The Accra circuit court has granted bail to Kwesi Appiah, the Ghanaian pastor who was said to have prophesied a gunshot attack on Shatta Wale, the dancehall singer.

Shatta, whose real name is Charles Nii Armah Mensah, was earlier arrested for fueling fake claims that he was shot.

The police launched an investigation into the case while Shatta was charged with the publication of fake news.

The embattled musician had called for the arrest of Appiah who was said to be the brain behind a prophecy that fueled the rumours.

Appiah, who is the founder of the New Life Kingdom Chapel, was charged with spreading information that could cause fear and panic.

After his first court hearing last Thursday, he was remanded in police custody despite pleading not guilty.

Shatta’s next court sitting is on October 26 but a Ghc100,000 bail was granted to Appiah with three sureties.

Earlier, a video surfaced of  Shatta Wale entering the Ankaful maximum security prison in Ghana.

Inmates at the correctional facility could be seen jubilating in the open as the embattled dancehall singer made his way into the premises.
