Shatta Wale’s recent remarks regarding the 2014 murder of Fennec Okyere prompted artist manager Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, also known as Bulldog or Bullgod, to file a writ against the musician.
The writ, which was submitted on Monday, November 7, asks the court to, among other things, order Shatta Wale to publish a retraction of his “defamatory” words and to apologize without reservation for seven straight days.
Bulldog further demands that his former artist pay general, special, and punitive damages “for the malicious publication of falsehood against the Plaintiff.”
This comes after Shatta Wale’s recent Facebook post about how his former manager told him in 2014 about a plot to kill Mr Okyere.
Since then, the Ghana Police Service’s Cold Case Unit has invited Shatta Wale, real name Charles Nii Armah Jr., for questioning.
Bulldog claims in his legal filing that Shatta Wale’s recent publication implies that he (Bulldog) is “a criminal gangster and a danger to society and ought to be in jail (rather than walk freely in the streets)”.
