In a writ filed at the Accra High court, Bullgod is seeking damages for the pronouncements that he considers defamatory.

In a social post on Wednesday, November 2, Shatta wale wrote, “since you are bringing our secrets, you will tell Ghanaians what happened to Fenicks murder …”

Last week’s social media accusation prompted the Ghana Police Service to release a statement saying they were talking to Shatta Wale and he was “cooperating on the matter”.



A feud has been brewing since Shatta Wale left Bulldog’s management company, Bullhaus Entertainment, earlier this year.

The lawyer of the plaintiff stressed that the comments triggered an investigation into the death of Mr. Okyere.

Shatta Wale’s international profile was boosted in 2019 by a collaboration with Beyoncé on her Grammy-nominated Lion King: The Gift album.
