Charles Nii Armah, better known by his stage name Shatta Wale, has reacted to his GH2,000 court fine after pleading guilty for false publication.
The controversial artist was given this verdict after entering a guilty plea to spreading false information about a shooting incident against him on social media in October 2021.
According to Graphic Online, Shatta Wale pleaded guilty instead of not guilty before His Worship, Emmanuel Essandoh of the Circuit Court 4.
He will serve three three (3) months in prison if the fine is not paid.
The “On God” hitmaker faked a gun attack in response to a preacher’s prediction that he will be shot dead on October 18, 2021, and was subsequently detained for “creating fear and panic.”
He claimed that in order to create the fake post, he used the phones of his team members.
On the other hand, the prosecution, which was headed by ASP Maxwell Oppong, did not object to the change in plea.
Shatta Wale has reacted to his GH2,000 court fine in a new video after reappearing in court today, June 29, 2022.
The African dancehall king was spotted in self-recorded video, grooving out to his songs while driving to an unknown location with his buddy Kevin Roy.
According to the songs he was jamming on, Shatta Wale is subtly encouraging the critics to be ready for his upcoming album.
Additionally, he praises his private lawyer and expresses gratitude to everyone who attended the court hearing in his support.
“FREE AT LAST 🙏
Being thankful and expressing gratitude is an important part of being happy in life. I wish to take this opportunity to say thank you to my Lawyer , Jerry, the Judge , Shatta Movement and the entire nation for the support through these trying times. #OnGod ❤️🙏🙏 “ – he said
