I Won’t Return The 2019 VGMA Plaques I Won : Stonebwoy Tells Charterhouse

Published

on

Stonebwoy

Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla has stated that contrary to Charterhouse’s request that he and Shatta Wale return the plaques they won at this year’s VGMA’s, he will never return the plaques.

Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy after their unpopular VGMA brawl were indefinitely suspended from partaking in the subsequent VGMA’s and were asked to return the plaques they won on the night.

The artiste/popular of the year which we were told by Sefa Kayi belonged to Shatta and Stonebwoy was as also not announced because of the fracas.

In an interview with Andy Dosty on Accra-based Hitz FM today, 20th September 2019, Stonebwoy reacted Charterhouse’s statement, indicating that asking him to return a plaque he won with his fan’s vote is a sign of disrespect for him.

According to Stonebwoy, he did not steal the awards, so why must he return the plaque adding that he deserved the awards because of his hard work.

Stonebwoy described the actions of Charterhouse as haste and judgemental.

Speaking on the unfortunate incidence, he apologised and noted that people could have died because of the pandemonium that occurred on that day so for him and his fans to lose their lives for nothing is alarming.

“What happened at the VGMA’s was a turning point for me and the music industry”, he added.

Stonebwoy today, 20th September in an interview with Andy Dosty on Accra-based Hitz FM stated that immediately after the unpopular incidence, he sent an apology letter to the organizers, Charterhouse.

Stonebwoy in his narration noted that he sent a first letter which wasn’t replied. He followed it up with subsequent letters and they all haven’t been replied to date.

According to him, he isn’t happy about Charterhouse and Vodafone’s snub; and feels disrespected by that act.

“I was the first one to apologize to Charterhouse. I sent apology letters, and I did not even receive replies; which I also deem disrespectful. I sent apologies to VodafoneGhana. No reply”.

Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy are currently standing trial for causing a commotion during the 20th VGMA’s.

Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, while Stonebwoy is facing another charge of displaying a weapon in public place without permission.

The two have since been banned indefinitely from participating in future VGMA events.
