Digga D speaks out after rumours drill rapper was arrested in Dubai

November 30, 2021

DIGGA D has broken his silence following claims he was arrested in Dubai in connection with a stabbing. 

Rhys Herbert — AKA Digga D — from West London has been in the United Emirates where he has filmed a music video. 

Unsubstantiated rumours started circulating on Twitter on Sunday night that alleged an unknown British rapper stabbed someone in Dubai.

Then people began speculating that Herbert had been arrested by police following the alleged attack.

He is no stranger to trouble and was jailed last year for his role in planning a terrifying machete and knife brawl with a rival gang.

Digga remained quiet yesterday as unfounded speculation mounted.

But today he has released a statement to fans on Instagram. 

He said: “Yes I was arrested and questioned. No, I didn't hurt anyone. Was it marketing for a video?"

Herbert continued: “No. I deleted my pictures before I got arrested. It was just a coincidence.

“Everyone wishing bad on me. Guess what, keep wishing ha, ha, ha.”

Dubai police also confirmed he was not behind bars. 

A spokesperson said: "Dubai police have no one by that name currently in detention."

In videos on social media, Herbert appeared to be living it up in Dubai which provided the location to a music video. 

On his friend’s social media, he appears in a video which is captioned “Digga D buys a monkey on live”.

In fact it is an adult orangutan which is apparently travelling in the back seat of a luxury car. 

In the early hours of Monday, Digga D took to social media and tweeted a clip from a video of his.

In that, there are references to gang violence gun gestures and a reference to “one shot” of a Glock gun which “leaves your head back-spinning”.

The rapper has come under fire for his tracks which some say glorify gang violence. 

Herbert himself was released from prison in May last year after being sentenced to two and a half years for his role in a machete brawl in front of shoppers in central London.

In a landmark ruling, the judge banned Herbert and other members of the 1011 street gang from making videos that glorified or incited violence without police approval under a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

But while cannot specifically refer to real-life violence or rivalries, the gun-obsessed musician can refer to violence generally.
