Ghanaian artiste, Samini hopes that the unity between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy would last for “as long as their careers.”
On Tuesday, June 4, Wale and Stonebwoy announced an end to their bitter rivalry during a press conference, and revealed plans to headline a joint concert on a yet-to-be announced date.
The rivalry came to a head at the 2019 Ghana Music Awards when Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage just before he was supposed to make a speech for his record win.
“I wouldn’t be the one to know the future of this reunion or unity,” stated Samini to Graphic Showbiz newspaper in a recent interview.
“All we hope for is that it serves its purpose and it lasts for as long as their careers will so that we don’t see anything that’s gonna come back to make this whole unity look like it was a joke or another scam.”
Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage just 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.
Organizers of the scheme, CharterHouse banned the two artistes indefinitely following the brawl, and asked them to return the plaques they won for awards on the night.
They both pleaded not guilty to the charge of offensive conduct to breaches of the peace on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.
Stonebwoy was also charged with an additional count of display of a weapon in a public place without permission. The charges were read to the artistes at the Agyebeng Court.
They were granted bail of 50, 000 Cedis each with one surety, and cautioned to be of good behaviour during the duration of the case.
The case has been adjourned to June 20, 2019.
