The court case involving famed Ghanaian artist Charles Nii Armah Mensah, better known by his stage name Shatta Wale, has been rescheduled.
It may be remembered that the musician is on trial in an Accra Circuit Court after causing panic and anxiety by claiming he had been shot.
The case was deferred after the musician’s lawyer, Jerry Avenogbo, requested that the court grant him and his client’s requests.
In a recent filing to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), the lawyer said that his client was outside of the jurisdiction.
He stated in his submission:
“I formally wrote to the court to inform them of my client’s incapacity to appear.” [inline_related_posts title=”You Might Be Interested In” title_align=”left” style=”list” number=”1″ align=”none” ids=”” by=”categories” orderby=”rand” order=”DESC” hide_thumb=”no” thumb_right=”no” views=”no” date=”yes” grid_columns=”2″ post_type=”” tax=””]

Joe Mettle, a multi-award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician, has responded to his Artiste of the Year nomination.
In a recent contribution to the prominent Ghanaian radio station Hitz FM, he expressed his thoughts on the subject.
In an interview with Andy Dosty, a well-known Ghanaian radio show host, he said:
“I didn’t submit a nomination for Artiste of the Year. That was handled by my manager. That’s probably why it caught me off guard.
I believe I read a comment asking if the award belonged to me or not. They have a set of criteria for nominating musicians, and if the organizers believe you fit into one of those categories, you will be nominated.”
