Popular Ghanaian musician/socialite Showboy to be deported to Ghana

Popular Ghanaian musician and socialite, Sam Safo widely known as Showboy is said to be deported to Ghana after serving four years in jail for stabbing a friend.


Showboy who announced his release from prison today, June, 7, on Instagram yesterday said he wanted to be in Ghana.

“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)".

Showboy was sentenced to serve six years in prison in March 2019 for stabbing Junior US, a US based Ghanaian musician during a tussle.

Junior US survived the stabbing but was later killed in a robbery attack in 2021.

At the time of Junior’s death, many people accused Showboy’s “men” for carrying out the crime but that was disputed when the real culprits were later apprehended by the US Police.

Showboy had a good relationship with Criss Waddle

Even though Showboy was in detention, he was quite active on social media giving details of his life and events leading to his incarceration.

 In one of his posts last year, he accused Criss Waddle, founder of AMG Record label, which he is said to be  co-founder for setting him up.

5yrs ago Criss Waddle sent junior us to my house (apartment) … they set me 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.

Perhaps, 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 ..

Sometimes I think God  don’t like me”.

till today. .. haven't seen him in 5yrs "

"Being doing time for almost 2 and half years now ... still depressed ..still suffering mentally ... I am not innocent ,I was attacked first and I defended myself by stabbing. .I dont have control off ma adrenaline ..I did whatever to survive at the moment. .THEY SET ME UP ..TOOK MY FREEDOM FROM ME .... U ASK WHY AM MENTALLY UNSTABLE..THIS IS .. I DONT HAVE NO FRIEND ,NOBODY TO TRUST ... JUST FAKE LOVE ALL AROUND ME (sic)".
