Stonebwoy has apologized for pulling out a gun on stage at the 2019 Ghana Music Awards.
“I am 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,” expressed the artiste whilst accepting his award for ‘collaboration of the year.’
“We’ve seen on social media the threats and everything so we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened like you guys saw. 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 much for supporting my music, for supporting everybody else’s music…by their deeds we have all seen.”
The ‘Mama’ act pulled out a gun on stage minutes before he delivered a speech for his record win at the Ghana Music Awards.
The announcement that the former had won the “Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ category for the fifth consecutive time was met with displeasure by Shatta Wale.
Wale, and his supporters stormed the stage leading to a temporary halt of the music event.
The past few years has seen the escalation of the rivalry between the two artistes through interviews, and on Social Media.
