Medikal

Management of embattled rapper Medikal has urged his fans to support him with their prayers as he is remanded in prison custody.

In an Instagram post, Medikal’s Road Manager, Flowdelly, thanked the general public, especially his fans, for their overwhelming support and love for the singer.

“Management sincerely apologises for the absence of AMG Medikal on all the events he has been booked to perform this weekend,” part of a notice dated October 22, 2021 read.

The rapper was billed to headline an MTN-sponsored programme dubbed Suncity Music Festival alongside his colleague and Afrobeats star Kelvyn Boy in Sunyani on Saturday.

Moments after Medikal was remanded, Kelvyn Boy took to social media to announce that the event has been rescheduled. He added that a new date will be communicated later.

“Sorry Sunyani!! We will have to reschedule this one. A new date will be communicated soon!! (sic),” he wrote.

The rapper will also miss another event in which he had been billed alongside Tulenkey.

The event, Jagger Rave Concert, is expected to take place at Obuasi tonight on Friday, October 22.

Medikal was remanded in prison custody for five days by an Accra Circuit court on Friday following his arrest.

The artiste, born Samuel Adu Frimpong, was charged with unlawful display of arms and ammunition to which he pleaded not guilty.

The rapper’s wife, Fela Makafui and some members of his management team were sighted at the court premises ahead of the hearing.

He was chauffeured away in a police pick-up truck amid a heavy security presence.

Medikal’s arrest on Thursday came just hours after his industry mate and friend, Shatta Wale, was remanded in police custody for one week.
