Many celebrities who were at the 20th edition of the Ghana Music Awards had to leave the venue after a brawl broke out between the camps of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
It all started when Shatta Wale and his team attempted to go on stage after Stonebwoy was announced ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year.’
Pandemonium broke out, leading to exchange of blows between the two camps.
Stonebwoy then pulled a gun on stage.
Although he has apologised, many have expressed disappointment in the conduct of the two artistes.
Some celebrities took to social media to share either their personal experiences or thoughts about the fracas.
For Actress Lydia Forson, seeing the gun pulled in the midst of a crowd was as disgusting as it was traumatising.
She wrote on her Twitter page “You people weren’t there so you don’t get how traumatising this experience was. Do you know how many tragedies have happened because of stampedes?”
