Business mogul and musician, Nhyiraba Kojowho served an imprisonment term at the Sekondi prison for contempt after some residents of Fijai dragged him to court over noise pollution from his NK City Night Club in Takoradi has shared how his jail term benefited the inmates.
“Water scarcity was one of the main challenges of the inmates at the Sekondi Prison. He mentioned that, the inmates were entitled to one bucket of water per day, which was supplied by the Ghana Fire Service. Sometimes, the inmates have to buy ‘pure water’ to bath” Nhyiraba Kojo said.
He further disclosed that, he helped to provide a source of reliable water for the prisoners. This was supported by Kofi Kinaata when he visited him at the prison.
The popular Hiplife musician and owner of NK City Nightclub, Nhyiraba Kojo, was convicted of contempt of court by the Sekondi Commercial High Court April 28, 2023.
The musician was found guilty of contempt by the court and ordered to serve the full 30-day sentence unless he can purge himself of the contempt.
The court, presided over by Justice Sedina Agbemava, found him guilty of failing to comply with an interlocutory injunction order to stop noise pollution from his nightclub and install soundproofing, which was filed by three residents of Fijai.
Out of the 30 days in prison, the businessman spent two weeks after the court found out that he adhered to their call to resolve the noise pollution.
