Dancehall star Shatta Wale has announced his withdrawal from the Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) in the future.
According to him, his decision comes after a sober reflection and broad consultations on recent events.
Shatta Wale made the announcement on his social media pages on Thursday, May 23, 2019.
"Upon sober reflections of events in recent times and having made broader consultations, I wish to announce that I will not be part of the Ghana Music Awards scheme going forward. God bless!", Shatta Wale wrote on Instagram.
Shatta Wale's withdrawal comes just hours after he and Stonebwoy were granted a GHC50,000 bail each (GHC100,000 for the two) by the Adjaben District Court in Accra.
The two who were appearing in court for the first time over their fracas at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards pleaded not guilty to their respective charges.
While Shatta Wale is facing a charge of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, Stonebwoy has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace and display of a firearm in public without permission.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, 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 to Stonebwoy pulling a gun.
The altercation brought the event to a halt for a lot of minutes before calm was restored and the two were picked up to help in police investigations.
