‘Stonebwoy was given a week to stay or leave Zylofon’ – Kumi Guitar spill beans



The first artiste signed by Zylofon Media, Kumi Guitar, has revealed that dancehall act, Stonebwoy was given a week to his fate with the record label.

The ultimatum, he said, was given to the once beloved artiste of the label after a meeting with the management of the media outfit a week ago.

The highlife artiste said he had decided not to speak on the raging beef between Zylofon Media and Stonebwoy but he has been left no choice after the nasty turn of events at the University of Ghana campus on Saturday.

“Last Saturday, the Legon students had a show in collaboration with Zylofon and we were all billed to perform. We waited for a while for the performances to begin when a fan called me that some people are pulling down all the Zylofon banners we’ve used to brand the place…so he was asking if the show was not coming off since he’s not seen us perform…” Kumi Guitar told in an exclusive interview.

Kumi Guitar said he was confused when he got information that Stonebwoy had allegedly asked that the banners and Zylofon t-shirts be removed.

“…if you have an issue with Zylofon, do you have an issue with me? No! Do you have an issue with Obinini? No! Do you have an issue with Joyce Blessing?” Kumi Guitar, who was clearly disappointed with the turn of events, quizzed wondering why Stonebwoy didn’t allow them to perform at the event.

While he won’t comment on the follow up nasty incident at the Champs Bar at Paloma on Saturday night where Stonebwoy fired a warning shot and Bulldog allegedly tried to seize the dancehall act’s car keys, Kumi believes that the story had to be told properly for people to have a clear picture of what was really going on.

“If these things keep happening and he [Stonebwoy] succeeds or people don’t get the picture right, he might succeed in pulling down Zylofon and if Zylofon is down, I am down,” the man who believes he influenced the establishment of Zylofon Media said.

The ‘Betweener’ singer noted that Stonebwoy and Zylofon have a contract, therefore, it was important that the two parties resolve their issues amicably.

He said if one party constantly fails to fulfil their end of the contract, the other party has to point it out.

According to Kumi Guitar, Zylofon Media paid all Stonebwoy’s expenses including his trips, recordings and his two major concerts – one at Ashaiman and the other at the National Theatre.

“What I heard was that he got angry because Shatta [Wale] was signed… if you fail to give him what he wants, automatically he [Nana Appiah Mensah – Zylofon Media CEO] will fail to give you what you want.

“Better still, he will go look for somebody who can do the job for him if you cannot do it,” he said.

He strongly believes Mr Appiah Mensah did nothing wrong by signing Shatta Wale after all “Stonebwoy is not a shareholder of Zylofon.”

“He can argue that maybe in his contract, they wrote that he is the one representing Dancehall so they shouldn’t bring somebody else.

“If you are representing Dancehall, it’s not just about representing but you also have to represent Zylofon, since you are an ambassador,” he added.

According to him, those representing the brand are also supposed to promote it with hashtags when they post on social media, but Stonebwoy has failed to do this and the CEO has complained about it on several occasions.

Kumi Guitar warned that where Stonebwoy is going with the issue is dangerous because his actions could have ripple effects on other artistes on the label.

“I’m starting to talk because I began this thing. Our boss wouldn’t have been in this industry. I was the one who spoke to him to do it and I wasn’t selfish.

“I told him to add people on board and you [Stonebwoy] also got to be a beneficiary…yes he was Stonebwoy before we met him but can he say that Zylofon has added nothing to him?”

“You’ve been spoken to and then you’ve been given the opportunity to decide if you still want to be part of us as a family…if you want to go also, it’s your decision. For a week now, you’ve not responded only for you to do this. Is it that you want to frustrate the investor or you want to frustrate Zylofon,” he questioned Stonewoy’s actions.

He wouldn’t confirm or deny Stonebwoy’s exit from the label and could not also tell if there is still a valid contract with the dancehall artiste.

Kumi Guitar said he will release a song, ‘Gyae’ about the current impasse on Monday to urge Stonebwoy to “stop” what he is doing.

“If you feel that Zylofon is not a brand you want to associate with you should have pulled out,” he stressed.



Regretful Counselor Lutterodt apologizes to Yvonne Nelson



Popular radio and television relationship counselor, Reverend George Lutterodt has issued an apology to Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson for comments attributed to him in which he heaved verbal abuses.

Lutterodt, who in an interview on TV Africa’s Breakfast Live tagged the actress as a “disgraceful born one” rendered a heartfelt apology to the movie director and producer on same show this week.

Ghanaians and industry players descended on Counselor Lutterodt over comments to the actress that have been tagged as ‘’uncalled for’’.

Speaking on TV Africa, he said: “To Yvonne Nelson, I say a very big sorry. The wording of the write-up, the conversation and video didn’t really match up, however since it has been said and has denigrated your brand, I sincerely apologize.’’

He further added that he personally has no grudge against the actress and reiterated that he makes comments based on the issues which are been discussed.

“We didn’t sit here to say we are coming to mock Yvonne Nelson or talk about Yvonne, No! But usually and constantly when the issues come up and in the quest to addressing them those things come in line. So the headline that says “Ashawo” or ‘born one” isn’t what it is. If you play the video, that’s not what it is. However, once it was derogatory to Yvonne Nelson and has hurt her brand, I will want to use this same platform that was used, to apologize to her. Yvonne Nelson, I am sorry.’’

“Every statement that has been said, even if it wasn’t what the write-up says, I retract it.” He ended.
