“IF it be Possible As Far It Depends On You, Live Peaceably With All Men..
Romans 12:18 The Wise Shall Inherit Glory.. But Shame Shall Be The Promotion Of Fools.. Proverbs 3:35”
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.
