Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has announced he will no longer part of the Ghana Music Awards henceforth.

In a Facebook post Thursday, the controversial artiste broke the news of his decision the same time the organisers, Charterhouse, were locked up in a press conference to among other things announce sanctions against him and archrival Stonebwoy for a confusion they caused at the 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Background

Shatta Wale’s miscalculated moves at VGMA 2019 led to a pandemonium on stage where blows were exchanged between his fans and Stonebwoy’s fans.

Feeling threatened, Stonebwoy pulled a gun right on stage to defend himself but he was convinced to shelve it. Throughout these, SM fans and Bhim fans were throwing blows on stage.

Charterhouse had to cut transmission for well over one hour for tempers to cool down. Shatta Wale walked out of the auditorium amid ridicules from most people who were gathered at the Dome for the VGMA 2019.

It all started when Stonebwoy was announced as the winner for Reggae Dancehall Artist of the Year winner for the fifth time.

Shatta who had already posted on social media multiple times that he deserved the award walked to the stage with his gang for reasons best known to him.

Bhim fans who feared for the life of their boss resisted Shatta Wale’s gang and a fight broke out. But after the fight, Shatta Wale has shared on his social media handles that he wanted to congratulate Stonebwoy.
