Ghanaian police has cleared Nigerian singer, Barry Jhay, who was suspected of allegedly killing his record label boss, Kashy Gordon.
KanyiDaily recalls that Godson, the CEO of CashNation Entertainment, was said to have committed suicide by jumping from his apartment’s balcony in Ghana
But a few minutes before he fell to his death, Barry Jhay and Kashy Godson had a misunderstanding which allegedly led to a serious fight between them.
Barry was tagged as the prime suspect, and was later arrested by the police in connection to Godson’s death in the early morning of Sunday, March 7, 2021.
The Nigerian singer announced on Tuesday via his Instagram page that he has been cleared of murder charges following an investigation carried out by the Ghanaian police.
A report from an investigation carried out by the Ghanaian police revealed that on that Sunday night, 27-year-old Godson, his girlfriend and Berry checked into a three-bedroom apartment at Beauford Bridge Hotel, Adabraka, Accra.
Barry Jhay and a Ghanaian producer were recording in a separate room when Kashy’s girlfriend rushed in to tell the singer that his label boss was behaving abnormally.
An apprehensive Barry Jhay then reportedly sought to check what was going on, so he rushed into the room, where Kashy became violent and attacked him with a water closet cover, a pressing iron and also pulled out a gun.
Upon seeing this, Barry Jhay reportedly ran away from the scene. It was further learnt that an eyewitness and CCTV footage corroborated the claim.
The police also said that an occupant of a nearby apartment rushed to see the cause of the rancour and waited outside for thirty minutes from where he/she saw Godson jump from his balcony.
Barry Jhay’s team also released footages from cameras at the apartment building that showed the singer exiting the building before Gordon fell from the fourth floor.
Barry Jhay can be seen exiting the hotel in perceived anger at 12:42:06. At 12:42:19 am, Barry Jhay can be seen outside the building pointing back at the building, possibly ranting. At 12:53:16 am, Kashy can be seen falling to his death.
According to Medical Pathologist, Dr. O. Owusu Afriyie, “the cause of the deceased death was a serious head injury as a result of fall from height.”
Police in the statement signed by Police Superintendent, Albert K. Tang revealed that they received information about Gordon’s death and immediately got to the scene.
They also corroborated Berry’s legal team’s account of Gordon behaving abnormally and also confirmed that the singer was nowhere near the label boss when he plunged to death.
Case docket has since been closed and Barry Jhay ceases to be a suspect.
KanyiDaily recalls that two years ago, Barry Jhay revealed how Davido saved him from the illegal deal he signed with Kizz Daniel’s record label ‘Flyboy Inc’.
