Bulldog drags Shatta Wale to court for defamation



Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has been sued by his former manager, Mr Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bullgod, for defamation, after the musician threatened to expose his alleged involvement in the death of late artiste manager Fennec Okyere in a social media post on Wednesday, 2 November 2022.

In the writ filed at an Accra High Court, Bullgod’s lawyers indicated that these statements seek to suggest that the plaintiff planned, effected or had a hand in Mr Okyere’s death.

They added that Shatta Wale’s claims also meant “that the plaintiff is a criminal gangster and a danger to society and ought to be in jail (rather than walk freely in the streets). Thus, Bullgod is seeking a declaration from the court that these statements and others highlighted in the suit are defamatory and malicious.”

He is also praying the court to order Shatta Wale to retract his allegations and apologise to him “on all his social media pages or accounts, on seven consecutive days to be vetted and approved by the Plaintiff’s lawyers.”

He is also seeking a perpetual injunction that hinders Shatta Wale from publishing any defamatory comments against him, general damages for defamation, special damages for defamation, punitive damages for malicious publication of falsehood at all cost; and any other orders or remedies that the court may deem fit.
