Mercy Isoyip, popularly known as Descushiel, a Nigerian musician, has apologised to Nigerians and the Nigeria Police Force for incorrectly performing the national anthem during the Conference for Senior Police Officers in Imo State.
Isoyip, who wore a police uniform during the conference, went viral on Monday after she mispronouncing the national anthem during the event.
This drew outrage from netizens, who criticized the singer, who was mistaken for a police woman due to her clothing.
However, in a video on her Instagram page on Tuesday, Descushiel apologised for her errors.
The video was captioned, “I sincerely apologise for the error I made during the recital of the National Anthem, I know such errors are inexcusable.
“My good people of our country, please accept my apology, as well as my assurance that I will be more careful in the future to prevent such incidents from recurring.
“God bless the Nigeria Police Force. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
