Kwaw Kesse mounts campaign against drugs

Hiplife artiste Emmanuel Botchway, popularly known as Kwaw Kese, who
is currently in the grips of the law for smoking cannabis, is urging
the youth to stay away from drugs.

Kwaw Kese was arrested by the police in Kumasi on Saturday, November
22, for allegedly smoking cannabis and has been remanded into prison
at the Kumasi Central Prison. He is due to appear in court December 22
after three failed attempts to get bail.

In a statement signed jointly by management of the rapper and the
Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Kwaw Kese said he continues to be
an advocate for increased Youth Development programmes in Ghana.

According to the statement, "he also remains committed to the 'Say No
To Drugs Campaign' as is evident in his support to Prisons and
outreach programmes each year. This year we are hopeful he may be able
to do so again."

The rapper challenged the youth of Ghana to "be positive, be patriotic
and to do all they can to follow their dreams."

Kwaw Kese, who expressed gratitude to the general public for the
tremendous show of support as he awaits his faith in the court, urged
the general public and fans to desist from making statements that will
be prejudicial in the case against him.

Since his arrest, several celebrities including Samini, Shatta Wale,
Yaa Pono, Kofi Kinaata, Dee Moneey and Wanlov have taken to social
media networks to support a campaign - #FreeKwawKese – with the hope
of getting him released.

Commenting on the campaign, the 'Oye Nonsense' hit singer disapproved
of the formation of the group, fearing it may worsen his case.

"We are, therefore, calling on all parties to desist from making
further statements and embarking on campaigns such as #FreeKwawKesse
et al in a bid to support Kwaw Kesse. On the contrary, these
activities along with the heightened media coverage only go to worsen
the plight of Kwaw," the joint statement said.

The rapper expressed full confidence in Ghana's legal system, the
Police and Prison Service.
