He uploaded the videos on his face book page.

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

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

At the court Counsel for Shatta Wale prayed the court to adjourn the matter since they have written to the plaintiffs to settle the matter out of court.

Mr Egbert Faibille, counsel for Charter House disagreed to the defence submission, saying Shatta Wale has 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 their defence if any so that if the out of court settlement failed, it would go ahead to hear the matter.

It, therefore, adjourned the matter to November 3.

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 were 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 were also demanding that Shatta Wale sends 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.
