Last night will go down in the history of Ghanaian music as one of shame, but also one with many lessons to learn. From security at events to inciting violence, and the role of the media in fuelling the beef between the two factions, we need to reflect on a lot.

Here is a pictorial account on how the fracas between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale, after the former won the Ghana Music Award for Reggae/Dancehall Artist of the Year, was defused on stage.

Meanwhile headline sponsors, Vodafone has issued the following press statement on events that took place on Saturday:

We wish to state as follows:

The scuffle on stage during the VGMA is regrettable. However, we acknowledge that a large number of players in the industry do not subscribe to such conduct.

Vodafone, as a responsible organization, is against all acts of violence and such conduct, no matter the circumstances.

We will support any review process of the incident to ensure that our commitment to recognize and celebrate achievement and success in the music industry is not compromised.

For now, our passion for music and for the industry remains solid. We look forward to an exciting future for the industry.
