I Did Not See Wisa’s ‘Thing’ – Witness Tells Court

I Did Not See Wisa’s ‘Thing’ – Witness Tells Court

An Accra Gender-Based Circuit Court has expressed worry over the kind of witnesses state prosecutors bring before the court in respect of the case involving Hiplife artiste Eugene Ashe, aka Wisa Greid, of “Ekiki Mi” fame.

In the view of trial judge Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, the prosecutor ought to bring what she described as “material witnesses.”

This was after the prosecutor, Chief Inspector J. B. Asante, had led Michael Acheampong, an Events Manager of Airtel Ghana, to testify in the case in which the musician is being tried for supposedly showing his genital on stage.

According to Michael Acheampong, although he was not in the auditorium where the event was held, he heard shouts that Wisa had shown his genital on stage while performing.

Under cross-examination by Jerry Avenogbor, lawyer for Wisa, Mr Acheampong said as sponsors of the show, Airtel did not issue any statement about the case. He said the company felt keeping silent was a strategy in managing the bad PR.

The Airtel Ghana Events Manager told the court that personally, he did not see the accused showing his manhood but only heard screams in the auditorium.

He said he was at a stand the company had mounted at the entrance of the venue.

Sitting continues on May 13.

Wisa Greid is standing trial for allegedly showing his manhood during a live performance on December 24, 2015 during the ‘Decemba 2 Rememba’ event at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The video of the artiste stripping and rubbing his genital behind his female dancer on stage was put on social media, compelling his management to apologise over what it  described as the artiste’s ‘rash and irresponsible behaviour.’

He is currently on an GH¢8,000 bail with one surety.
