We pray that Stonebwoy’s attackers will be sanctioned – Burniton Music Group
The management of Stonebwoy’s Bhim Nation movement (Burniton Music) has called on powers that be to deal with workers of Zylofon Media who attacked the artiste and his team on Saturday at Champs Bar.
In a press release sighted by Citi Showbiz on Stonebwoy’s official Facebook page, the management appalls the act that got the brother of Stonebwoy’s brother injured and his money missing in the scuffle.
“We pray they will robustly deal with those responsible for these disgraceful acts in order to reassure Ghanaians of their safety. We trust no professional organization within Ghana will endorse such acts which bring shame and disrepute to its members,” the statement reads.
“So we pray that swift action will be taken to sanction those responsible or connected with the incident,” it continues.
On Saturday, March 10, 2018, it was reported that Stonebwoy and his team were attacked by some officers from Zylofon Media who had gone to take a car purported to have been given him by the company.
According to Lawrence Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog who is the Artiste & Repertoire Manager of Zylofon Music, both parties had agreed that Stonebwoy handed over a Zylofon car in his possession at the Zylofon office by midday on Saturday but he did not do that.
Stonebwoy who had been to Champs Bar at the Paloma Hotel to support his protégé Kelvyn Boy at the Afrobeat Tour 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.
Management of Stonebwoy also reported the case to the Nima Police Station.
Bulldog and the Zylofon Media team who had earlier been to the University of Ghana where Stonebwoy had performed at the Hilla Limann Week Celebration, followed up with some workers of 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.
Meanwhile, Nana Appiah Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer of Zylofon Media has rendered an unqualified apology to Stonebwoy for the attack on him and his team by some Zylofon Media staff.
“I apologize to team @stonebwoyb and all well wishers for the unfortunate ill incident that occurred. The transport manager exercised a discretion characterized by reflex and over exuberance. An act I vehemently condemn and discourage from our society,” he tweeted.
The company is reported to have also fired its Transport Manager, Eric Amponsah who Bulldog said led the retrieval of the car and its resultant actions.
