The disclaimer from Zylofon Media as regards some ‘flippant’ and ‘unfortunate’ remarks Willi Roi made against Stonebwoy is not enough to calm nerves as the artiste demands an apology from the Zylofon staff.
Willi Roi who is the Head of Zylofon Arts Club (music department) in a Facebook post remarked that Stonebwoy has been receiving peanuts as performance fees and it appears the artiste is content with that, abrantepa.com reported earlier.
While tagging Stonebwoy as an ingrate, Roi referred to the ‘Bawasaba’ hit maker as Ewe Eagle, a comment some have described as tribal and have consequently called for his dismissal.
Zylofon Media in a statement condemned Willi Roi’s utterances and disassociated “itself from the flippant commentary from its Executive, noting that the unfortunate post does not in any way reflect the position of the label.”
The statement signed by Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, Director of Communications at Zylofon Music added that, “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.”
But Stonebwoy asserts that the disclaimer is certainly not enough.
“PRO Arnold, kindly Cut the Press Release sermon. It is just WISE For Willi Roi To Render an apology To BHIMNATION And the Entire EWE people For The Disrespect..” he tweeted.
