It was an exciting scene yesterday at the Marriot Hotel, when Shatta Wale and his former arch rival, Stonebwoy all clamored for peace yesterday. During the Unity Press conference, Shatta Wale after having received the microphone from Stonebwoy reiterated that they all want peace, and was quick to add that their trending peace pictures on social media was not Photoshop or edited.
It would be recollected that for some time there has been a fracas between the two during the Ghana Music Awards. This was a result of a purported attempt by Shatta Wale to surprise Stonebwoy in a nice congratulatory stunt, which led to the latter pulling a trigger on stage. It is against this background that the two upon further discussions and interventions have organized the Unity Press conference. At the event, Shatta Wale said that both he and Stonebwoy only want and are fighting for one thing, peace especially as people were doubting the peace pictures circulating on social media.
“I just wanna apologize to all of you like he said, to my Bhim Nation fans, to my SM fans, to my sweet people and good friends I have among the journalists, you know it always happens and like he says, Peace is all we want. We all want our business flourish and leave a good life. It is an example we setting for the next generation to come, so you people must just understand this. I know most of you people saw our picture circulating on social media and you were saying this is photo shop. I beg you, it was no photo shop, I hope you people are seeing the video live”.
Interestingly, to make the press briefing lively, Stonebwoy termed their photos as “Photo market” and not photoshop and Shatta Wale also pulled a surprise “Jesus kiss” on the cheek as he kissed Stonebwoy on his cheek.
The duo has been stripped off all their titles for this year’s Ghana Music Awards, a directive Charterhouse believes it is a penal measure to discourage other future similar occurrences.
