Kweku Osei Koranteng Asiedu, an entertainment critic, has criticized the state for the way it has treated the case of Funny Face, Shatta Wale, and Medikal. Speaking on TV3 News Night, Mr. Kweku Koranteng said the approach used by the state to punish the celebrities for what they have done is wrong. He suggested that one-week community service would have been more ideal than the remand judgment passed by the court.
Kweku Koranteng, further stressed that the government must be circumspect with the way it handles the issues of the celebrities since Shatta Wale, Medikal, and Funny Face are role models to many of the youth in the country. He cautioned that, if they are not treated right, it may have dire consequences on the nation. To him, Ghana stands to lose for portraying our celebrities like thugs before the international community.
He continued by saying it is unfair for the government to come after these stars and treat them in this manner as the government has not invested a dime in them. He added that the stars built the brand from scratch without any support from the state. He bemoaned why Medikal is in police custody, meanwhile, he got shows to perform at over the weekend. Medikal having to refund monies paid him for not honoring his performance is of great concern to Mr. Kweku Koranteng; a situation he described as unfortunate.
