This, according to Shatta Wale, was going to teach some of these celebs to know and understand what it means to be experiencing a hustling life.
He added that all the musicians and other celebs who are 'stubborn' must be punished with jail time.
Shatta Wale appeared quite serious while making his submission to show that he would be happy to see some changes in the entertainment industry.
The dancehall artiste is currently swallowing his own words and enduring his bitter pill following his arrest and subsequently being placed on remand for a whole week.
Shatta Wale was arrested following a shooting prank he staged which according to authorities, caused fear and panic.
This was in response to a prophecy that came his way which alleged that he was going to be shot on October 18, 2021.
The Ayoo hitmaker was arraigned before an Accra Circuit on Thursday, October 21, 2021, following his arrest on Tuesday.
Shatta Wale pleaded not guilty to the charge of publication of false news and causing fear and panic.
Three others, Kojo Owusu Koranteng a.k.a. Nana Dope, Idris Yusif, and Eric Venator, who have been charged for abetment have also been sentenced to one week remand in police custody.
A video has popped up showing Shatta Wale's appearance in court. He arrived in a white outfit and was ushered out of the police van by police personnel.
YEN.com.gh reached out to Zylofon FM radio show host Arnold Elavanyo Mensah for his take on the current development.
According to him, the video was probably just one of the many jokes Shatta Wale was known for whipping up to entertain his fanbase.
The radio show host however indicated that on a serious note, celebs were Ghanaians and not above the law and went on to caution them to be watchful of their social media activities.

"The times when celebs were given some kind of special treatment due to their status is far gone and Shatta Wale's issue should serve as a wake up call to them.
There mere fact that you are a celeb does not make you immune to the laws of the land, once you flout the law, you will be dealt with," Arnold concluded.
