Organizer of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Charterhouse has stated at a press conference at Alisa Hotel in Accra that the 2019 Reggae Dancehall artiste of the year, Livingstone Etse Satekla with the stage name Stonebwoy and his arch industry rival Charles Nii Armah Mensah also known as Shatta Wale have been banned indefinitely from partaking in any of the Event house’s activities.
This is in relation to the happenings at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards which took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on May 18, 2019 monitored by Attractivemustapha.com where violence erupted after Stonebwoy was named Reggae Dancehall artiste of the year 2019.
Videos in circulation on social media indicate that Shatta Wale attempted getting on stage with an unknown intent and when he was prevented by Stonebwoy’s crew there was chaos on stage.
This prompted Stonebwoy to pull a gun which is suspected to have been given him by a member of his crew on stage.
The Ghana Police subsequently arrested the two Reggae icons and later granted them a bail with Ghc50,000.00 surety each.
In a latest development, Charterhouse has expressed its displeasure about the incident which marked 20th anniversary since the inception of the Ghana Music Awards and banned the self-acclaimed Dancehall King and the one of Ghana’s BET icons Stonebwoy till further notice.
