The Dancehall artiste is reappearing in court today after his first court appearance on Thursday, October 21, 2021, which saw an Accra Circuit Court judge deny him bail.

Shatta Wale and three members of his team were remanded for a week during their first appearance in court. The four have been in police grips for a gunshot attack prank orchestrated on October 18, 2021.
