The Accra Circuit Court has granted Dancehall act Charles Nii Armah Mensah, professionally known as Shatta Wale to self-recognizance bail of GHC 100,000. Also, rapper Medikal has also been granted GHC 100,000 bail. Moreover, he has to produce one more surety who must be a public servant.
A prophet by the name of Jesus Ahuofe prophesied that the Dancehall giant would die on his 37th birthday. Thus, on October 17, 2021. Tossing the doom prophecy into a win, Shatta Wale with his team devised a stunt for clout by faking a shootout and death. For causing fear and panic, the Ghana Police Service pursued him for arrest. The musician reported himself alas when the police failed to locate his location. He pleaded not guilty, as a result, he was remanded and brought to court today.
Normally, the court grants self-recognizance bail to persons who are regarded as prominent in society. These include Chiefs, Members of Parliament and others. Moreover, this comes in situations where the suspect has been charged with a minor offence.
Medikal on the other hand was remanded for 5 days for brandishing a gun on his social media handle. To his ignorance, the act is illegal in the country. Upon his bail, he has to provide a surety. Thus, a person that would guarantee that Medikal will attend his o court hearings after being granted bail. However, his person must be a public servant.
Both artists, Medikal and Shatta Wale are good friends, they are very intimate. This raises eyebrows as to how they went to prison at the same time, granted bail with the same amount and on the same day. However, the most important thing is that justice has been served and they are out to continue their usual routines.
