Kumi Guitar jabs Stonebwoy in latest song [Audio]
Few days after the ‘scuffle’ between Zylofon Media and Stonebwoy, highlife artiste Kumi Guitar has released a song to address the issue.
Kumi Guitar, the first signee of Zylofon Music record label has released a song titled ‘Gyae’ which takes the dance hall artiste on for being ‘selfish.’
Kumi, who explained his intensions behind the making of the song said he was disappointed in Stonebwoy’s act at the University of Ghana during the Hilla Limann Week Celebration.
According to reports, the management of Stonebwoy instructed the organisers of the hall week celebration to pull down banners that had Zylofon Media inscription. Some of the company’s artistes like Kumi Guitar, could not even perform at the Zylofon-sponsored programme.
Stonebwoy who left for the Champs Bar at the Paloma Hotel to support his protégé Kelvyn Boy at the Afrobeat Tour that recounted that while in a room at the hotel, he sent his brother to fetch him his clothes from his car when he heard noise from outside.
“They hit [my brother] on the lips, they took the car keys from him and they sat in the car…if not for my bodyguard, they would have driven my car away and that would have been something else,” he recounted.
He then fired gunshots to dispel the crowd so they could move the car.
Apparently, Bulldog had followed up with is guys to the Champ Bar to take the car from him but Stonebwoy has stated that the car in question is his personal property and not what Zylofon gave to him.
Speaking on Zylofon FM, Kumi asked Stonebwoy to leave the company if he felt he did not want to be part of the record label again.
“If he is not comfortable, he should speak with the management of the company. Before he was signed, there was Shatta Wale. Nobody pre-informed me that any artiste would be signed on Zylofon but he was signed,” he said.
He said Stonebwoy is not a shareholder so he can’t take decisions for the company and that if he has any problem, he should address it with the management.
“The Zylofon boss wanted to work with me alone. But I spoke to him to help the industry by adding others to the family and he was willing to help. So it is painful if we allow our acts drag his reputation in the mud. If it had not been me, he wouldn’t be in this business,” he further stated.
Kumi Guitar’s song song, ‘Gyae,’ simply admonishes Stonebwoy to stop causing problems for Zylofon Media.
The song chronicles all the major record labels that have folded up in the country and states that it will be difficult to kind an investor to put up an entertainment company like Zylofon Media.
In the meantime, the Chief Executive Officer of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensha has called on all parties involved in the matter to stay calm as the management finds amicable solutions to the problem.
