One of the significant aftermaths of the scuffle at the 20th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, between the then archrivals, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy was the ban of the two. The indefinite ban, which constricts the two dancehall acts from participating in the awards scheme has still not been lifted.
However, Stonebwoy, one of the involving parties of the ban had something to say, a year after the ban. He disclosed that lifting the ban would be of greater benefit to the awards scheme than to them, the banned artistes.

The ‘tuffseed’ hitmaker’s reason for making such assertions was that regardless of the ban, he and Shatta Wale are still making great music. So the ban does not in any way inhibit the development of their careers.
Moreover, lifting the ban would be even more advantageous to them because they would have two of Ghana’s biggest acts on their scheme.

Stonebwoy made this known in a chat with MzGee on 3FM’s Showbiz927. He stated:
” Lifting of the ban will serve as an advantage to the award scheme and not necessarily the artistes involved because they will have some of Ghana’s top artistes to get involved in the scheme,”.
Concerns began to be raised about the ban after the organizers of the awards commenced calling for submissions for this year’s edition. The organizers, Charterhouse did so, without addressing any issues regarding the ban. Thereby, implying that the ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy still stands.
