The Greater Accra Regional Director of Operations of the Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori says the police is currently investigating Saturday’s brawl between the camps of Dancehall artistes Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, VGMAs.
He said the two musicians will be charged depending on the outcome of the investigation.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were on Sunday held by the Regional Police Command for questioning over the incident.
ACP Kwesi Ofori confirmed that the statements of the two artistes have been taken.
Rivalry between the two artistes, who have been battling for supremacy, got nasty during the VGMAs, temporarily halting the hitherto exciting event aimed at celebrating Ghanaian musicians.
Stonebwoy pulled out a gun while on stage to pick the coveted award for the Reggae and Dancehall Artiste of the Year.
His action follows a rather unceremonious attitude of Shatta Wale who mounted the stage with his ‘militants’ whilst Stonebwoy, flanked by his Bhim Nation squad, was about to address the enthusiastic crowd as has been the norm.
Armed military and police personnel had it tough quelling the chaotic situation that forced organisers of the event, Charter house to suddenly cut live transmission of the programme for close to an hour.
The motive for what many have described as a “rude” interruption by Shatta Wale, is yet to be known.
