Ghanaian artiste, Eugene Ashie known by stage name Wisa Greid has been convicted of indecent act for showing his penis during a live performance ‘Decemba2Remember’ concert far back as December 24, 2015.
An Accra circuit court presided over by Mrs. Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, today has passed its judgment on his case after nearly two years of trial of the hiplife artiste.
He was slapped with an amount of Ghc 8,400 with a default sentence of 24 months for gross indecency meaning Should Wisa refuse to pay the amount of Ghc8,400, he would spend 24 months in prison.
Wisa had argued that what he showed on stage was an artificial penis, but the court held that the evidence on record showed that it was his real penis.
The court established that there were inconsistencies in the police statement and the account Wisa gave during the trial.
After the judgment, Wisa’s lawyer, Mr. Jerry Avenogbor, begged the court to give his client one week to cough up the money.
According to him, it won’t be easy for his client to get the money today. The court granted his request but admitted Wisa to bail in the sum of Gh¢10,000 with one surety to be justified.
