Reggae Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale has sounded a caution to his arch rival Stonebwoy, to carry out his threats on him if they meet or see him square his statement, ABC News Ghana can report.
This recent comment by Shatta Wale is on the back of chaos at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards when Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage as Shatta Wale and some followers tried mounting the stage during an award presentation to Stonebwoy.
The chaos marred the otherwise splendid ceremony which celebrated 20 years of Ghanaian music by the Events powerhouse, Charter House. It forced organizers to skip the presentation of two more other awards including the ‘Artist of the Year’ award.
But Shatta Wale has been quick to justify his decision to mount the stage even when he was not the recipient of the Reggae/Dancehall Artist of the year. He says his motive was to solidarise with his compatriot, Stonebwoy, and to send a message to music lovers that they, musicians, are one family.
In a Facebook post by Shatta Wale, the ‘Gringo’ singer warned that he would retaliate in equal measure if Stonebwoy continued to draw weapons anytime he(Stonebwoy) was provoked.
“Somebody should tell that bwoy, I have been to gun ranges, I got people who wanna share their last blood for me and when we pull guns, we fucken shoot…he should never try that on me cause I didn’t see it..charter house also gave him the chance to come and say he will chew on me like gari if he meets me one on one. If I meet him and he doesn’t do all what he said cause he’s been given a gun by Ghana police to feel pompous, I WILL DO WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO SQUARE HIS STATEMENT…then GUNZ will talk instead of people” he warned.
The artiste revealed It was his third time hearing about and witnessing first hand Stonebwoy draw weapons in an attempt to cause harm. He says it’s high time the Police took a critical look at the ‘trigger happy life’ of the celebrated Reggae/Dancehall artist.
‘If the police don’t warn that boy about hos trigger happy life erh, we all go show gun for town cause he can’t pull a gun whiles I don’t. This is the third time I have heard this and seen it with my naked eyes” he revealed.
“My crew had good intention moving up there for us to prove that unity to make this 20 years celebration a wonderful one but hey, as usual, shatta wale dier ibe dis, ibe dat so what happened just happen and the sensible ones saw how insecure music has made some people just to pull out guns.” He stated in the post sighted by ABC News Ghana .
