Shatta Wale threw a sub at his fellow Ghanaian act Stonebwoy when he failed to win at the Best New Act category at the 2015 edition of MTV MAMA. Stonebwoy lost the award to Patoranking.

Responding to the sub on a radio interview with Starr FM, Stonebwoy said: "I’m an artist who concentrates on my arts and I do my best to keep going to entertain the people who appreciate me and appreciate my work. ‘Shatta Wale has the right to his Twitter and to write whatever he wants to write. I haven’t seen that but if I had which you said is ‘some Ghanaian acts are more popular in America than Africa,’ it still makes sense.

"I don’t get hurt from that because I believe it takes effort to move from one place to the other. ‘I was so close at the MAMAs, I was there, I was nominated, and at the end of the day I know what happened. I don’t think it was directed at me but as Ghanaians we need to support our own and push it. ‘We shouldn't be looking at the mockery side because from experience I think we have to work hard to be known outside Ghana" he said.
