The artistes were interrogated at the headquarters of the Accra Regional Police Command.

The ‘Mama’ act pulled out a gun on stage Sunday dawn 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 crew stormed the stage leading to a temporary halt of the music event, and a brawl between members of the entourage of the artistes.

Stonebwoy apologized on stage, and later released a press statement apologizing for “the part” his conduct played in the incident.

The two artistes have been going against each other – especially in the past couple of years over who is better, has a bigger following and international acclaim.

The rivalry between the two artistes has extended to their fan base.

In early 2018, when Wale joined Stonebwoy as a label mate on  Zylofon Music, fans wondered what would happen to the rivalry.

“Right now, you hear say people dey think; ‘so what you go do Stonebwoy?’. You see Stonebwoy, for here [Zylofon] he be my brother but for town he be my enemy.” stated Wale to his cheering fans when he was officially unveiled.
