According to the information reaching us, AMA closed down the spot known as “Diamond Pub” because they lack a permit to operate. The Accra Metropolitan Assembly requires operators of hospitality services in Ghana to get permits before starting operation.
From indications, it would seem Shatta Michy, wife of Shatta Wale and operator of the pub, failed to get a permit from the AMA.
According to reports, Michy was at the pub when the AMA stormed the location to lock up the place despite her pleas.
A visit this morning showed that the inscription by the AMA on the building, asking for a permit to be produced had been painted over.
When the said pub opened, it generate a lot of media attention after musicians Ara B and others “laughed” at Shatta Wale for opening what they termed a “ContainerPub” for his wife despite his several display of owning “too much money” in public.
