Shatta Wale might have gained some traction in the case leveled against him by organizers of Ghana Music Awards, Charterhouse.
In an appearance at court, counsel for the artiste who is accused of defamation, made argument that Charterhouse was not fit to be suing Shatta Wale aka Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr. He furthered his argument that the event house was not a registered legal entity in the country and thus had no grounds to be bring a suit up against the artiste.
Shatta Wale's lawyer objected when the plaintiffs commenced the case in the name of Charterhouse Ghana and Mr. Iyiola Ayoade. Wale's defence argued that the was no company called Charter House Ghana Limited.
According to him, there is a registered company called Charter House Productions Limited which is different from the one that brought the suit against his client and therefore asked the court to strike out the case.
This was opposed by the plaintiffs, who maintained that the proper thing the court would do is direct the plaintiffs to amend their pleadings.
The plaintiffs are expected to file their amendments before close of day Tuesday, December 9. Trial will commence in January 2015 after the plaintiffs have filed their amendments.
