Organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards following the brawl at the 20th edition of the awards night has banned both dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale indefinitely from the awards scheme and has also stripped off their awards.  

Amandzeba Nat Brew, a member of the VGMA board made this known to the public in a press conference held earlier today May 23, 2019, in Accra. 

The board has, however, asked the two dancehall artistes to return the plagues they won on the night of the event.

It was also announced at the press conference that Artiste of the Year and Most Popular Song of the Year categories that were withheld last Saturday at the 20th Ghana Music Awards has been annulled.

This comes on the back of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy engaging in a scuffle which marred the beauty of the awards and both artistes were set to win one of the two awards.

This means that 2018 Artiste of the Year late Ebony still holds the crown.

Background

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.

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