Award winning Reggae/dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla aka Stonebwoy has been arrested by the police according to reports; he pulled a gun on stage whilst he received an award.
This follows the commotion that occurred between Stonebwoy and fellow dancehall artiste, Shata Wale when the former was about receiving the award for Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year during last Saturday’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA).
There are also reports that the police have invited Shatta Wale as well to assist in investigations.
Explaining himself after the incident, Shatta Wale claimed he wanted to go and congratulate Stonebwoy for the award. However, Stonebwoy’s team misinterpreted the move as an attempt to protest against the award going to their favorite musician.
Stonebwoy has since apologized for pulling the gun when he was back on stage to accept the award for ‘Songwriter of the Year’.
“I am really sorry for the incident that happened earlier on and I only had to react out of natural instincts because we all know how premeditative some people can be. We’ve seen on social media the treats and everything so we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened as you guys saw. I come in peace and I go in peace and I apologize to the whole masses of Ghana that the Awards is going to continue. Thank you very much for supporting my music, for supporting everybody else’s music. By their deeds we have all seen [them].”
