's not okay for anyone, not even cops, to call someone else names.

Twitter user, @FireWaya, commentedc
"I stand firmly behind the taxi driver, I'd do the same, you can't just come ask for my license without greeting me and even worst insult me. Let me not pull a race card. # greet first baba."
