Private legal practitioner, Dr Maurice Ampaw has suggested that the police should invite Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale and interrogate him for more evidence regarding his allegation against his former manager, Bulldog.
Pamper Shatta Wale for evidence – Maurice Ampaw to police
Shatta Wale at a press conference in Pluzz FM studios alleged that Bulldog, real name Lawrence Nana Asiama Hanson, in a fit of anger, threatened to kill him like he [Bulldog] killed somebody.
“Somebody asked him, ‘Bulldog are you not the same person who has issues to answer in Ghana about things like these?’ And he responded, ‘don't mind him, I will kill him like I killed the other guy’," Shatta Wale said.
Although the name of the one allegedly murdered was not mentioned, some people are making reference to the murder of Kwaw Kese’s manager, Fennec Okyereof which Bulldog was charged for but was later acquitted.
Maurice Ampaw in an interview with Abrantepa on Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, stated that the Shatta Wale would have to substantiate the wild allegations. According to him, one side of the implications of the statement may be that the artiste has evidence needed for the prosecution of Bulldog, for which reason the police should invite him.
“There are serious implications to what Shatta Wale said. It makes Bulldog a serious suspect which the police should investigate. First, Shatta in this case is a whistle blower and has shown that he knows what we don’t know and because he was managing him, he couldn’t let them out. It means Shatta is now ready to confess. The police should invite him by now and send him to Royal Senchi, feed him, let him feel fine and ask for more information. If he levelled those allegations out of pain, he will tell you; if it’s true, he will say it,” the ‘showbiz lawyer’ said.
Dr Ampaw however stated that Bulldog could sue Shatta Wale for defamation if he finds the allegations damaging.
“If Shatta is unable to prove, Bulldog can sue him for defamation because he has implicated him as a criminal and no one would want to associate himself with a murderer. Bulldog should not take this as a mere allegation,” he noted.
Meanwhile, family of Fennec Okyere have called for the arrest of Shata Wale and his former Manager to establish who he was referring to.
