According to reports circulating widely on social media, Showboy has been released based from prison and is set to be deported to Ghana, having served four years in jail.
Showboy, a Ghanaian musician, socialite and social media commentator was given a six-year prison sentence in March 2019 for stabbing Junior US, a Ghanaian singer and Shatta Wale’s friend who was living in the US, after an argument. Junior US made it through the stabbing but passed away in a robbery in 2021.
Many people first blamed Showboy’s thugs for killing Junior, but that was later refuted once the true criminals were caught by the US Police.
In this recent development, Showboy, known in real life as Stephen Safo informed his followers on social media that he was being released from prison.
“Follow my new snap chat-Ahantan. I wish I was in Ghana lol. Anyways, I’m getting released tomorrow 06/07,2023 … my last night in prison! (sic)”.
Despite being detained, Showboy remained quite active on social media, sharing details about his life and the incidents that led to his arrest.
He claimed that Criss Waddle, the founder of the AMG Record label, which he is alleged to have co-founded, set him up in one of his posts from last year.
“5yrs ago Criss Waddle sent junior us to my house (apartment) … they set me up..my life hasnt been the same since then. July 3, 2016. I never forget this day. U can read the statement and see the lies they told police, came to court and denied everything and said they scared of me,” “Told court am a Gunsta .. prosecutor told me I got a Huge Ego and said I call the shot .. I was profiled .. if not Criss Waddle sending Junior to me to come pay me money he Criss Waddle owed ..all this never was going to happen .. Junior us was never my friend. That was Criss Waddle friend that hated on me out of jealousy .. I was set up by Criss Waddle and his friends. .thats the facts … still ain’t got no visit from Criss Waddle till today. .. haven’t seen him in 5yrs(sic),” he wrote at the time.
Then again Showboy gave a hint of his deportation in April this year in a Facebook post. This is what he said,
“Dem want deport me ..a make sad rough. .. a taya for life … if a come Ghana too Boyz want beat me especially criss waddle and shatta wale in friends lol …. make a sign for deportation or sit for another 1yr or 2 for immigration detention to fight for ma stay and still be on 9yrs probation. .. or to just sign for the deportation n come face death or happineass in Ghana …… lol am stressed, I can’t think far ..
