Blame Charterhouse for VGMA brawl – Deputy Defence Minister

By on
The deputy Defence Minister, Major Derrick Oduro has blamed the clashes between supporters of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards [VGMA] on the failure of the organizers to provide maximum security at the venue.

“We have to blame Charterhouse for all these. They did not provide maximum security at such a big event,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

The 20th edition of the VGMAs nearly turned bloody when fans of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale engaged in near-fisticuffs over an award.

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

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