After the Shatta Wale received a fine of GHc2,000 from a court for the publication of false news marking an end to his trial, his reaction was gratefulness to God.
In a Facebook post, the dancehall artiste thanked God.
“Thank you Lord Am grateful !!”, he said.
His fine came after he changed his plea in court today, from “Not Guilty” to “Guilty”, a similar approach his counterpart, rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong known as Medikal used in the case of brandishing a weapon.
If the dancehall artist fails to pay the fine, he risks three months of imprisonment.
On October 18, 2021, the news went around that the dancehall artiste had been shot by some gunmen and had been rushed to a hospital, a piece of news that turned out to be untrue.
The musician later said he made that up to cause the arrest of Head Pastor of the New Life Kingdom Chapel International, Bishop Stephen Kwesi Appiah, known as Jesus Ahuofe who prophesied that the musician will be shot on 18th October 2021.
Following this, the police launched an investigation and declared Shatta Wale wanted.
On October 19, 2021, the musician turned himself in and got arrested.
He was arraigned in court the next day where he pleaded not guilty to the publication of false news and got remanded into police custody.
On 26th October 2022, a week later, he was granted a self-recognisance bail to the tune of GH¢100,000.
