Zylofon Music has completely disassociated itself from tribalistic comments passed by employee Willie Roi, head of A & R for Artist Development.
A Facebook post by Willi Roi on Livingstone Etse Satekla (Stonebwoy), which seems to prejudice an ethnic group has been much condemned by a section of the public.
In a statement, the company stated that they do not share those sentiments that he put forth and added that as a signee, Stonebwoy deserves to be treated with respect.
Full statement below…
The attention of Zylofon Music has been drawn to a Facebook post by Willi Roi, A&R for Artiste Development – on Livingstone Etse Satekla (Stonebwoy), which seems to prejudice an ethnic group.
Zylofon Music, a label under Zylofon Media Limited, disassociates itself from the flippant commentary from its Executive, noting that the unfortunate post does not in any way reflect the position of the label.
Stonebwoy is a Zylofon Music –recording artiste and must be accorded the same level of respect shown to all the other acts signed to the label.
Zylofon Music promotes unity, progression and peaceful co-existence in the elevation of Ghanaian music and its purveyors, and frowns on any form of discrimination, racial hatred, ethnic or inter-ethnic hatred.

DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS ZYLOFON MUSIC
It all comes at the back of the recent fracas between Stonebwoy and his record label Zylofon Music. Though matters have been resolved, it seems old man Willie Roi is still not at peace with the boss of Bhim Nation Stonebwoy.
