Ernest Abban, the Senior Administrative Director at the hospital’s Public Relations Unit in Kumasi confirmed this to citifmonline.com.

He however told citifmonline.com that the rapper is “responding to treatment.”
The artiste has been charged for allegedly smoking in public, a substance suspected to be Indian hemp.
He was arrested by the Police in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region at a drinking spot close to the popular ‘+2 Pub’ in Nhyiaeso.
On Tuesday a Circuit court in Kumasi denied Kwaw Kese bail for the fourth consecutive time, which means he will spend the Christmas and new year celebrations in jail.
The case has been adjourned to January 5, 2015.
Kwaw Kese campaigns against drugs
He has begun a massive campaign against the use of narcotic drugs by the youth.
A joint statement signed by the management of Kwaw Kese and the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), said Kwaw Kese remains committed to the ‘Say No To Drugs Campiagn’ as is evident in his support to Prisons and outreach programs each year.”
“He challenges the youth of Ghana “to be positive, be patriotic and to do all they can to follow their dreams,” the statement further said.
The joint statement further called on Ghanaians to desist from making further statements that will be prejudicial in Kwaw Kese’s quest for Justice.”
