The man who fatally stabbed a musician from Cape Coast in February 2021 has been given the death penalty by hanging.
Bright Ellis, also known in Cape Coast as Shadow, was found guilty and given a death sentence on Wednesday (January 18, 2023) by the Cape Coast High Court, presided over by Justice Emmanuel Lodoh.
Bright Ellis stabbed the dancehall performer “Unruly Grank,” real name Emmanuel Aikins, to death during a fight at the Orange Beach Resort in Cape Coast on February 7, 2021.
The 24-year-old musician, also known as “Soft Metal” in Cape Coast’s music scene, was stabbed as a result of an argument with Bright Ellis.
Ellis is a craftsman who is 27 years old.
Following the event, Aikins was declared dead when he arrived at the Cape Coast Hospital.
