How BBC reported the arrest of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale

Two rival dancehall musicians have been questioned by police in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, following a brawl during the country's music awards.

At a ceremony on Saturday night, which was witnessed by a large television audience, Stonebwoy had just been announced as the winner of the reggae and dancehall artist of the year.

Rival musician Shatta Wale and his fans stormed the stage, starting a fight.

People were shocked to see Stonebwoy holding a gun to defend himself.

Such a scene is extremely rare in Ghana.

Police are also reported to have arrested one person for using pepper spray during the brawl.

In a statement, Stonebwoy said: “I would like to extend my sincerest apologies and deepest regrets for the part my conduct played at what should have been the biggest celebration of Ghanaian music last night.”
