The 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), nearly turned bloody in the early hours of Sunday, May 19, 2019. As fans of dance hall artiste Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale clashed after the former was announced as the Reggae Dance hall Artiste of the Year.
An unhappy Shatta Wale and his fans had got off their seats and made their way to the podium, but were stopped by Stonebwoy and his fans and that led to a brawl.
At some point, Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage while the security operatives intervened by spraying pepper in the auditorium in an attempt to prevent a full-blown fight. Stonebwoy was later handcuffed and whisked away.
