However, Bulldog is not having it anymore as he has taken his online beef with the proclaimed controversial dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale to the next level.
Bulldog has filed a writ with the Accra High Court seeking damages for what he claims to be defamation as well as the same for what he claims to be Shatta Wale’s intentional publishing of false information about him.

5. General damages for defamation.
6. Special damages for defamation.

On November 2, 2022, Shatta Wale claimed in a social media post that his old manager was involved in the death of Fennec Okyere, Kwaw Kese’s ex-manager.
In response to Shatta Wale’s allegations, the Ghana Police Service later launched an inquiry into the situation.
