An Accra Circuit Court has adjourned the case of Eugene Ashe, aka Wisa, a Hiplife Artistes’ who is accused of displaying his penis on stage to April 12.
This was after the court was informed by his counsel, Mr. Jerry Avernogbor that his client had travelled out of the jurisdiction and may be there for some days. Defence counsel provided details of his visa and travelling documents to show that he was on a national assignment outside the country.
The Court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, therefore obliged defence counsel’s prayer and adjourned the matter.
Wisa, of the “Ekikimi” fame, has been charged for allegedly exposing his penis while performing at the Accra International Conference Centre on December 24, 2015.
He has, however, denied the charge of gross indecent exposure and is on a GH¢8,000.00 bail with one surety.
Prosecution said on December 25, 2015, the Accra Regional Police was alerted over a nude video posted on the Internet from an unknown source, in which Wisa intentionally exposed his penis, while performing live on stage.
According to the prosecutor, Detective Inspector Judith B. Asante said the Police contacted the managers of Ashe to produce him at the Regional Police Headquarters for investigations, which they did.
The prosecution said investigations into the matter disclosed that on December 24, Airtel Communications Company and Citi FM, an Accra-based radio station, organised an event dubbed: “December to Remember,” which included the accused as a guest artiste.
In the course of the show, the accused, while dancing with a female dancer identified as Monica Kumadeh, suddenly removed his penis out of his pair of jeans and began to caress the buttocks of the dancer.
