Stonebwoy had been called on stage to receive the Reggae-Dancehall Artiste of the Year award beating Shatta Wale, samini, and others.
Unexpectedly, Shatta Wale who was seated in the crowd decided to show up on the stage during Stonebwoy's speech and it turned into a very chaotic situation leading Stonebwoy to pull a gun.
The altercation brought the event to a halt for a lot of minutes before calm was restored.
Speaking on the incident in an interview on Joy FM which was monitored by YEN.com.gh, the Charterhouse boss added that the VGMA had its own rules and regulations and they will soon announced whatever sanction they have for both Shatta wale and Stonebwoy.
“What happened at the last VGMA was rather unfortunate. We unreservedly apologize for that. We had body scanners on the premises to check for weapons and other unwanted items. Nonetheless we may not have been able to scan every single person that came through the gates”
“Our music industry is too big and two personalities cannot be the downfall of our industry. The industry existed way before they joined it and will continue to exist . The industry will continue to thrive, VGMA will move to higher level and I believe these two ( @shattawalegh & @stonebwoyb ) artistes will find a way to make peace. We will do our best to facilitate the process . We have our own rules and regulations pertaining the VGMAS, and we will announce whatever sanction they have for both Shatta wale and Stonebwoy soon.“
