Fight on stage

The fight, which occurred on the stage broke out after Stonebwoy went to collect an award at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ceremony in Accra.

Footage of the brawl shows Stonebwoy with a gun, but police made no reference to it in their statement.

"The police in no uncertain terms condemn the disturbance and assure the public and fans that it will handle the case with the needed attention it deserves," the police statement read.

“In order to draw your weapon, you have to be in fear for your life. You can't just "feel threatened" because someone is "bigger than you" or "louder than you" or "generally intimidating." Even if they are harassing you, you still can't draw your gun,” Shatta Wale wrote on twitter.

Stonebwoy later apologised for his involvement in the brawl.
