Actress Fella Makafui is trying all she can to get her husband to adjust to life on the outside after spending barely a week in prison.
Medikal was released on a GHS100,000 bail with one surety after spending five days in the Ankaful Maximum Security Prison for brandishing a weapon on social media.
In a video posted on Fella Makafui’s Instagram stories, the actress could be seen unpacking the brand new iPhone 13 alongside other accessories with the caption “had to surprise husby with 13 for the pain…”

The court presided over by Judge Emmanuel Essandoh remanded the musician into prison custody despite counsel for the Ghanaian rapper, Emmanuel Yeboah Gyan, prayed the court to grant his client bail as he is a law-abiding citizen and had family on standby to meet the bail conditions.
But the prosecution opposed the plea, arguing that the individual rights of Medikal to bail are subservient to the community interest, which ought to be protected. He further argued that parts of the case are still under investigation.
Presenting the statement of the case, the prosecution said the accused person is a popular musician. In the month of September, 2021, whilst in his car, the accused without any reasonable excuse displayed a Ruger 9mm pistol and posted the video on his Snapchat social media platform.
“On 26/9/2021, the video of the weapon he displayed on the Snapchat went viral and Adomonline published same. On 21/10/2021, the Police acting on intelligence arrested the accused and handed him to the Regional Criminal Investigations Department for investigation. The accused admitted the offence in his investigation caution statement. After investigation., the accused was charged with the offence and arraigned before the Court,” the prosecution said.
