Banning Stonebwoy and Shatta wale from VGMA will be unjust – Joe Mettle!!!!!
Award winning Gospel Act Joe Mettle has stated excluding former industry arch rivals, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) will be unjust.
According to the singer, he believes both artistes have worked hard in the year under review to be banned from the biggest music awards event on the land.
In an interview on TV3’s New Day with Johnnie Hughes, Joe Mettle who won VGMA artiste of the year in 2017, explained that the ban has served its purpose as both artistes have ironed out their differences
” I think both artistes have been able to come together to fix their differences and I’m sure whatever was between them is fine now. I think when they were banned, the organizers weren’t sure the artistes could fix this and I think the ban helped in pushing them into the direction they’ve been able to get to.” He said.
He further said “So personally, I don’t think even if the ban if lifted it’ll be a bad decision. Because they’ve work in the year under review, both artistes have worked really hard so excluding them from the scheme will be unfair.”
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were banned indefinitely from the VGMA after a brawl involving their camps on stage at the 20th ediwhich was held at the Grand Arena Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre on May 18, 2019.
The two were also arrested and put before court on a charge of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, with an additional charge of displaying a weapon in a public place without permission for Stonebwoy.
