Shatta Wale has congratulated his arch-rival Stonebwoy on winning the Best International Act: Africa at the 2015 Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.
In spite of the years of serious conflicts and turf wars between them, Shatta Wale rose above the squabble on this occasion to celebrate what many have distinguished as a win for Ghana.
Stonebwoy, born Livingstone Etse Satekla, was adjudged winner of Ghana’s second BET award at a pre-recorded event Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
He beat Ghanaian counterpart Sarkodie and some of Africa’s biggest acts to win the award. The other nominees in that category were AKA (South Africa), Fally Ipupa (DR Congo), Sauti Sol (Kenya), The Soil (South Africa), Wizkid (Nigeria) and Yemi Alade (Nigeria).
Sarkodie jointly won Ghana’s first BET award in 2012 with Nigeria’s Wizkid.
In a short congratulatory message posted on twitter, Shatta Wale said “…. Big up stonebwoy for winning the best African at the BET AWARDS… One champagne for that.. lol”
