The 84 year-old ska singer is also demanding an apology from his estranged daughter and wants her to withdraw defamatory comments she allegedly made on an online platform.

“I am innocent,” the Tougher than Tough singer told DancehallMag. “I just want to clear my name, and she needs to put out an apology and say ‘I am sorry to say that, nothing no go so’”

Ganga-Singh believes an apology, especially a timely one, may neutralize the harm caused, but an apology does not guarantee that a lawsuit will be avoided.
