Rapper Kwaw Kese is a free man

Kwaw Kese, who was tried for narcotic offences and was sentenced to a day’s imprisonment yesterday and a fine of GHc1,200, is a free man now.

A Kumasi High Court sentenced him yesterday after a number of adjournments, following the rapper’s arrest by police in Kumasi on November 22, 2014.

The rapper was arrested for smoking cannabis in public and was remanded into prison custody after making an appearance in court.

He was whisked away into a police van and sent to the Kumasi Central Prison which served as his new home until he was granted bail on December 30 on health grounds.

The court, presided over by Judge William Boampong granted him 80,000 Ghana cedis bail with one surety to be justified.

After the bail, Kwao Kese popularly called ‘Abodam’ has been advocating for decongesting the country’s prisons and improving conditions there.

On Thursday April 23, however the court finally reached a verdict. Judge William Boampong sentenced “Abodam” to a day’s imprisonment and a fine of 1,200.

The rapper tweeted Friday that he is doing great and he is back in Accra.

“Madded morning to y’all !!! Wofreme #Yakubu… I want all my fans and loved ones to know that am doing great and back home. Thanks y’all for the luv and support. #iappreciatedaluv #Yakubu” he said.
