US-based Ghanaian rapper, ShowBoy, who stabbed and bit an acquaintance inside a Lawrenceville apartment during an attack that was filmed will serve six years in prison.

According to rumours the stabbed victim Junior is said to be a close friend of Shatta Wale and Showboy is also reported to be an estranged member of Criss Waddle’s AMG Business movement.

Sam Safo, 25, was convicted of aggravated battery for the July 2016 incident, which took place at the Wesley Herrington apartments, the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release Friday.

The witness who recorded the altercation told police the men were arguing when Safo bit the victim in the face and stabbed him in the chest, armpit and behind his ear.

Five days later, Safo called Gwinnett police to report that he was robbed at knifepoint, although he refused to meet with police, did not give them access to the crime scene and failed to mention that he stabbed anyone, the release said.

Safo was arrested a month later in Maryland and extradited to Georgia to face charges here, records show.

At trial, Safo testified that he feared for his life.

During questioning, however, he admitted inviting both men inside his apartment and acknowledged that neither of them had weapons, according to the DA’s release.

Prosecutors also showed the Gwinnett jury social media posts made by Safo ahead of his trial that showed him threatening to murder the victim for reporting him to authorities.

Safo was convicted of aggravated battery but acquitted of aggravated assault.

He was handed a 15-year sentence with six years to serve in custody.
