The fight was so intense that Stonebwoy's manager, Blakk Cedi, was seen throwing punches and pushing members of Shatta Wale's crew who were trying make their way to the stage when the Kpoo Keke singer was receiving his award for Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.

According to him, the artistes are to blame for the incident and must take responsibility for their actions since they both exercised poor judgement leading to the fracas.

The Ghanaian Times, for its part, said 20th VGMA almost ended in tragedy when Stonebwoy, pointed a gun at his rival Shatta Wale, to defend his award.

Just as he approached, blows started flying between Stonebwoy's entourage and Shatta Wale's team with security personnel rushing in to prevent the brawl from escalating.

It all started when Stonebwoy was announced the victor of the 2019 Reggae/dancehall Artiste of the Year.

Some have suggested that Shatta Wale and his team's walk up to the stage was to congratulate Stonebwoy for the award but Stonebwoy and his team believe that Shatta Wale was up to harm them.

Afraid of what could happen, Stonebwoy quickly pulled out a gun.

While stepping on stage to receive the award, he apologized for the incident. The incident might have turned into a bloody one if not for the intervention of security operatives at the event. "We've seen on social media the treats and everything so we couldn't come in unprepared because anything could have happened like you guys saw", he said.

After taking statements from the invited parties, the police detained Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
