Charles Nii Armah Mensah, better known as Shatta Wale, and Samuel Frimpong, better known as Medikal, have been given permission to travel outside of Ghana by a Circuit Court in Accra.
Shatta Wale’s lawyer, Jerry Avenorgbo, and Medikal’s lawyer, Pobbi Banson, took turns in front of Judge Emmanuel Essandoh’s court, pleading with the judge to allow their clients to attend various programs outside the nation during the Christmas season.
In light of this plea, they also asked a lengthy adjournment from the court.
The court of Judge Emmanuel Essandoh, while approving the accused persons’ motions, postponed the hearings until January 25, 2022.
After spending a week in police jail for false publishing, famous dancehall artiste Charles Nii Amarh Mensah, better known as Shatta Wale, was given a self-recognizance release.
When he first appeared in court last week, he pleaded not guilty to publishing fake news and inciting fear and terror.
Three others who appeared in court with him, Kojo Owusu Koranteng, Shatta Wale’s personal assistant, Eric Vanetor, a graphic designer, and Iddrisu Yussif, a beautician, were also charged with abetment of criminal activity and were each granted GHC100,000 bail with one surety, who must be a public servant.
Rapper Medikal, also known as Samuel Adu Frimpong, was granted bail in the amount of GHC100,000.
He also pleaded not guilty to exhibiting weapons and ammunition. The charge stems from claims that Medikal displayed a gun in a Snapchat video that was later uploaded on other social media platforms.
Shatta Wale was arrested by the police on Tuesday, October 19th, for an alleged gunfire attack.
