Mugeez, one member of the Tema-based music duo, R2bees has waded into the Shatta Wale-Stonebwoy VGMA fracas and according to the Ghanaian Afrobeat and Highlife artiste, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy’s beef could have been dealt with long ago; but we waited till guns were pulled out before finally making moves. Dancehall artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy got entangled in a gun showing incidence at the just-ended VGMA’s after the former mounted stage while Stonebwoy was about to give his acceptance speech upon winning Reggae/Dancehall artiste of the year. Both artistes were detained by the Ghana Police and released on bail the day after whiles investigations continue. Mugeez who hardly speaks on matters concerning musical beefs added that the two artistes should love the culture and keep guns out of the game.
“This Cud Have Bn Tamed LongTime Ago! We Enjoy FunPart Of It Until We Made Dem Felt They Cud PullOutGunz! Ma brothers ain’t really done nothing. Gunz bn poppin around this drama n we sat back n watched! Love da culture n keep da gunz out ! Meditate On It!” – He said.
