Information reaching us indicate that the VGMA Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the year, Stonebwoy has been arrested by the police.
His arrest by the police at the Accra Regional Command comes after he reportedly pulled out a gun while on the VGMA stage to accept his award.
This happened after his rival, Shatta Wale, also allegedly approached the stage ostensibly to congratulate him for his win.
The chaos between the two and their entourage caused an almost 30 minutes break in transmission of the VGMA on TV3.
Calm was restored and the show continued, however, organisers of the show withheld the announcement of two categories (Artiste of the Year and Vodafone Song of the year) due to the chaos.
Though much earlier reports that Stonebwoy had been arrested right after the show turned out to be false, Citi FM is just reporting that Stonebwoy has now been arrested.
Both him and Shatta Wale were invited to the station to answer questions and help police investigation into the issue.
We don’t know whether Shatta Wale is also under arrest at this time.
