Stonebwoy has apologized for pulling a gun at the 20th edition of the VGMA – Meanwhile, Shatta Wale has called on the police to arrest Stonebwoy Following the brawl at the 20th edition of the Ghana Music Awards, dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has rendered an unqualified apology to patrons and Ghanaians for pulling a gun on stage. The winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ said he pulled out his gun “out of natural instincts.” “I am really sorry for the incident that happened earlier on and I only had to react out of natural instincts because we all know how premeditative some people can be
“We’ve seen on social media the treats and everything so we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened like you guys saw,” he said. Stonebwoy further added that “I come in peace and I go in peace and I apologise to the whole masses of Ghana that the Awards is going to continue. Thank you very music for supporting my music, for supporting everybody else’s music…by their deeds we have all seen”. A fracas broke out between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale and their respective entourages as Stonebwoy was on stage to accept his award for the winning the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’
Shatta Wale and his entourage rushed the stage whilst Stonebwoy was there, creating a commotion during which Stonebwoy reportedly pulled his gun. It’s unclear what Shatta Wale’s intentions were considering the fact that the two have hardly seen eye to eye in the past years.
There are suggestions that Shatta Wale, who was clearly disappointed after his arch-rival was announced the winner of that category, was walking up to the stage to celebrate with Stonebwoy. Stonebwoy, who was picking up the ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ for the fifth time, was about to deliver his acceptance speech for the award, when the incident happened.
