Controversial Ghanaian rapper, Kwaw Kese, who was being tried for narcotic offences has been sentenced to a day’s imprisonment.
He will also pay a fine of GHc1,200.
A Kumasi High Court gave the ruling Thursday after months of back and forth, following the rapper’s arrest by police in Kumasi on November 22, 2014, for allegedly smoking cannabis in public.
The court, presided over by Judge William Boampong sentenced “Abodam” to a day’s imprisonment and the fine. Should he default in paying the fine, “Abodam” will go to prison for three years with hard labour.
Myjoyonline.com sources say the rapper and his managers have already paid the fine and the rapper is currently serving his prison sentence.
Friday morning, Kwaw Kesse will be a free man.
