Celebrated fashionista and broadcaster, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD), is the latest person to add his voice to the discussions surrounding Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy since Saturday night’s VGMA.
The two dancehall artists have been all over the news since their confrontation at the VGMA Awards, which occurred when Stonebwoy was receiving one of his awards and Shatta Wale and his crew attempted to rush the stage.
Whilst the two artists have been arrested, granted bail and are now set to be arraigned before court, the court of public opinion continues to judge them for their actions.
The latest to do so is KKD, who has penned a poem addressing the situation. In an impressive literary effort, he draws an analogy to the Tupac-Biggie beef and calls for the two to learn lessons from that before it becomes too late.
An interesting bit of the poem is when he describes Stonebwoy as a ‘coward with a tool’ and Wale as a ‘Lion with Balls’.
You can read his entire poem below…

The 7th September 96 murder of Tupac Shakur The 9th March 97 killing of Biggie Smalls Must be lessons for the wise and the fool Plus cowards with tools & lions with balls The many paid promoters of culture: DJ, Writer, MC, Blogger & TV Presenter Fanned flames of incendiary matter To ignite the fight in many a squatter Revisit & replay the nonsense on air Disguised as interviews & see how clear This shameful day was slowly dawning In this poor, rich nation without a care What we expressly admire & condone How we throw & feed a dog a bone What we promote in every corner & zone Empowers gullible artistes & their own The build up was heard & seen by one & all But folk thought they were having a ball Insults of hustling hawkers & coarse politicians Became the stock-in-trade of some musicians Is it unfair to present it as it is? Well, few who in the wind have keenly pissed And sprayed the filth out of their bladders Into the soups of peers, fathers & mothers Instead of creating, composing & singing They hamper good folk striving to make a living But know that all hype will die after subsiding Only good music keeps on giving & rising It is never too late to try To milk the cow; but to cry Over what is spilt; don't collect it First acknowledge the truth, don't rearrange it To be onstage uninvited anywhere is uncivil Be they a fan, Kanye West, the fam or the devil It is wrong, disruptive, potential trouble & security's inaction here was just terrible Then packing a gun into a national show Not any waakye or apio party in some slum or ghetto And then carrying it onto a stage for whatever And drawing it for your weapon or toy to show In the presence of your elders, guests & reps of Government In the view of other nations watching our entertainment Security's incompetence, & inertia, here was evil If they did their work, it would be clean & simple And organizers & sponsors wouldn't have to deal with this drivel Mama Africa I cry, make us dignified and civil Learn from The Maestro Kojo Antwi Nana Ampadu, Daddy Lumba, Rocky Dawuni Nana Tuffour, Tagoe Sisters, Amakye Dede Stop the violence & the noise; mongyae dede #Ghana #music #arts #culture #tourism #hisroyalblackness
