Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, was fined GHC2,000 by the Accra Circuit Court for making a false claim that he had been shot in October of last year.

Wale had earlier pleaded not guilty to the crime, but today changed his plea after his attorneys pleaded with the court to show mercy and reduce his punishment.

Shatta Wale will serve a three-month prison sentence if the fine is not paid.

According to media reports from Monday, October 18, 2021, Shatta Wale may have been shot by some unidentified gunmen. According to reports, his personal assistant Nana Dhope confirmed to the media that the incident really did happen in East Legon.

According to the report, Nana Dhope claimed that Shatta Wale was receiving care at an unidentified hospital after he managed to flee from his assailants.

When the police “launched an investigation into the matter, including contacting some of his close friends and family members, all of them claim not to have knowledge of his whereabouts or the alleged incident,” the case was closed.

A few hours later, Shatta Wale claimed in a social media post that he staged the assault due to the death prophecy made by Stephen Akwasi, better known as Jesus Ahuofe, the founder and head of New Life Kingdom Chapel International.

“The statement made by this false prophet has gotten me in a mood of violence since no one in this country cares. So the police of this country want to tell me none of them saw those threatening statements online to take action?” he asked.

“This pastor said 18th October Shatta Wale will be shot and you want to tell me you didn’t see from your cyber-crime department nor did u hear or come across anything like that online? If my life can be threatened and there is no law to take action on that then I guess I will do what is right in the eyes of God”, Shatta Wale noted.

He apologised to his fans who were affected by his hoax but was arrested by the police after he turned himself in and spent two nights in police custody.
