Controversial dancehall musician Shatta Wale has announced his exit from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards organised by event organiser Charterhouse.
“Upon sober reflections of events in recent times and having made broader consultations, I wish to announce that I will not be part of the Ghana Music Awards scheme going forward. God bless!,” he wrote on his social media handles Thursday.
The announcement came minutes before the organiser handed an indefinite ban on the artiste over his misconduct at the latest edition of the show.
Charterhouse has banned both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy from the awards scheme indefinitely.
The two popular artistes have also been stripped from their awards and are also to return the plaque they won last Saturday.
The decision was announced by Charterhouse Thursday in Accra.
Stonebwoy was seen on national TV pulling a gun on stage during the chaos and had to be restrained by his associates. The stage fracas led to a long hold up of the prestigious event as security struggled to restore order between the two camps.
The chaos broke out at the music fiesta after Shatta Wale stormed the stage while Stonebwoy was receiving his award for emerging the Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the year for the fifth consecutive time.
