Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have pleaded not guilty to charges they are facing over their involvement in the disturbances that marred the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Shatta Wale is facing a charge of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace while Stonebwoy has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace and display of a firearm in public without permission. The two were put before a court in Accra today.

The court presided over by Magistrate Isaac Addo granted the two bail at a cost of Fifty thousand cedis with one surety each.

Lawyers Jerry Avenorgbor and Selali Wonya represented Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy respectively. The case has been adjourned to June 20, 2019.

The two were cautioned to be of good behaviour while the case is ongoing. The scuffle on the stage last Saturday has been a subject of conversations in the country as it has been widely reported in local and international media.

While Stonebwoy was up the VGMA stage taking his award, Shatta Wale, his rival on the music scene, was seen moving towards the stage with a host of others presumed to be his fans.

The security on stage provided cover for Stonebwoy and the few others already up to the stage but Stonebwoy’s manager allegedly engaged in fisticuffs with a member of the team moving with Shatta Wale.

The incident degenerated into pandemonium with one Nii Amoo squirting ‘pepper spray’ into the air. Stonebwoy also pulled out a gun in the process.
