NEWS: Nhyiraba Kojo Released From Jail After By Sekondi High Court

Nhyiraba Kojo, a popular Ghanaian musician and owner of the NK City Nightclub, has been released from jail after serving 30 days for contempt of court.

Kojo was sentenced to jail on April 28, 2023, after he failed to comply with an order from the Sekondi High Court to reduce noise pollution from his nightclub. The court had ordered Kojo to install soundproofing in his nightclub after residents of the Fijai neighborhood complained about the noise.

Kojo's lawyer, Philip Fiifi Buckman, said that his client had already installed the soundproofing before he was sentenced to jail, but that he had not been able to provide the court with documentation proving that the work had been done.

Buckman said that Kojo had appealed the court's decision and that he was hopeful that he would be released from jail soon.

On May 12, 2023, Kojo was released from jail after the Sekondi High Court granted his appeal but he was not required to serve any more jail time.

Kojo's release from jail was met with mixed reactions from the public. Some people were happy to see him released, while others felt that he should have been punished more severely for his contempt of court.

Kojo has not commented publicly on his release from jail. However, his lawyer, Buckman, said that his client was "happy to be out of jail" and that he was "looking forward to getting back to his music career."

Kojo is a well-known musician in Ghana. He has released several albums and has won several awards, including the Ghana Music Award for Best Hiplife Artiste in 2012.

Kojo's case has highlighted the issue of noise pollution in Ghana. Many people in Ghana live in close proximity to nightclubs and bars, and the noise from these establishments can be a major nuisance.

The government of Ghana has taken some steps to address the problem of noise pollution, but more needs to be done. The government needs to work with businesses and residents to find ways to reduce noise levels and improve the quality of life for everyone.
