Zylofon paid Wizkid, others $ 4m for Becca’s anniversary concert – Head of Production
Head of Production at Zylofon Media, Enoch Atakorah, has revealed that Zylofon Media paid the Nigerian artistes that performed at Becca’s 10th anniversary concert last year over 4 million dollars.
He posted on his Facebook timeline detailing all the achievements of the company since it started operation in the country about a year ago. He also bemoaned criticism by the public on recent controversies about his company.
According to him, it is unfair to assert that Zylofon Media has not contributed to the entertainment industry in the midst of the Stonewbwoy-Zylofon brouhaha.
He mentioned among other things, concerts Zylofon Media organized for Stonebwoy and Becca, Zylofon Arts Fund, Zylofon’s Sales and Distribution outlets, Zylofon Cash, as some of the companies achievements so far.

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.
