Ghanaian artists Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy clashed at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were arrested by the police on Sunday over a brawl that erupted between their crews at the 20th anniversary of the VGMA.

Rumour has it Stonebwoy pulled out a gun which he claimed was for self-defence. Shatta claimed he was going on stage to congratulate Stonebwoy but the video shows differently.

Quote of the day: With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Life is short, and if we enjoy every moment of every day, then we will be happy no matter what happens or what changes along the way. I don’t go by or change my attitude based on what people say.
