Drama ensued in court today when reggae musician, Ekow Micah, who is standing trial for possessing substances suspected to marijuana, refused to speak to his counsel and rather opted to speak directly to the judge.A journalist, Edem Mensah of Ghanaian Times, who was in court, reported that Ekow Micah entered the Accra Circuit Court with his arms raised up calling on the judge.
Trial judge, Judge Aboagye Tandoh, noticing the gesture, asked the musician to channel whatever information he has through his lawyer, David Percy, which he refused.
Several attempts by the judge and court officials to get Ekow to speak to his lawyer proved futile prompting the judge to call for a recess.
Asked why Ekow was requesting to speak with the judge directly, Edem said he suspects the musician has lost confidence in his lawyer and was trying to inform the judge.
The journalist said, the reggae musician accused the lawyer of not being interested in the case because he has not heard from him since the last adjournment on September 10.
Ekow refused to talk to his lawyer prompting another to mediate and attempt to resolve the impasse. The case has however been adjourned to Friday September 25, 2015.
On August 4, Micah was arrested by the Airport Police over an alleged extortion case against Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan currently under investigation.
The following day, the Police and the accused person visited his house to conduct a search and in the process, a quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp was found.

This is how the car looks after the accident

“I do thank God for rescuing me and my team from this fatal accident this afternoon. We had a great show yesternight in Mampong and on our way back to Accra this afternoon, my two cars got this fatal damage. But in all, I give thanks to God.”

“No they won’t be wrong; they won’t be right either. Because, at the time I recorded it, I was in total agreement with my perception; but I could become friends with one of those guys tomorrow and I may be sad if something I have predicted comes to pass. At the moment, I wouldn’t have any feeling of remorse if any comes to pass”, he disclosed on Radio Univers.
The member of music duo, FOKN Bois, however stated that the lyrics of the song is only a prediction; not a wish.
“Prediction is different from a wish. I just predicted how they will die and not wished them dead. I’m not wishing for them to die. This is the style for which they will die,” he said.
