We earlier reported that fight broke out when Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ at the award ceremony which held last night at the new dome of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
Unexpectedly, Shatta Wale and his crew members stormed the stage when Stonebwoy was about receiving the award.
Afraid of what could happen, Stonebwoy quickly pulled out a gun.
He was consequently arrested and handcuffed by security operatives at the venue of the event.
The singer was later released and announced as a winner in another category ‘Best Collaboration of the Year’.

While stepping on stage to receive the award, 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.”
