‘Ghetto boys’ to demonstrate over Kwaw Kese’s arrest

imagesA group of young men in the hometown of embattled hiplife musician, Kwaw Kese are threatening to hit the streets if the musician is not released from custody.

The group calling themselves ‘Ghetto boys’ in Agona Swedru has described the detention of the ‘King of the Streets’ as unjust.

The controversial hiplife artiste was on Saturday night arrested by the Kumasi police for allegedly smoking a substance suspected to be marijuana.

He appeared on Monday at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly Circuit Court and was remanded in prison custody after a plea for bail by his lawyer was ignored.

Kwaw Kese was remanded in police custody on Monday, to reappear on December 8 to allow for police investigations.

In an interview with Kantinka FM’s Nana Amoani, the disgruntled youth maintained that the police erred in arresting their “hero”.

They explained that Kwaw Kese is a very generous man who gives them money as well as buys rice and other foodstuff for them whenever he visits Agona Swedru. “Everyone knows Kwaw Kese smokes wee; he is the King of the Streets so why this arrest,” a member of the group quizzed.

The Ghetto boys are therefore calling on the Inspector of Police, Mohammed Alhassan to release Kwaw Kese.

“If not, we and other ghetto boys in the Central region will demonstrate to express our displeasure,” they warned.
