Instead of us discussing who won what at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, here we are talking about two grown men who decided to have a field day…

Last Saturday, the VGMA became chaotic after a brawl between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale paused the broadcast of the show for about 30 minutes.

Stonebwoy had pulled out a gun after Shatta Wale approached the stage ostensibly to congratulate Stonebwoy for winning the Reggae Dancehall Artiste of the year.

Yesterday, both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were detained by Ghana Police for the incident which occurred at the VGMA.

However, it seems Stonebwoy might be in much bigger trouble.

His offence — the part about the gun.

He might be a licensed gun owner, however, there are laws governing pulling out guns in public places, especially in an auditorium where Ministers of state, ambassadors and high commissioners were present.

According to the Arms and Ammunition Act – 1972 (NRCD 9), Section 7 (Control of Public Display of Arms or Ammunition, Etc.) No person shall, except in accordance with the terms of a permit granted under this Decree or with the written consent of the Inspector-General of Police, publicly display any arms or ammunition (including explosives) or discharge any firearm or other weapon in any public place.

Now, even that applies to the performance of traditional ceremonies.

This could be the act that gives Stonebwoy a lot of legal trouble.
