'I won AOY in 2019, Charter house should be brave and announce' - Stonebwoy

The newly crowned TGMA 'Artist of the Year' Stonebwoy is of the belief that he won the coveted Artist of the Year award in 2019 at the VGMAs even though he was disqualified by Charterhouse and the VGMA board for pulling a gun on stage.

In his acceptance speech at the just-ended 25th Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA), the Dancehall/Reggae musician pleaded with Charterhouse to announce the winner of the 2019 Artist of the Year category with his belief that he was the winner.

He also won other awards from the Record of the Year, Album/EP of the Year, Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year, and Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year categories.

Stonebwoy and his then-archrival, Shatta Wale were involved in a near physical altercation while the former was on stage with his team to receive his award for Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year at the 20th VGMAs when Shatta Wale and his boys were spotted angrily advancing towards the stage.

The unfortunate incident which marred the 20th celebrations of the award was condemned by the general public and the two were subsequently picked up by the police after the awards ceremony.

At the end of the evening, the VGMA board unanimously decided not to award the overall AOTY to any of the nominated artistes and subsequently banned Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy for a number of years.
