Ghanaian Dancehall artist Shatta Wale, aka Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, was arrested on Monday for driving with a convoy and obstructing traffic in Accra, Ghana.

The ‘Dancehall King’ singer was driving with a number of motorbikes and forcing his way through the traffic leading to all other vehicles being pushed aside according to Supt. Yaw Tetegah of Airport Police Commander.
Supt. Tetegah confirmed the arrest in an interview with Myjoyonline.com, stated that Shatta Wale was arrested around the Shangri-La traffic light at about 4:30 pm.
A Police officer from the Police Headquarters “got him arrested” after witnessing the obstruction he had caused.
Supt. Yaw Tetegah said he could not determine the number of motorbikes involved in the incident but they sped off as soon as they saw the police.
When asked whether Shatta Wale was charged for the incident, he disclosed that the 2014 Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year winner was “taken to the Police Charge Office, his particulars were taken and he was given a warning letter.”
He said after the warning the dancehall artiste was allowed to go.
