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.
