Kwaw Kese evacuated to the U.S to avoid jail term for weed smoking - Pappy Kojo jokes

Ghanaian hip-hop musician Pappy Kojo has jokingly alleged that fellow rapper Kwaw Kese has relocated to the United States due to Ghana’s ban on cannabis (weed), while contributing to the ongoing 'Fix the Country' protest.

Social media has been boiling for the past four days after Ghanaians launched a massive online protest dubbed ‘Fix the Country’. The hashtag has generated over 500,000 tweets so far.

Top Ghanaian celebrities, including Yvonne Nelson, John Dumelo, Lydia Forson, Efia Odo, Ko-Jo Cue, Kwaw Kese, Pappy Kojo, and DKB, have joined the calls.

Contributing to the protest, Pappy Kojo said Kwaw Kese has left the country due to fear of getting arrested again for weed smoking.

“Our legend Kwaw Kese has evacuated to yankee because small mixture of ntampi & jot can get u jailed, let’s respect the legends,” Pappy Kojo tweeted.

In 2014, Kwaw Kese was arrested and detained in Kumasi for smoking weed and was released a few weeks later.
