Following the arrest and remand in prison custody of hiplife artiste Kwaw Kese, several notable personalities including radio presenters, musicians, legal practitioners and politicians, have visited the “Odeim” rapper.
On Tuesday afternoon, rapper Sarkodie and music producer, Edward Opoku popularly known as Hammer travelled from Accra to Kumasi to visit Kwaw Kese.
Even though the two were not too happy seeing Kwaw and his current situation, they disclosed that Kwaw Kese was doing fine and that he wanted all his fans to remain calm.
Kwaw Kese was remanded in prison custody by the Kumasi Circuit Court, last Monday, for unlawful use of a substance suspected to be cannabis.
His plea was not taken and the presiding judge, Mr William Boampong, deferred ruling on the application for bail by his counsel, Nana Kwasi Boaitey, to December 8, 2014.
Nana Boaitey prayed the court to grant the accused person bail, as mere suspicion by the prosecution that the substance was narcotic was not enough for his client to be denied bail.
He argued that for a case of such nature involving a public figure, the police should have used something more than just suspicion to hold him behind bars.
According to Nana Boaitey, even cigarette could sometimes be confused for narcotic, adding that the responsibility was on the prosecution to show beyond reasonable doubt that the substance was really narcotic.
He said the rapper’s image had suffered serious damage following his arrest and his continued detention would aggravate his situation.
However, the presiding judge deferred ruling on the bail application to December 8, 2014.
A plea from counsel for an earlier date was not considered by the judge.
Sporting a white T-shirt with a silver chain over a pair of jeans trousers and blue snickers, Kwaw Kese, also known as Abodam, to wit ‘Madness’, who appeared in court in handcuffs, was almost all the time smiling.
Even the court clerks and some lawyers who made him out at the time of his entry could not help but suck their teeth at his appearance.
His mood, however, changed when the presiding judge turned down the application for bail. When it dawned on him that he was going to spend the next two weeks in prison custody, Kwaw Kese grimaced at the order.
However, more of our celebrities are pleading for the release of their colleague musician. This campaign known as #FreeKwawkese is trending on various social media platforms.
