The former manager of a Ghanaian dancehall act filed a lawsuit against the musician after making some incriminating charges that Bullgod was involved in the killing of Fennec Okyere.
Bullgod allegedly claimed that Former President Mahama once ordered him to find gunmen for him, according to Shatta Wale.
Bullgod hauled Shatta Wale into court as a result, but the rapper is unconcerned by the legal proceedings. Shatta wale made light of the situation while creating a song about it in a video that was posted on social media.
In the video, Shatta Wale can be heard singing “we dey go court” while giggling.
The writ filed by Bulldog’s Lawyer, Dr. Justice Srem-Sai indicated that these statements sought to suggest that his client planned, affected, or had a hand in Mr. Okyere’s death. In a writ filed at the Accra High Court, Bullgod filed the writ under his government name, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson is seeking damages for the pronouncements that he considers defamatory and also malicious against him by the defendant.
He was listed as the plaintiff, and Shatta Wale alias Bandana, also known as Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., was listed as the defendant.
Shatta Wale’s accusations also implied that “the Plaintiff is a criminal thug and a danger to society and ought to be in jail,” according to the writ (rather than walk freely in the streets).
“That the public and law enforcement authorities should regard his (the Defendant’s) allegations in the publication as true, accurate, and important.”
The defamation claim also addressed remarks made by Shatta Wale in since-deleted Facebook posts about John Dramani Mahama and Nana Akufo-Addo.
