Rapper, Kwaw Kese who was released from the Kumasi Central Prison on Tuesday, December 30, 2014 after he was arrested for smoking marijuana, says he will allow the law to take its course because he is not above the law.
‘Abodam’ as he’s popularly called made this comment on Peace FM’S Entertainment Review saying, “Nobody is above the law; and currently, they are only alleging. It has not come out that what they are saying I was doing, I was really doing anything like that”
“To me, I think I’m not above the law so I will let the law take its course. I have never gone against the law and I will not go against the law. No one should go against the law because nobody is above the law,” he added.
Recounting his first day in prison, the ‘Fante’ rapper said, “The first day I got into the cell, it was like the first day Mandela was released from prison. The jubilation was so much. All these prisoners were amazed. They were really happy to see me”.
“You know, they knew I was coming so they prepared to meet the ‘King of the Street’. Some of the prisoners even told me that if I had not been brought to prison, they had no idea how they were going to meet me. When I got into the cells, the inmates felt like they had met Jesus”.
According to him, most of the inmates thought he did not deserve to be there and were praying for his release
“Most of the inmates felt that I didn’t deserve to be in that place. Though I sometimes prayed for some of them to be released, they were always praying for my release,” he said.
He also admitted that the first day he was arrested he thought the issue will be over the next day but he thought wrong.
“When I was arrested initially, I thought maybe by the next day everything would have been over but the law didn’t allow that”, he said.
But when the rapper was asked to narrate what happened on the night of his arrest he said, “I don’t want to make a comment on an issue which is already in court”.
