Wisa Wanted !

Officials of the Ghana Police Service have told an
Accra court that they have tried without success
to locate the whereabouts of the 'Ekiki Me' hit
maker, Wisa Greid.
Wisa, known in private life as Eugene Ashe, is
standing trial at an Accra Domestic Violence and
Gender Based court and a bench warrant has
been issued thrice for his arrest but according to
the police, strenuous efforts to find the popular
singer have proved futile.
Wisa has supposedly gone 'missing' at a time his
latest track, 'Cocoa', has become an instant and a
popular street anthem. Its music video is also
making heavy rotation on television stations.
The court presided over by Abena Oppong Adjin-
Doku as a result urged the police to find him.
The judge two weeks ago, issued a bench warrant
for the arrest of Wisa following his absence from
court on two consecutive times.
The court on February 5, this year ordered the
arrest of the hiplife artiste who has been dragged
before the court for showing his genitals to the
audience during a public performance in
December last year.
Again on March, 23, the musician narrowly
escaped arrest by the police after he and his
lawyer had popped up at the court minutes after
another warrant had been issued for his arrest.
This was because neither Wisa nor his manager
or lawyer was in court when the case was called
for hearing.
In that incident the judge in rescinding the
warrant for the arrest particularly warned Wisa
that even if his lawyer was absent from court, he
had no excuse to do so.
This time around, Wisa’s lawyer, who was in
court hoping to see his client stated that he had
not seen or heard from him for about a month
now after their last communication.
He argued that in that communication, Wisa's
mother informed him that the accused had been
vomiting and as such was unable to attend court
during the last sitting.
According to Jerry, he could not deceive the
court about his client's whereabouts.
He pleaded with the court to “rescind the bench
warrant so my client could go and prepare for the
case. We assure the court that never again would
this happen."
The prosecutor, Inspector Judith B. Asante
applied for a warrant which was granted by the
trial judge.
Hearing has been adjourned until August 3, 2016.
Wisa is standing trial for allegedly showing his
manhood during a live performance on December
24, 2015 during the 'December 2 Remember'
event at the International Conference Centre.
A video of the artiste stripping and rubbing his
manhood against his female dancer on stage was
put on social media, compelling his management
to apologise for what it described as the artiste's
"rash and irresponsible behaviour."
He has since denied the offence and is on a
Ȼ8,000 bail with one surety.
