Controversial hiplife artiste, Kwaw Kese, who was arrested by the

police in Kumasi for allegedly smoking cannabis in public has been

denied bail once more.

This is the second failed attempt to obtain bail.

The rapper appeared in court Monday morning hoping to secure bail

after the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court, presided

over by Judge William Boampong, remanded him into prison custody on

his first appearance on November 24.

The controversial rapper was arrested by the police in Kumasi on

Saturday, November 22 for allegedly smoking cannabis in public.

The court remanded him at the Kumasi Central Prison to reappear on

Monday, December 8 after prosecutors argued that they were still

investigating the matter.

Luv FM's Erastus Asare Donkor, who was in court, said the Judge

refused to grant Kwaw Kese bail, who was brought to court at 8:45am in

a taxi by two police officers, on the grounds that the use of

narcotics is a non-bailable offence.

Kwaw Kese's lawyer, Kwasi Boaitey argued that the denial of bail is

setting a bad precedence for the legal system.

The packed KMA Circuit Court had some well-known faces; including

Pastor Lord Kenya, Edem, Guru, and Tic Tac in attendance.
