Bulldog and Shatta Wale to resolve defamation case outside of court

Attorneys for Shatta Wale and artist management Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog are negotiating an out-of-court settlement to the former’s defamation claim against the latter.

When they arrived in court on Tuesday, March 7, Bulldog’s attorney, Justice Srem Sai, informed the judge of this.

He explained to the court, ruled over by Judge Joseph Adu Agyemang Owusu, that settlement negotiations prevented the parties from filing their witness testimonies as required.

“The matter is amenable to resolution. In order to try and reach a resolution, we ask for one more adjournment, and depending on the result, we might formally request an extension of time to submit our witness statement, the attorney told the court.

The lawsuit will now be heard on April 18, 2023.

Bulldog had filed a defamation lawsuit against his former artist in 2022.

This came about as a result of the musician’s threat to reveal his purported information regarding the demise of late artist manager Fennec Okyere, among other people.

Bullgod’s attorneys stated in court filings submitted to an Accra High Court that these statements aim to imply that he planned, carried out, or assisted in Mr. Okyere’s death.

According to them, Shatta Wale also implied in some of his claims that “the Plaintiff is a person who engages in illicit gun violence, contract killing, and other related crimes,” as well as “that the Plaintiff is in the trade of procuring, controlling, and arranging prostitutes in return for money and other material gains.”

Bulldog is asking the court to rule that these claims, along with others cited in the lawsuit, are false and malicious.

Additionally, he is pleading with the court to order Shatta Wale to retract his claims and offer an apology to him.

Bulldog is requesting, among other things, “costs, any additional orders or remedies that the Court may find proper, general damages for defamation, specific damages for defamation, punitive damages for the deliberate dissemination of lie against the plaintiff.”
