The feud between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale led to a disruption of the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. Organisers decided not to announce the Artiste of the Year and Song of the Year winners because it involved the two artistes. Now, Stonebwoy has expressed conviction he would have won because he spent GHC50,000 on votes.To what extent can money determine who wins what? Is Stonebwoy’s statement injurious to his brand and the VGMAs?
Few days ago, Sista Afia rendered an apology to Freda Rhymz on live TV for any harm she may have caused ‘saa chick no’ when they battled for supremacy through music. Freda will however not be patronized by the apology as she refused to do same.

Was there a need for an apology? Has the apology doused the beef flame? If yes, is there a reason to rekindle the beef? How beneficial is lyrical war? How can an artiste capitalize on the beef to remain relevant?
