It appears the case between Medikal and the state has come to its final conclusion after the popular rapper was arrested for brandishing a gun on social media.

Medikal was found guilty after pleading guilty to the crime, as he had already entered a not guilty plea. The court during sitting today found him guilty on his own accord.

He was fined 300 penalty units. A penalty unit in Ghana’s court is just 12 cedis meaning the rapper needs to just settle 3,600 cedis to the court.

In default, the ‘Father’ hitmaker will be sentenced to nine months in prison if he does not comply. Medikal had previously approached the Circuit Court in Accra on January 25, 2022 to compel the police to hand over his gun to him.

Some online reactions show some sort of dissatisfaction among the masses as some see the amount being paid as too small.

@ruruappiah “but the money is toooooooo small for him to pay”
