Ghanaian reggae star brandishes a GUN as his bitter rival storms the stage during award ceremony sparking a mass brawl
A music awards night in Ghana erupted in a mass brawl that saw a handgun drawn as the entourages of two rival dancehall acts clashed on stage.
Livingstone Etse Satekla, who goes by the stage name Stonebwoy, had collected the award for best dancehall act at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards on Sunday night ahead of bitter rival Shatta Wale, whose real name Charles Nii Armah Mensah.
But, apparently unhappy with the result, Shatta Wale and his crew burst on to the stage, sparking a mass brawl that brought the award ceremony to a standstill.
At one point Stonebwoy was pictured standing to one side of the stage with a pistol clearly visible in his hand.
However, security guards intervened and the situation was diffused without anybody being injured. After a 30 minute delay, the award ceremony resumed.
Despite initial reports that Stonebwoy had been arrested, he remained in the venue for the rest of the evening and was pictured alongside police afterwards.
During a later acceptance speech for best collaboration, he apologised for the fight.
