With this announcement, the late Ebony Reigns who won the 2018 VGMA Artiste of the Year still reigns.
The board’s pronouncement came after the fracas between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale on Saturday, May 18, 2019, during the awards night.
It all happened when Shatta Wale and his team allegedly went onto the stage to congratulate Stonebwoy for winning the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.

Stonebwoy’s camp then thought Shatta Wale’s action was an attack which forced the Top Skanka crooner to pull out a gun.

Kwarteng also noted that, his daughter will still reign as the Artiste of the Year.
