The statement of claim deposed by Charterhouse alleges that Shatta
Wale uploaded defamatory statements on his Facebook page on the 23rd
and 24th of September, 2014.
The Plaintiffs are also praying the High Court to order Shatta Wale to
retract those statements and apologize through a number of media
The ultimate demand by the Plaintiffs to the court is the 'slapping'
of a whopping Ten million Ghana cedis (Ghs10,000,000) to Shatta Wale
as damages caused after the publication of those articles.
Speaking to Citi News, the manager of Shatta Wale, Lawerence Nana
Asiamah Hanson also known as Bulldog said Shatta Wale was calm and
presently recorded songs in the studio and that fans should not worry.
"We have received the writ so obviously it's without lawyers that's
what I can tell you. I'm sure our lawyers will do justice to whatever
it is… my lawyers will advise as to the next line of action," he said.
According to him, the camp of Shatta Wale is calm and going about
their "business as usual. He is in the studio as we speak."
When asked if Shatta Wale was disappointed in his actions, he
responded by saying that "why would you be disappointed or hurt if you
spoke your mind or the truth?".
After news had broken that Shatta Wale had been sued, musician Samini
took a dig at him on Twitter, asking his fans to help him convert GHS
10 million into dollars.
He tweeted, '#Helooooooo ….Eii guys. Pls help me convert GHS10m into
USD $$wai. What's the current rate kraa? #iskoki just #violate and get
But, Bulldog has replied that sublime tweet with a Facebook post,
referring to Samini as a retired musician, "Did I see a post by a
retired musician laughing at an active musician who is fighting for
the rights of all musicians?
"Wow!!! When we are fighting for a just cause, some dumb people are
laughing because they are "high" on some substance.
