|Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale at 2019 VGMA Awards|
The confusion started when Shatta Wale and his militants rushed onto the stage when Stonebwoy was about to receive his award.
Afraid of what could happen, Stonebwoy quickly pulled out a gun.
The security officials at the Dome started spraying the patrons of the award with pepper spray and the guests at the VIP stand were quickly rushed out.
The show was temporarily put on hold amidst the pandemonium in the Dome and some of the patrons started leaving the auditorium when the chaos started.
It is important to note that Stonebwoy has consistently won the Reggae Dancehall Artiste of the Year for 5 years in a row.
Rev. Mrs. Mary Ghansah, Prof. Kofi Abraham and Obuoba J.A. Adofo the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Shatta Wale’s ‘My Level’ and ‘Gringo’ wins Highlife Song of the Year and the Reggae, Dancehall Song of the Year respectively.
Unlike previous editions where the focus was on who wins the coveted Artiste of the Year category, this year’s being the 20th has shifted the argument to who among the ten shortlisted acts will be crowned Artiste of the Decade.
