Legal Practitioner ,Maurice Ampaw who sued Musician/Comedian A-Plus for defamation has decided to cease fire on the pending legal battle after both parties reportedly met.
The case, which was first heard in court last week, was due for another sitting on November 14 but even before that, both parties appear to have squashed their beef.
In the video, which the musician claimed was captured when both met at the Aviation Social Centre in Accra, he is heard telling a reporter “I’m so excited to meet A-Plus in person, I’ve never met him before, I love him so much and I think that in everything that happens you have to give thanks to God. If this had not come, I don’t think that I would have had the opportunity to have a very [important] interaction with A-Plus and I think that it is better for us, it is better for the country that brothers will try to patch up any differences.”
A-Plus on his part told Myjoyonline.com that, “I think that the best thing we can do as men is when you have issues with somebody, especially somebody who is older than you and he takes the initiative to try and sort it, you don’t want to go into who was right and who was wrong.” He expressed profound appreciation to Dr Ampaw for withdrawing the matter from court.
Meanwhile in a new video posted online by musician/comedian, A Plus – the man he has supposedly sued for defamation – he is seen attesting to the fact that the whole brouhaha has somewhat made him popular.
Lawyer Ampaw sued A Plus for 1 million Ghana Cedis for some alleged defamatory comments he made about him on the social network (Facebook) where he called him ‘dumb’ in a post on the missing musician, Castro.
In the said Faceook post, A Plus thought Ampaw – who had promised to reveal the whereabouts of Castro by September 30 – was a waste of everybody’s time. He called him dumb in the process.
Ampaw wasn't happy with the tag and headed to court but now its all over and Ampaw is to file a motion in court to discontinue the case when it sits on the next adjourned date.
