He added: “The security targeted them (despite no one fitting the description), were physically aggressive when handling them and there’s been no effort from the festival to actually deal and address the problem.”

The festival confirmed to Radio 1 Newsbeat that his team was not escorted off the premises and Stormzy was not on-site at the time of the incident.

In a statement on its website, the festival said they were alerted to a possible security threat that an individual might have been carrying a weapon.

Organizers explain that: “A small number of attendees, including Stormzy’s manager, was escorted to the nearest exit, searched and no weapon was found.”

The festival apologized to Stormzy and his team and added: “We are doing everything we can to understand the full situation and are treating this with the utmost seriousness to ensure this does not happen again.”

A blessing in disguise many will call it, and yes it’s indeed what it is.

Born Vincenet Kwaku Osei, Strongman Burner engaged in a fierce lyrical battle that saw his numbers, views, and followers shoot than ever before.

From all indications, one can tell Strongman is on his way to become a fierce competition for other rappers and other industry players as he has been the latest addition to this years MMC which is set to come off at the AICC on 26th June 2019.

Initially booked were Sarkodie and Wendy Shay but barely a week to the event, organizers has announced that the former SarkCess Music signee will perform alongside his former boss, Sarkodie, and fast-rising rapper Okete.

Strongman and Medikal for the past three days have made Ghana the most interesting country to live in taking into consideration the back-to-back diss songs they released against each other.

Medikal set the internet on fire for saying he saved the dying rap music in Ghana which started the whole lyrical fracas. After he got criticized by pundits and artists especially Strongman for his presumably reckless comment, he released ‘To Whom it May Concern’ on Friday.

Strongman replied in ‘Don’t Try’ after which Medikal returned with the ‘Last Burial.’ It did not end there, as Strongman stormed back with ‘Immortal’ on Sunday morning- June 23 to add the final nail to Medikal’s coffin.
