Private Legal Practitioner, Maurice Ampaw has disclosed that musicians Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale may face up to 3 years in jail if they are found guilty.

He explained that they have been charged for misdemeanor which in law may warrant up to a 3 year jail term.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that both artistes have misconducted themselves and it is only appropriate for the law to take its course.

There was near-pandemonium at this year's music awards after Stonebwoy had just been declared winner of the 2019 Reggae and Dancehall Artiste of the Year, and was on stage to receive his award. His presentation was rudely interrupted by Shatta Wale and his multitude of fans who decided to mount the stage with him in what some perceived to be in a confrontational manner leading to the scuffle.

But for the intervention of the security at the auditorium who managed to quell the tension and bring the situation under control, the scuffle could have turned bloody.

The VGMA Board's decision announced this morning at a press conference, also indicated that "the two top honours of the night, i.e Most Popular Song of the Year and Artiste of the Year, have for the 20th Edition of the VGMAs been annulled."

Additionally, the board also "banned indefinetely from participating in the nominations, selections and performances at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheme".'

Shatta Wale is facing a charge of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace while Stonebwoy has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace and display of a firearm in public without permission.

The two were put before a court in Accra on Wednesday. The court presided over by Magistrate Isaac Addo granted the two bail at a cost of GHC50,000 with one surety each.
