So one Record Label that has received massive criticism in recent times is Zylofon Media owned by Nana Appiah Mensah and it is mainly because of the unprofessional manner they are handling the raging beef between Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Kumi Guitar and Zylofon Media itself.
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale, the major artists signed unto Zylofon Media has been beefing in the media for weeks now Without their record label taking any major step to quench the fire.
It got so worse that artist manager at Zylofon Media, Bulldog who led a team of macho men to seize Stonebwoy’s car was shot at with a gun.
People have been questioning exactly what Zylofon has achieved in their 2-year existence to be causing so much fracas in the media and the Head of Production at Zylofon Media, Enoch Atakorah has listed them on his social media handle.
According to Enoch Atakorah, Zylofon Media among other things paid 4 million dollars to Wizkid, Davido, MI, and others to get them to one of their artists, Becca’s 10-anniversary concert.
Enoch Atakorah, Head of Production At Zylofon Media posted:
“A year ago, Ghanaians were screaming everywhere, there is no investment in music, our entertaiment industry is dead. No money for artistes to do shows and travel to promote their music, movie is dead..talents are not getting investments.
8 months ago, Zylofon signs 5 movie stars and 5 musicians including top guys Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. Gives them cars, houses, pays for their travels to promote their music all over the world.
Zylofon organizes two major shows for Stonebwoy, Ashaiman to the world and Bhim concert. All paid for by Zylofon. No sponsors. Another big show for Becca as Zylofon paid and recorded her album..launched it and paid for marketing in Europe and everywhere. Spends over $4M to get Wizkid, Davido, MI, name them all to come to Becca’s show.
2 months ago Zylofon put down $1M arts fund for all player to access to invest in there creativity.Zylofon has set up a fully paid A&R department, Sales and Distribution with outlet all over Ghana for artiste to sell their albums. Sets up online monetisation for all creative people.
To expand the conglomerate Zylofon buys space and has constructed a state of the art auditorium for performers.They have invested in new branches in the UK to help GH artistes connect to Europe with their materials.
Zylofon has full time road managers, PROs, Video directors, etc..to help their signed artistes. Well they have opened TV and radio also to employ and create more platforms. Well, they have a chopper and private jet for record labels operations.
In all these. Ghanaians are asking for Zylofon Music’s achievements in the one year they have been in existence. Ghanaians are saying..what have they done?
Yes, Kwame NKRUMAH came to Ghana. These same people. We are and forever be Ghanaians.
Can you imagine Zylofon being Nigerian??”
