Hip-life artisite Kwaw Kese has said a recent revelation by dancehall artiste Shatta Wale that his estranged former Manager Bulldog threatened to kill him (Shatta) “like I did the other guy,” is a “great lead” for the Police towards unravelling the mystery surrounding the murder of Fennec Okyere a year ago.
“This is a great lead to the police to do justice to whomever had a hand in Fennec’s murder,” Kwaw Kese told Starr FM Monday November 2, 2015 in an interview.
“My day has been miserable…it’s crazy,” he reacted to Wale’s revelation, adding: “This thing is very pathetic.”
“If really there’s truth in it, then we have to watch out for the people around us,” he warned.
Okyere, who managed Kwaw Kese until his death, was found gunned down in his residence last year.
The Police are still investigating the matter. Bulldog of Bullhaus Entertainment was implicated in the murder, but was later acquitted and discharged of any wrongdoing.
Shatta Wale told journalists at a press conference in Accra Monday that: “I have repeated the part about him [Bulldog] threatening to kill me twice and I won’t hide it. Somebody asked him: ‘Bulldog are you not the same person, who has issues to answer in Ghana about things like these?’ And he responded: ‘Don’t mind him; I will kill him like l killed the other guy’” Shatta Wale alleged.
The ‘other guy’ Shatta Wale made reference to is what has intrigued people, who were closely associated with Fennec, including MP Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, who told Starr FM she had passed on the new information to the Police.
Shatta Wale’s accusations come on the heels of a recent announcement by Bullhaus Entertainment that it had ended its relationship with the hard-talking self-acclaimed ‘dancehall king.’
“The management of Bullhaus Entertainment wishes to bring to the notice of the general public that we no longer have a working relationship with multiple award-winning artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah A.K.A. Shatta Wale effective immediately,” the statement said.
It added: “We are humbled to have been part of the success story up until this point, and wish Shatta Wale all the best in his future endeavours. We also wish to thank Shatta Wale and his Shatta Movement team for choosing us as managers for his professional career for these past years. We will forever be fans of Shatta Wale and his music and still believe in the mantra of the Shatta Movement. ‘Shatta Movement for life’”.
Asked if he thought Shatta Wale could be hurling the accusations against Bulldog to get even with Bullhaus Entertainment for ending relations with him, Kwaw Kese said: “I don’t think you can say stuff like this to make somebody feel bad…to me Fennec was murdered and the case has been pending for more than a year…it’s a serious allegation and I’m hoping the police will not sleep on this.”
