Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, per his public persona and outlook, easily comes across as one tough character.
That persona, according to his former manager, has a human side.
He sometimes easily breaks down.
Lawrence Asiamah Hanson known in showbiz as Bulldog, said he was shocked to see Shatta Wale cry uncontrollably when he was in cells for the alleged murder of Fennec Okyere.
Bulldog was arrested in May 2014 after investigations by the Homicide Unit of the Police Criminal Investigative Department (CID) pointed to him as the prime suspect of the murder of Kwaw Kesse’s manager Fennec Okyre.
Fennec Okyere was killed at his Manet Gardens residence on the Spintex Road, Accra on Thursday, March 13, 2014, by unknown assailants. He died at age 31.
During his time behind bars, Bulldog said he “actually realised that I was that strong. The only person who almost got me to be weak at that cell was Shatta Wale. The guy came there crying like a baby.”
He recounted that people hounded him asking when Shatta Wale would come to visit him in the cells.
