Charter House and Mr. Iyoila Ayoade had gone to court in relation to four separate videos they alleged were defamatory and uploaded on social media platforms by Shatta Wale.

At the court premises Mr Lawrence Agblo, a Senior Events Executive of Charter House Ghana, told journalists that his outfit had just been served with the motion and they would have to go through before acting.

According to Mr Agblo, Charter House could not act on the motion adding they would have to decide on it by tomorrow or the days ahead.

Mr Agblo said they needed to see what was contained in the said motion before acting.

Parties in the matter are expected to come back to court on November 6.

Although Shatta Wale was not in court, his father was seen in the court room.

On October 20, this year, the court prevented Shatta Wale from repeating four videos in relation to Charter House.

The court further restrained him from making new videos and pasting on his Facebook page concerning Charter House and its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ayoade.

This followed the granting of an interlocutory injunction filed by Charter House and its CEO in the court presided over by Justice Naa Adoley Azu.

At the court, Counsel for Shatta Wale prayed for adjournment since they had written to the plaintiffs to settle the matter out of court.

Mr Egbert Faibille, counsel for Charter House however at the last sitting, disagreed to the defence submission, saying Shatta Wale had not shown any remorse in respect of the matter because he had gone ahead with another video.

The court therefore asked the defendants to file the defence if any so that if the out of court settlement failed, it would go ahead to hear the matter.

It, therefore, adjourned the case.

Charter House and Mr. Ayoade had gone to court in relation to four separate videos they alleged were defamatory and uploaded on social media platforms.

The two Plaintiffs were praying the court to declare that the Dancehall King had defamed them with the four separate videos he recorded and uploaded to his Facebook page.

According to the plaintiffs, two of the said videos were uploaded on September 23 and September 24.

The Plaintiffs are also praying the court to order Shatta Wale to render ?an unqualified apology and retraction of each of the four separate videos with the approval by the Plaintiffs prior to the recording and uploading? to his Facebook page and to remain on his page for one month within a week of the judgment.

The Plaintiffs again sought the court for an ?order of perpetual injunction retraining the Defendant, his agents, hirelings, manager(s), privies and assigns or any person through him and howsoever described from making and/or repeating the defamatory statements or similar statements in the nature of the ones complained in the video recordings.?

The Plaintiffs are also demanding that Shatta Wale send apology in respect of the four videos to all media houses and online media that he aired the defamatory videos complained of and ensure that same and/or published at his own expense.
