Reggae/Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has rendered an unqualified apology to patrons and Ghanaians for pulling a gun on stage at the 20th edition of the Ghana Music Awards. According to him, he pulled out his gun “out of natural instincts.”
A brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps at the 20th anniversary of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Sunday.
Pandemonium broke out shortly after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’. This is the fifth consecutive time he is winning the award.
So Shatta Wale and his camp/fans really want us to believe they were going on stage “to congratulate Stonebwoy”
Do you congratulate someone by aggressively pushing their manager and having your fans jump on stage too?
When Stonebwoy came on stage to accept his second award for the night, ‘Best Collaboration of the Year’, he apologized for the incident.
“I really sorry for the incident that happened earlier on and I only had to react out of natural instincts because we all know how premeditative some people can be. We’ve seen on social media the treats and everything so we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened like you guys saw,”he said.
Stonebwoy added that “I come in peace and I go in peace and I apologise to the whole masses of Ghana that the Awards is going to continue. Thank you very music for supporting my music, for supporting everybody else’s music…by their deeds we have all seen.”
