From Uproxx:

Shaggy may not have been asked to be on the album at all. In fact, the rep reportedly said that it was Shaggy who requested to be included:

“After Rihanna had already gathered all the material for the album, Shaggy contacted her asking to be a part of the album. She explained to him that the album was pretty much completed and they were just working on mixing, mastering, and deciding which songs to actually use. However, she invited him to submit some materials so she could see if it fits with the flow of the album. That was by no means asking for an audition, it was more going out of her way to get him on the album.”

The representative wants Shaggy to be more honest with what really happened between him, Rihanna, and the whole situation.
