Ghanaian Dancehall and reggae artiste,Stonebwoy, has been arrested for pulling a gun at his industry colleague, Shatta Waleat the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) 2019.
According to reports making the rounds, the gun-pulling happened after Stonebwoy was announced as the winner for the category of “Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year”; an award he is winning for the fifth time consecutively.
The circulating news stated that while Stonebwoy was about to give his acceptance speech, Shatta Wale started making his way towards the stage to Stonebwoy. The purpose for that move was not known but it didn’t take long before members from both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy’s camp started throwing blows at each other.
It was during this crisis that the winner of the Reggae/ Dancehall category pulled out a gun at Shatta Wale which his crew tried to shield from the public but wasn’t successful as the video made its way to the viral spot on social media.
Shatta Wale’s intention for walking up the stage to Stonebwoy’s direction was not known but according to Stonebwoy while later giving his speech, his action of pulling out a gun was instinctive considering the bad blood between both dancehall artistes which has lasted for over a year so far.
