Kwaw Kese mulls $1m damages against the State for 2015 marijuana arrest and conviction

Rapper Kwaw Kese believes he was victimized when he was captured and sentenced for narcotics offenses in the wake of being caught smoking marijuana in public in 2015.

He says he would speak with his legal counselors and look for compensation of about $1 million for the smudge in his career, taking note of that "These things have occurred to me as of late, Ghana has not been fair to me." Talking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, he expressed that there are outside nationals who have been discovered on camera partaking in cannabis who were not secured to confront the law.

Nonetheless, the rapper said he was captured and afterward imprisoned, expressing, "Even with mine they have no evidence that I was doing that. There's no shot that they could show that to say 'we saw Kwaw Kese doing this'. It's a prattle and I was imprisoned for it. They have no image to demonstrate it." "This is a similar Ghana, the very police that captured me are currently bodyguarding with weapons, watching someone who is definitely not a Ghanaian to smoke in broad daylight and it is live on record and everything and that individual goes without any consequence," he claimed.

The performer expressed that in addition to the fact that he captured for was "pointless reasons" however it put a tremendous stain on his name. "I have confirmation, I have proof that shows that other outside nationals have come to do exactly the same thing I was imprisoned for. On the off chance that this is the way things are, I must be made up for the shame and how they treated me and my name," Kwaw Kese added.

Kwaw Kese was tried for narcotic offences and was condemned to a day's detainment and a fine of GHȼ1,200 in 2015. The rapper, prevalently called 'Abodam', has since been supporting for decongesting the nation's jails and further developing circumstances there. In 2020, he communicated his disappointment when Jamaican artist Popcaan was seen smoking what was thought to be weed freely while visiting Ghana during the level of the Extended time of Return.

"Just in Ghana outsiders can f**k up like this. When @kwawkese smoked in open he was captured. So this implies our Regulation set exclusively to control on the residents yet outsiders are allowed to go. The most incredibly difficult aspect is Ghana police. Not a single one of them had the option to talk reality out as a result of the little coins which will be given out … Ooh Ghana," Kwaw Kese had said at that point.

In December 2023, Ghana's Parliament passed a regulation to legitimize the development and the executives of pot for modern and business purposes however the sporting utilization of pot (pot) is unlawful.
