Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale in Police custody after VGMA fracas

Dancehall rivals, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are currently in police custody following Saturday night’s fracas at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).

Joy News sources say the two artistes are being held at the headquarters of the Accra Regional Police Command on Sunday for interrogation.

Camps of the two rival artistes clashed on stage while Stonebwoy was about to give a speech after winning the coveted Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year at the music awards last night.

The brawl started when Shatta Wale (Charles Nii Armah Mensah) walked up to the stage with his multitude of fans while Stonebwoy was about to give a speech for the award.

Although some have said the My Level hitmaker climbed up the stage with his fans to congratulate Stonebwoy for the award, others say they were there to heckle Stonebwoy.

The confusion that ensued was witnessed by millions of Ghanaians watching the show.

Stonebwoy, known in private life as Livingstone Etse Satekla, also pulled a gun on stage in what some believe he did in self-defence.

Before his arrest, Shatta Wale had posted on his Twitter handle that the fight on stage was a disgrace to Ghana’s music industry.

Stonebwoy, however, apologised for the brawl when he came back on stage.

Meanwhile, police have arrested one person suspected to have used pepper spray, during the brawl.

Speaking to Joy News, the Director of Operations at the Command, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kwasi Ofori, said the pepper spray could have demobilised everybody in the hall, including the police hence his arrest.

“That one is a very dangerous thing. In such occurrences we are professionals and need to avoid stamped or using force,” he explained.
