The Ghana Police Service is preparing to prosecute budding hip-life star Wisa for unzipping his genitals on stage during a live performance.
An animated Wisa went berserk and stunned patrons at the ‘December to Remember’ annual musical concert organized by Citi FM when he released his manhood on stage and rubbed it behind his female dancer.
Wisa has since apologised for exposing his manhood at the Accra International Conference Centre.
“I have disappointed myself, my family, my hard-working management team, Citi FM and the audience, who paid hard-earned money to be entertained but instead went away feeling anything but entertained.
“Most importantly, I disappointed my God. I am exceedingly sorry for what I have done,” his statement read in part.
However, the police, who arrested and released the ‘Ekiki Me’ hit singer on bail, said an apology is not enough and the artiste must face the law.
“For anybody to expose his private part in public is something that you can’t think of, provided the person’s faculties are working so he has been invited and he honoured the invitation,” ASP Afia Tenge, spokesperson of the Greater Accra regional police command told Accra-based Joy FM.
“The police then arrested him and after taking his statement he has been granted bail and he is supposed to report when the holidays are over for us to prosecute him.”
ASP Tenge noted the act amounts to “gross indecency” hence the need to take the issue up in court.
She opined: “He [Wisa] admitted that he has done it and actually did not know why he did that… the act amounts to gross indecency and it’s a misdemeanor and to the extent of that gross indecency the court will determine that.”
Organisers of the December to Remember event – Citi FM – have distanced themselves from the act following immense public outcry and condemnation.
Programmes manager Jessica Opare Saforo described the act as “unimaginable and despicable.”
