A close pal of Shatta Wale, Samuel Frimpong, alias Medikal, is also scheduled to reappear in court today.
He was arrested by Police for brandishing a weapon in an Instagram video posted in September. He has since pleaded not guilty to the charge of displaying arms and ammunition.
The court had also remanded him to prison custody but he was released on the same day Shatta Wale and co secured bail.
