The Accra High Court has okayed Shatta Wale’s former manager Bulldog an out-of-court-settlement following his request over a defamation case filed against dancehall artist
Shatta Wale had earlier issued threats on his former manager Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bullgod, over the death of Fennec Okyere, manager of hiplife artist Kwaw Kese.
Fennec Okyere, demise occurred at his residence at Manet Gardens residence on the Spintex Road, Accra by some unknown hoodlums, but the dancehall artist claimed his former manager had a hand in the killing.
His accusations was founded on allegations he insisted he had evidence to prove.
Consequently, Bulldog responded by filing a defamation suit against one of Ghana’s finest dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale citing that those allegations against him are malicious and defamatory and sought legal damages from Shatta Wale.
Reports however indicate that former manager has taken a different approach to resolving the matter by requesting the court to withdraw his suit to allow him settle same out of the court’s jurisdiction.
At the last adjourned date, April 18, the court directed the filing of witness statements by both parties. This followed Counsel for Bullgod, Dr. Justice Srem-Sai’s statement, informing the court that his client and defendant have concurred on settling the matter with already ongoing negotiations.
Dr. Srem-Sai prayed for an adjournment and the outcome of the negotiation may cause his formal application for an extension of time to file the witness statement instructed by the court.
The judge, Justice Joseph Agyemang Owusu, urged the parties to do their due diligence prior to the adjourned date.
