Shatta Wale & Medikal both granted bail of GHC100,000 each

Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale and industry mate, Medikal, have been granted a ¢100,000 bail each.

The duo reappeared before an Accra Circuit Court on Tuesday, October 26, to continue their respective legal battles.

The self-acclaimed dancehall king, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah on October 19, turned himself in after the police had declared him wanted.

The My Level singer, however, was remanded into prison custody for one week.

On the other hand, Medikal, known in real life as Samuel Adu Frimpong, was picked up by the police for brandishing a weapon on social media.

The ‘Risky’ hitmaker on Friday, October 22, was also remanded by an Accra Circuit Court for five days in prison custody although he pleaded not guilty to the charge of unlawful display of arms and ammunition.

Also, Shatta Wale’s coconspirators, Kojo Owusu Koranteng, Idris Yusif, and Eric Venator have been released on bail.

The trio who are being accused of abetment of crime has equally been fined GH₵100,000 each.
