It will be very illogical for him to deliberately act in a manner to ruin and mar the same event he has spent a lot of resources to promote and urged his fans to attend. Shatta Wale meant no harm and considers this incident as unfortunate.”

Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were arrested by the police over a brawl that erupted between their camps at the Awards on the morning of Sunday.
