The Sekondi High Court on Thursday, May 11, released the renowned hip-life musician and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the popular night club NK City at Fijai from prison.
Nhyiraba Kojo was convicted to 30 days in prison on April 27, 2023, for contempt in a complaint filed by three Fijai neighbours over noise from his nightclub.
Following Nhyiraba Kojo’s failure to comply with the court’s interlocutory injunction order to stop the noise at the nightclub, ensure soundproof installation at the NK City Nightclub, and submit a report to the court, the court sentenced him to imprisonment.
Nhyiraba Kojo only served 2 weeks out of the 30 days sentence.
However after his sentencing, his Lawyer, Philip Fiifi Buckman speaking to Skyy News said Nhyiraba Kwadwo has taken the necessary steps to meet the demands of the court by reducing the noise pollution, however, they are yet to get any credible institution to measure the noise level and give a report that will be presented to the court.
He said, “Indeed he did all that the court ordered him to do, if you pass in front of the club right now, he has removed all the speakers and improved the soundproof system.”
He said for this reason, the court sentenced his client to 30 days imprisonment for failure to present the report to the court.
