Many celebrities who were at the 20th edition of the Ghana Music Awards, had to leave the venue after a brawl broke out between the camps of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.

It all started when Shatta Wale and his team were seen going on stage after Stonebwoy was announced Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.

Pandemonium broke out when blows were exchanged between the two camps.

Stonebwoy then pulled a gun on stage after he felt threatened by Shatta Wale.

The incident degenerated into pandemonium with one Nii Amoo spraying pepper spray according to Police report.

Although they have both apologised, many people have expressed disappointment in the conduct of the two dancehall artistes.
