Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has been issued a stern warning by a magistrate court in Accra for failing to show up for a hearing.
The court presided over by His Worship, Mr Isaac Addo, said a bench warrant will be issued for the arrest of Shatta Wale if he fails to appear in court on the next date.
The judge said both Shatta Wale and his lawyer are playing with the court, a development the court is unhappy with.
“Second accused and his lawyer are playing with the court. For a very long time, he has not appeared in court,” the judge fumed.
Shatta Wale and colleague dancehall musician, Stonebwoy are standing trial for offensive misconduct at the 2019 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in April.
When the case was called, Stonebwoy was present but Shatta Wale and his lawyer were both absent on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

Prosecution led by Superintendent Emelia Asante, then prayed the court for a bench warrant to be issued for the arrest of the musician.
