Famous Ghanaian musician Kwaw Kese, Emmanuel Kofi Botchwey, became entangled in the legal system in 2015 after being detained by the Ghana Police on suspicion of possessing cannabis.

After being found guilty of drug charges in 2015, Kwaw Kese was given a day’s jail sentence and a GH˖1,200 fine.

In the present, the crooner is thinking about asking for a sizable $1 million payment for what he believes to have been an unfair arrest. He went on to say that he is thinking of suing the Ghana Police for $1 million in damages after being detained and found guilty of smoking marijuana.

In an open interview with Hitz FM, the hitmaker of “Awoyo Sofo” revealed that he felt his arrest for smoking marijuana in public was unfair because many foreigners had broken the same law without being arrested.

He further averred that he would communicate with his lawyers to take appropriate legal action.

 “Even with mine, they don’t have any proof that I was doing that. They could not possibly demonstrate that to claim, “We saw Kwaw Kese doing this.” I was incarcerated due to hearsay. There is no photo to support their claims.

“This is the same Ghana, the same police who arrested me are now stationed here with guns, protecting someone who is not from Ghana from smoking in public. It is all live on camera, too, and that person walks away with nothing,” he said.

Kwaw continued by saying that the arrest hurt his career and reputation. He argues that the incident tarnished his public image and hindered his ability to work freely in the music industry.

“I have proof, I have evidence that shows that other foreign nationals have come to do the same thing I was jailed for. If this is how it is, then I have to be compensated for the disgrace and what they did to me and my name,” he emphasized.
