Embattled hip-life artiste, Kwaw Kese, born Emmanuel Botchwey is scheduled to reappear at the Kumasi High court today as he seeks to secure a bail.
His third attempt at securing bail on health grounds was unsuccessful after his lawyers failed to produce a medical report to support their motion.
This will be the fourth time he will be appearing in court since his arrest on Saturday, November 22.The rapper was arrested by the Police in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region for allegedly smoking a substance suspected to be Indian hemp in public, at a drinking spot close to the popular ‘+2 Pub’ in Nhyiaeso in Kumasi.
The Ashanti Regional Police Command ruled out bail and processed him for court.
The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit court presided over by Judge William Boampong, subsequently remanded him in prison custody at the Kumasi Central Prison.
After two failed attempts to secure bail at the KMA Circuit court, his lawyers took the case to the Kumasi High court where he was denied bail a third time.
Kwaw Kese has however begun a massive campaign against the use of narcotic drugs by the youth.
Meanwhile, his colleagues in the music industry have been pleading with the authorities to deal leniently with him while others are campaigning for his release.
