Charterhouse Ghana, organizers of the Vodafon Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) have banned Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy indefinitely from participating in the scheme.
According to their decision, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy will “no longer take part in the nominations, selection and performance of the at the Vodafon Ghana Music Awards”.
This decision became necessary after the two dancehall artistes and their fans engaged in a brawl during the 2019 edition of the VGMAs.
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are also standing trial for disturbing public peace. Stonebwoy has also been charged with displaying a legal firearm without permission from the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
Shatta Wale only joined the VGMAs this year after a long break following his boycott of the scheme in 2013. But it seems his return only brought more trouble to him.
He has announced that moving forward, he will no longer be part of the VGMAs.
