*Caution the videos embed in this post have some explicit content.

(Accra,GNA)- Shatta Wale arguably Ghana’s most prolific dancehall artiste in the last two years has never been reticent or diplomatic about expressing his sentiments over the lack of the appreciation of his talent or his continuous slight by Ghanaian media houses.

Charter House a Ghanaian management and production company has borne the brunt of Shatta Wale’s outbursts on more than one occasion.

A Fast Track High Court on Monday has however restrained Charles Nii Amarli Mensah aka Shatta Wale, artiste, from repeating videos in relation to Charter House.

Here are the latest videos that got Ghana’s self crowned dancehall king in trouble.

He uploaded these videos on his face book page.

The court further restrained him from making new videos and pasting on his Facebook page concerning Charter House and its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Iyoila Ayoade.

This follows the granting of an interlocutory injunction filed by Charter House and its CEO at the court presided over by Ms Justice Naa Adoley Azu.

At the court Counsel for Shatta Wale prayed the court to adjourn the matter since they have written to the plaintiffs to settle the matter out of court.

Mr Egbert Faibille, counsel for Charter House disagreed to the defense submission, saying Shatta Wale has not shown any remorse in respect of the matter because he had gone ahead with another video.

The court therefore asked the defendants to file their defense if any so that if the out of court settlement failed, it would go ahead to hear the matter.

It, therefore, adjourned the matter to November 3.

Charter House and Mr. Ayoade had gone to court in relation to four separate videos they alleged were defamatory and uploaded on social media platforms.

The two Plaintiffs were praying the court to declare that the Dancehall King had defamed them with the four separate videos he recorded and uploaded to his Facebook page.

According to the plaintiffs, two of the said videos were uploaded on September 23 and September 24.

The Plaintiffs were also praying the court to order Shatta Wale to render “an unqualified apology and retraction of each of the four separate videos with the approval by the Plaintiffs prior to the recording and uploading” to his Facebook page and to remain on his page for one month within a week of the judgment.

The Plaintiffs again sought the court for an “order of perpetual injunction retraining the Defendant, his agents, hirelings, manager(s), privies and assigns or any person through him and howsoever described from making and/or repeating the defamatory statements or similar statements in the nature of the ones complained in the video recordings.”

The Plaintiffs were also demanding that Shatta Wale sends apology in respect of the four videos to all media houses and online media that he aired the defamatory videos complained of and ensure that same and/or published at his own expense.

Here are some other songs by Shatta Wale where he chronicles his tumultuous relationship with Charter House in with expresses his unreserved angst about prejudices exhibited against him by some Ghanaian media houses.
