"So everyone should forgive everyone,” Stonebwoy pleaded.
Stonebwoy's message to Dampare on Shatta Wale's case
Stonebwoy is pleading with the Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare to forgive the leader of Shatta Movement for whatever offence he has committed.
The Afropop, Dancehall and Reggae artiste says even though the police’s move is an indication of getting institutions to work, whatever his colleague and brother, Shatta Wale, has suffered is enough to deter future incidents.
He was responding to a question posed to him on his take on Shatta’s arrest when Captain Smart hosted him on Onua TV/FM's ‘Maakye’, joined by TV3’s Cookie.
Stonebwoy said he believes the IGP's upcoming meeting with the industry players will play a pivotal role on what needs to be done moving forward.
“He (IGP) is doing things that will put things in order for the future. They need to give us the benefit of the doubt, give us the caution, educate us so that when someone flouts it later, then we take it from there. So everyone should forgive everyone,” he pleaded.
Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in showbiz circles as Shatta Wale was arrested by the Ghana Police Service after he turned himself in on October 19, 2021.
He was arrested for faking reports that he was shot by some unknown gunmen on Monday, October 18.
The police had earlier arrested two other pereons who spread false information in connection with the alleged gun attack on Shatta Wale.
The two were the artiste’s Public Relations Manager, Kojo Owusu Koranteng, also known as Nana Dope and Eric Venator, alias Gangee.
They were arrested on grounds of having the intention to cause fear and panic among the public.
Shatta Wale, prior to his arrest in a lengthy Facebook post, apologised to his fans and people who had been affected by the prank.
According to him, he took the phones of the team members and made the fake post referencing a prophecy that was made by a preacher that he would be shot dead on October 18, 2021.
