Pandemonium broke out shortly after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’ when Shatta Wale and his team were seen going towards the stage, their intentions unclear.

This arbitrament also states that, the "Shugah" hitmaker, Stonebwoy, and the "Kpu Kpa" hitmaker, Shatta Wale will not participate in Vodafone Ghana Music Awards nomination, selections, and performances.
