First ever Shatta wale-Stonebwoy concert after peace conference*The 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (2019) made the already existing fame of the Reggae Dancehall genre in Ghana to shoot up considerably as it created one of the biggest and longest lasting musical debates over who is the best and who is right.
The events of the night saw Stonebwoy pulling a gun, in an ‘act of self-defense’ when his known rival in the industry, Shatta Wale climbed onto his stage to ‘congratulate’ him for winning an award both desired; the Reggae Dancehall artist of the year.
The most popular brawl in the Ghanaian entertainment industry between the two took a sudden turn when they announced a peace conference to settle their scores and accept themselves as the ‘brothers’ they are.
One will ask, after the peace conference what next? But just as new things crop up every day, Nungua hosted the two in a grand way on the same stage in the just ended ‘July in Nungua’ Fair.
As one of the biggest ever street fair and music concert, the ‘July in Nungua’ Fair headlined the bigwigs of Dancehall music in Ghana, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
The fair, did not only host the two former dancehall rivals but also hosted two very young rappers who recently took over social media to ‘beef’ each other over who has the ‘baddest’ rap lines.
The two are Medikal and Strongman.
Their ‘beef’ started when the Reigning VGMA Rapper of the Year, Medikal released ‘To Whom It May Concern’, and in the song, he threw some shots and jabs at his fellow rappers with Strongman inclusive.
Strongman took it hard and replied massively with ‘Don’t Try’ which put social media in a frenzy as scores of social media users appreciated and admired the young artist’s poetic control of his language.
These two, also performed on one stage in the just ended July in Nungua. Other artists who participated in the event include Gasmilla, Patapaa, Article Wan, Nii Funny and Wisa.
The event which happened on Sunday, July 14th was sponsored by Kpoo keke and powered by Charter House and Florex.
The MC for the event was Mensah Jr and the Disc Joker was DJ Aroma.
