Samuel Atuobi Baah known in showbiz as Sammy Flex and the head of communication for Nana Appiah Mensah’s Zylofon media has stated that their firm Zylofon media who have flopped if they tried organizing the 2018 edition of the Ghana Movie Awards.
Last year it was reported that Nana Appiah Mensah’s Zylofon media had acquired the Ghana Movie Awards franchise from its CEO Fred Nuamah and are supposed to organize the event for the next ten years.
It came as a shock when Fred Nuamah came out again to announce that he was organizing the awards again when we all know he had sold it to Zylofon Media. After his announcement, some representatives from Zylofon media came out and disassociated the entertainment company from the awards.
Fast Forward, Sammy Flex has come out to explain why they had to pull themselves away from the awards last year.
Speaking on his entertainment review show dubbed ‘Showbiz Agenda’ on Zylofon FM during the Wednesday, January 9, 2018 edition, he revealed that they(Zylofon) felt that they were not fully prepared to organize an awards event that was befitting of their status as Zylofon Media and as such, the decision they took.
He also added that even though they at Zylofon Media felt it would have been a big failure if they had organized the awards last year, Fred Nuamah, the CEO of the awards scheme thought otherwise.
He ended by stating that because they couldn’t reach an agreement with Fred on the need to hold on with the awards for the last, they had to release a statement to disassociate themselves from the awards which took place on December 30, 2018, and give Fred Nuamah the go-ahead to organize it because he felt he was ready.
Before we forget, we are yet to get the list of winners for the 2018 Ghana Movie Awards since the organizers are yet to officially release the list.
