Okyeame Quophi formally of erstwhile Akyeame has fired shots at dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy for bringing a gun on stage at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards held last night.
Proceedings were brought to a halt for over 30 minutes after Shatta Wale started causing commotion on stage when Stonebwoy received his award for Reggae Dancehall Artist of the year and was about to give his message for the award he had won.
This led policemen introducing tear gas to help restore peace in the atmosphere.
Okyeame Quophi posted on his Facebook timeline;
This is Absurd.Security allowed a gun into the VGMA auditorium?Stone boy,I am highly disappointed in you.You can never cover your fear with a weapon.
Until Shatta's intention was known,your gun pulling act for someone known to be cool and collected was very unnecessary.Bringing a gun was premeditated and it's not cool.I dont know why Ghana police who were on site did not cuff you in the first place.You deserve an invitation to the police headquarters.
Now I know Shatta is Violent by mouth and Stoneboy is violent by Weapons.
This is my wall,this is my opinion.I reserve all rights.Anyone who insults me rather than expressing your their opinion I believe will only be displaying their ignorance.
Reggae-dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has however apologized for the near fisticuff that ensued between his fans and fans of his arch-rival Shatta Wale at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in the early hours of Sunday, 19 May 2019.
For the first time in the 20-year history of the Ghana Music Awards, organisers have failed to announce the winner of the ‘Artiste of the Year’ category.
The organisers failed to announce a winner due to a fracas between two of the nominees of that category during the awards ceremony on Saturday.
Hosts of the Awards this year, Kwame Sefa Kayi and Berla Mundi announced that the winner for that category and the ‘Most Popular Song of the Year’ will be announced on a later date.
They noted that the decision not to announce winners for the two categories was due to a fight that broke out between the camps of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
It’s unclear what Shatta Wale’s intentions were considering the fact that the two, over the years, have hardly seen eye to eye.
