Jesus Take The Wheel! Stonebwoy pulls gun on stage leaving many to wonder how the gun got pass security.

‘What happened to ‘Music Is Love’ Music Is Life’?

To say what happened tonight at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2019 is scary is understatement. The whole situation could have gone horribly wrong.

There could have been lots of casualties due to stampede and God know what. Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy putting peoples lives at risk wasn’t cool.

The question is; What would make Stonebwoy pull out a gun in public and on stage for that matter? It just doesn’t make sense to endanger other peoples lives.

“Let us forgive each other–only then can we live in peace.” ~Leo Tolstoy

 

‘We were told Stonebwoy was scared because Shatta Wale and his fans ‘stormed them’ on the stage.  We hope both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy will put whatever is going on to rest. sooner than later.

We love them both, however, we can’t pretend what happened tonight is acceptable on any level and pray it will not happen again.
