The ‘Kpoo K3k3’ hitmaker was also charged with the threatening of public peace concerning the chaos that occurred at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

However, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were both in court today and were granted bail to the tune of GH50,000 each with one surety.

The lawyers for the two dancehall artists pleaded with the court to grant their clients a self-recognisance bail but it was denied.

The case presided by Mr Isaac Addo granted them bail with sureties and the hearing was adjourned to 20th June 2019.

The two artists are in court over their scuffle at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

The Bhim president was crowned the Reggae Dancehall Artist of the year and as he was receiving his award, Shatta Wale mounted the stage with his crew.

This caused chaos on stage after Stonebwoy pulled out a gun and halted the show for over 30 minutes.

Also, Shatta Wale released a song dubbed ‘He saved me from death’ after he was detained overnight at the Tesano Police station.
