- Wisa Greid has revealed that he spent the money given to him by Halifax
- According to the singer, Halifax refused to take back the GHc 10,000 money meant for bail
- Halifax extended a helping hand to Wisa after he had been fined by the court for indecent exposure
Ghanaian hiplife Artiste, Wisa Gried, has revealed that he spent the Ghc 10,000 that was given to him by his ex-manager, Halifax Ansah Addo after the journalist rejected the money following the controversy that surrounded it.
Speaking on The Zone with KOD on Thursday, May 17, Wisa admitted taking GHC10,000 from Halifax after the court fine was paid by his managers.
“I received GHC10, 000 from Halifax but I didn’t use it to pay the fine, after the fine was paid I tried returning the money to him but he rejected it so I spent it “, Wisa is noted to have stated.
There was controversy over who actually paid for the ‘Ekiki Me’ hit singer to be set free after an Accra Circuit Court found him guilty of indecent exposure and was fined GHC8,4000, with a default sentence of 24 months in prison.
Mr. Halifax Ansah-Addo, who is also the Director of Communications for Zylofon Cash and Zylofon Events, had said he sent an amount of GHc 10, 000.00 to bail Wisa.
According to him, when he heard about the fine, he thought he could help, so he asked Wisa to send someone to his office for the money.
“I wasn’t even in court so I called few media friends who were there and sent the money so he would be freed. Wisa is my friend. We come from the same hometown and I felt it was right to help a brother who was in dire need at that moment.
However, the Chief Executive Officer of Black Avenue Muzik, Desmond Blackmore (D-Black), who now manages Wisa said the fine was not paid by Halifax.
The comments made by D-Black which was later endorsed by Wisa Greid caused a bit of confusion in the media circles since it could not be ascertained whether the money was actually given to the artiste or not.
Wisa Gried was fined GHc 8,400 for gross indecency by an Accra Circuit Court after he showed his manhood on stage in 2015.
