Counsel for embattled Hiplife Musician Eugene Ashie, a.k.a Wisa Greid of ‘Ekiki Me’ fame, Jerry Agbenovor has abandoned his client at the premises of an Accra Court claiming the latter and his manager failed to properly negotiate the terms for his services.
Wisa is standing trial at an Accra Circuit Court 5 for showing off his genitals to a live audience in ecstasy on Christmas Eve last year and was due for court today Monday, January 25, 2015.
At the time of going to press, the case was yet to be called in one of the country’s busiest courts but without any legal representation.
Speaking on the Ultimate Brunch Show Hosted by Naa Klordey Ordonkor, Starr Fm’s Accra Court Correspondent Wilberforce Asare disclosed that Lawyer Jerry Agbenovor was in court but said he was not there as legal representation of Wisa.
He maintained that the musician and his manager had failed to properly negotiate the terms and conditions of his services and also remained tight-lipped over the exact amount to be paid to him as legal fees for his services.
Manager of the Musician has however promised to resolve the problem to ensure that the Musician is properly represented in court during the next adjournment date.
Jerry Agbenovor it would be recalled in defence for his client said he only showed a dildo and not his genitals during a live performance at the Accra International Conference Center.
The stance of his lawyer however, contradicts that of the musician who openly apologized for his conduct stating;“I cannot explain this rash and irresponsible behaviour, but I have been trained to acknowledge my fault and be responsible for my actions. That is why I want to accept every bit of criticism that has come my way in the ensuing hours”.
