VGMA brawl: Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale granted 50K Court Bail

A magistrate in Accra presided over by Magistrate Isaac Addo has granted Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale bail at a cost of GHc 50,000 with one surety each.

Both stars are charged with issuing threats and using abusive words with the intent to disturb public peace, with Stonebwoy facing count of displaying an Australian gun INFK 158 with butt number AA792002017.

The two pleaded not guilty to charges they are facing over their involvement in the disturbances that marred the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Lawyers Jerry Avenyor and Selali Wonya represented Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy respectively. The case has been adjourned to June 20, 2019. The two were cautioned to be of good behaviour while the case is ongoing.

Stonebwoy born Livingstone Este Satekla and Charles Nii Armah aka Shatta Wale were arrested Sunday following the scuffle that erupted on stage between their camps after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the year.

Just when Stonebwoy, who was picking up the award for the fifth time, was about to deliver his acceptance speech for the award, Shatta Wale started walking towards him on stage.

As he approached the stage, blows started flying between Stonebwoy’s entourage and Shatta Wale’s team. Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage during the scuffle as some of his team members try to shield the gun.

Police and security personnel rushed to the stage to prevent the brawl from escalating. The fight disrupted the Awards for almost 30 minutes.

One other person identified by the police as Nii Amoo, who was seen discharging pepper spray in the auditorium, has also been arrested and is assisting the police with investigations, a police statement said last Monday.
