Shatta Wale who took to Facebook to react to his fight with Stonebwoy at the VGMA held last night stated that one should play with a lion. Recall that after Stonebwoy was announced as the winner of Reggae-Dancehall artist of the year for the 5th consecutive time, Shatta Wale attacked him on stage with his SM militants. Recall that our video showed that Stonebwoy also pulled a gun on stage.

However addressing himself as a Lion after his VGMA fight with StoneBwoy, Shatta Wale who stated that no one should play with him, wrote;  “Don’t play with a lion like that …He dislikes to smell blood !!!”

This is coming after an Insider revealed that Charter House had promised to award Shatta Wale as the Artiste of the year. In a leaked Whatsapp Chat between a worker with Charter House only identified as Nana K and a social media user, it was learnt that the music outfit had agreed to award Shatta Wale with the ultimate award which is the “Artiste of the Year”.

This agreement was reportedly reached after Shatta Wale paid a courtesy call on the CEO of Charter House Mrs. Theresa Ayoade few months ago.  While it was reported that Shatta Wale went to apologize officially to the CEO, Nana K claimed that the meeting was for an agreement to be reached between both parties. It was alleged that Shatta Wale was told to help promote this year’s award on social media, in exchange for “Artiste of the year”

Stonebwoy has explained why he pulled a gun after he got attacked by Shatta Wale on stage at the VGMA 2019, held last night. According to Stonebwoy, he brought the gun he pulled on Shatta Wale who attacked on stage because of threats he had received prior to the event. He further revealed that people had been sending threats of assault and he wanted to just protect himself.

The Ghanaian Dancehall artiste further apologized for the fight that broke up between Shatta Wale fans and his fans, and assured that all the problem has been settled. Just after Stonebwoy was announced as the winner of the Reggae Dancehall Artist of the year at the VGMA 2019, Shatta Wale attacked him after he mounted the stage to pick his award.

Singer Yemi Alade gave the condition on which could collaborate with her rival, Tiwa Savage to make a song.

While chatting with Sunday Scoop, she said: “If it is the will of God (collaborating with Tiwa Savage). We, female artistes, are all doing great things and putting music out there. Being the biggest female artiste or not, I am very happy where I am and I’m happy for other females in the industry.”

On the alleged beef between her and Tiwa Savage, he said the question was irrelevant, saying, “We are here for the music; so, let’s keep our focus on the music.”

There is confusion currently the VGMA 2019 which has interrupted the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for close to one hour now.

From what we have gathered so far, it all started when Stonebwoy who had been declared the winner of the Reggae Dancehall of the Artist went to the stage for his award.

Shatta Wale followed Stonebwoy to the stage. It unclear what reasons Shatta Wale followed Stonebwoy to stage but fans of Stonebwoy resisted.

It became a huge confrontation that Stonebwoy angrily pulled a gun on stage but was calmed down by the fans.

Some people believe Shatta Wale went there with anger for reasons known to him.

Zlatan Ibile’s management who gave an update about their artiste, have disclosed that the EFCC have returned his car and phone shortly after he was released on bail following his arrest alongside 4 others including Naira Marley. Recall that while Zlatan temporarily regained his freedom, Naira Marley was charged to court on 11 counts bordering on fraud and he risks going to jail for 7 years if found guilty. However a member of Zlatan Ibile’s management team who spoke to Sunday Scoop on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the EFCC have returned his car and phone and we should expect more music from him.

“We all know that he was detained for investigations and he has been set free. When he was freshly released, his phone and car were not returned to him. However, he has now collected all his possessions in the custody of the EFCC. Three people were released out of the four persons arrested; Marley has been charged to court. Zlatan is okay now and people should expect more music from him” he said.

The source further backed claims of Davido not being involved in the release of the rapper. “Davido was not involved in Zlatan’s release. As we speak, he is not in the country – he is in the United States of America” he said.

Over 700, 000 fans of the popular television show, ‘Game of Thrones’ have called for a remake of what they termed “a disappointing last season.”

The fans are signing a change.org petition titled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers.”

The petition had garnered 736, 080 signatures at the time of this report on Friday, and was gaining more supporters by the second.

The petition read, “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully
incompetent writers when they have no source material to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense.”

HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’, which was adapted from George R.R. Martin’s ‘A song of fire and ice’, started outpacing the series of novels in season six.

After the show was on hiatus for all of 2018, the premiere of season eight in April was the most-watched one-day event in HBO’s more than four-decade history.

A lot of fans have described the season as
underwhelming and a poor finale to a great show. Among the numerous issues, fans complained about the poorly lit ‘Battle of Winterfell’ in episode three.

They also complained about the inconsistent storylines, poor character arcs and were outraged when the otherwise carefully shot series accidentally left a paper coffee cup in episode four.

HBO acknowledged that the presence of the disposable cup in the scene was a mistake, and later edited it out of the episode.

In the penultimate episode of the series, which aired May 12, Daenerys executed Lord Varys before wiping out King’s Landing and most of its population, even after the bells of surrender sounded.

Many thought the massacre was completely out-of-character for Daenerys — or at the very least needed more of a build-up.

‘Game of Thrones’ has had an average of 43 million viewers per episode which is expected to rise as the final episode airs on Sunday.
