The Accra Circuit Court has fined artiste manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, also known as Bullgod, GH₵48,000 for threatening President Akufo-Addo on TV.
Bulldog was dragged to court on January 9, 2021, after he said President Akufo-Addo will not finish his four-year tenure if he failed to pay Menzgold customers during an interview on United Television (UTV).
The popular artiste manager was charged with offensive conduct to the breach of the peace.
The controversial artiste manager pleaded not guilty to the charge insisting he never intended to threaten the president.
He however claimed that he only appealed to the President to intervene in the interest of customers of Menzgold.
Meanwhile, the presiding Judge, Justice Evelyn Asamoah, in her judgment noted that the statement was not an appeal considering its gravity.
“The statement threatened the President and was meant to incite people against the First Gentleman of the land”, the judge added.
The artiste manager cum entertainment critic is expected to pay the said amount or in default spend 40 days in prison.
