The music industry hates me; they wish me ill – Shatta Wale

Reggae/Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has said although Ghana loves him, the music industry and its players hate him and wish he never played any hit songs again.

His comments come following a clash between him and his archrival Stonebwoy at the just-ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards held at the Accra International Conference Centre on Saturday, 18 May 2019.

“Ghana loves me but the music industry and its players hate me so much that they wish I never played any hit song again but [the] laws of Ghana will work ...,” Shatta Wale tweeted after the show.


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

Shatta Wale and his fans approached the podium to, ostensibly congratulate Stonebwoy, but events turned chaotic resulting in a lot of pushing and shoving – a situation that prompted Stonebwoy to pull out his pistol.

The security officers at the event pepper-sprayed the stage in an attempt to prevent a full-blown fight.

The “Kpok3k3” hitmaker later apologised for his actions.

“I’m sorry for the incident that happened earlier. I only had to react out of natural instincts because we all know how premeditative some people can be. We’ve seen on social media the threats and everything, so, we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened as you guys saw. I come in peace and I go in peace and I apologise to the whole of Ghana…” Stonebwoy said on stage when he picked his second award of the night after the show had resumed following the fracas.

Meanwhile, the two award-winning artistes were on Sunday afternoon invited by the Accra Regional Police Command and detained.

According to ClassFMonline.com sources, the two will be arraigned on Tuesday, 21 May 2019.
