After debating the merits of a defamation case that was now before the court, Kwame Asare Obeng, well known by his stage as A Plus, was found guilty of contempt of court along with three other people.
He [A Plus], Felicity Nana Ama Agyeman, alias Nana Ama Mcbrown, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, alias Afia Schwarzenegger, and Emmanuel Barnes, alias Mr. Logic, had been sued by Chairman Wontumi, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling NPP.
Along with Fadda Dickson Narh and UTV, the four were present.
In its decision on December 1, 2022, the High Court found them all guilty and sentenced them to pay GH60,000 in fines. If they fail to do so, they will be imprisoned for two months.
However, due to her absence from court on Thursday when the matter was called, Afia Schwarzenegger will serve 10 days in jail. A bench warrant was issued by the court for her immediate arrest.
However, the court granted Fadda Dickson Narh, the Executive Producer of the United Showbiz programme on UTV, a pardon in its decision since he expressed regret before the issue was presented to court by ordering an apology to be published on UTV.
