Kwaw Kese sentenced to a day's imprisonment. Plus a fine of GHc1,200.



Controversial Ghanaian rapper, Kwaw Kese, who was 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 a number of adjournments, following the rapper's arrest by police in Kumasi on November 22, 2014.

The controversial rapper was arrested for allegedly smoking cannabis in public and was remanded into prison after making an appearance in court.

He was whisked away into a police van and sent to the Kumasi Central Prison which served as his new home until he was granted bail on December 30 on health grounds.

The court, presided over by Judge William Boampong granted him 80,000 Ghana cedis bail with one surety to be justified.

On Thursday April 23 however the court finally reached a verdict. Judge William Boampong sentenced "Abodam" to a day's imprisonment and a fine of 1,200.

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.
