One time British High commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin has condemned the actions of two of Ghana’s biggest dancehall artistes, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale over the chaos that occurred at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ceremony over the weekend. 

The ardent twitter user and outspoken diplomat made his sentiments known in a response to a tweet on social media. 

He blamed Stonebwoy more, particularly because he pulled out a gun in the heat of the moment in self defense. Everything began after Shatta Wale and his followers stormed the stage while Stonebwoy was receiving his award for the Reggae/ Dance hall artiste for the year.

Responding to a comment from a twitter user, John Benjamin said, “I’m not in favour of causing a fracas. I’m very much more not in favour of pulling a gun.” 

Shatta Wale’s intentions were not clear considering the fact that the two hardly see eye to eye. But according to Shatta Wale, he went on stage to make ‘peace’ with Stonebwoy.

Stonebwoy has since rendered an apology for pulling out a gun in the heat of events.

The two were invited by the police and spent the night in detention yesterday.
