Dancehall King, Shatta Wale born Charles Nii Armah Mensah has finally quit music for reasons is yet to uncover
The artiste made this announcement through his Facebook page after this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards where he had a brawl with bitterest rival Stonebwoy.
Pandemonium broke out shortly after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’.
Just when Stonebwoy, who was picking up the award for the fifth time, was about to deliver his acceptance speech for the award, Shatta Wale started walking to him on stage.
It’s unclear what Shatta Wale’s intentions were considering the fact that the two, over the years, have hardly seen eye to eye.
There are suggestions that Shatta Wale, who was clearly disappointed after his arch-rival was announced the winner of that category, was walking up to the stage to celebrate with Stonebwoy.
Just as he approached the stage, blows started flying between Stonebwoy’s entourage and Shatta Wale’s team.
Police and security personnel could be seen rushing to stage to prevent the brawl from escalating.
Stonebwoy pulled out a gun on stage during the scuffle as some of his team members try to shield the gun.
The fight disrupted the Awards for almost 30 minutes. Some guests, including actress Jackie Appiah, rushed out of the venue.
But according Shattale Wa, he has made enough money out of music and intends venturing into the Real Estate Business where he can make loads of money.
He mentioned that he will be remembered as the guy they tried to stop but could not succeed.
