Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Livingstone Euse Satekla, better known as Stonebwoy has called on the state pleading with them to drop its suit against Shatta Wale and himself.
Dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have had bad blood ever since Shatta Wale started picking on Stonebwoy and mocking his injured leg.
Their feud ended up bringing a whole VGMA to a halt after a gun was brandished by Stonebwoy when Shatta Wale and his entourage charged on Stonebwoy, who was on stage receiving the dancehall artiste of the year award during the event.
Despite the fact that the show continued later, their actions caused fear and panic causing several people to run home.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were later arrested by the police over the brawl.
Speaking on the incident on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hotz with Andy Dosty, Stonebwoy stated that Shatta Wale and himself have demonstrated that they have risen above the fracas that occurred at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards urging that the government should look at the issue again and let the case go.
“We have lived by example. We are still hoping that the government would issue a Nolle prosequi by the Attorney-General because we have led by example to be honest.”
He pleaded with the government to drop the case “so we can continue our work…unifying the masses,” and they do not want such a dent on their names.
Asked if he was disappointed that the police ‘arrested’ him, Stonebwoy responded that, “I wasn’t disappointed,” that he was invited by the police because the law had to take its course.
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, while Stonebwoy is facing another charge of displaying a weapon in public place without permission.
The Adjabeng Magistrate Court presided over by Mr Isaac Addo, has fixed October 9, 2019, to commence the trial in the case.
