Ghanaian artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been banned by organizers of the Ghana Music Awards for an unspecific period of time.
The artistes are to return the awards they won at the 2019 edition of the awards scheme.
The decision was made known by CharterHouse during a press conference Thursday following brawl between the artistes.
Nat Brew Amandzeba, board member of the scheme stated that the actions of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale “brought the name of the event into disrepute.”
He added that the decision was taken after “careful deliberations” and “extensive consultation” with stakeholders in the music industry.
Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage minutes before he was supposed to make a speech for his record win at the Ghana Music Awards.
The announcement that he had won the “Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ category for the fifth consecutive time was met with displeasure by Shatta Wale.
Stonebwoy apologized on stage, and later released a press statement apologizing for “the part” his conduct played in the incident.
The event was held inside a newly constructed dome close to the Accra International Conference Centre.
