The 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) nearly turned bloody and was marred in the early hours of Sunday, 19 May 2019 when fans of dancehall artiste Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale engaged in near fisticuffs over an award.

The confusion happened when Stonebwoy was announced as the Reggae Dancehall Artiste of the Year.

Reports say an unhappy Shatta Wale and his fans got off their seat and made their way to the podium but were stopped by stonebwoy and his fans which led to a brawl.

Stonebwoy reportedly pulled a gun on stage while the security present sprayed pepper in the auditorium in an attempt to prevent a full-blown fight.

Patrons had to run out of the auditorium as they could not breath due to the pepper.

The show continued after some break.
