Top Ghanaian Dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been nominated in the 2021 MTV African Music Awards in the same category; Best Artiste in African Reggae/Dancehall.

The two dancehall acts are one of most popular competitors in the Ghanaian music industry. Over the past years, Shatta and Stone – as they are affectionately called – have faced each other in most awards categories battling for the same plaque.

They both got nominated in Vodafone Ghana Music Awards(VGMAs) from 2015 to 2019 till they got banned for causing violence on stage. Stonebwoy drew a gun on stage after he won the VGMAs Reggae/Dance Artiste of the Year (2019) for the fifth (5th) time after Shatta Wale and his team tried to attack him.
