I won’t renew my contract with Zylofon —Stonebwoy

Stonebwoy, after more than a year of signing to Zylofon Music, says he has no plans of renewing the contract.

Born Livingstone Etse Satekla, the dancehall artiste said the contract that was signed in June 2017 would not be extended because he was not happy at the label.

The Ashiaman-based artiste joined highlife musician, Kumi Guitar, and singer, Becca, who were earlier signed by the media and entertainment outfit.

Gospel musician, Joyce Blessing, rapper Obibini and dancehall act, Shatta Wale, joined the label after that.

 

His time at Zylofon Music hasn’t been without drama. There was a nasty incident at the Champs Bar at Paloma in March this year where Stonebwoy fired a warning shot and Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson (Bulldog) allegedly tried to seize the dancehall act’s car keys.

 

Asked in an interview if he was happy at Zylofon Music, Stonebwoy swiftly responded “no.”

 

He noted that Zylofon Music has good intentions but all is not well at the label.

 

The ‘Baafira’ hitmaker revealed that he had wanted to opt out of the contract but some of the issues were resolved so he had to stay.

 

 

Even though Stonebwoy won’t still disclose how long the deal was signed for, he said he believed strongly that some people at Zylofon Media always wanted him out of the deal.

 

When asked what his relationship with Bulldog, Head of Artists and Repertoire (A&R) at Zylofon Music, is, he said there was no bond.

 

He said “I don’t have a friendly” relationship with Bulldog neither is there a working relationship with him.

 

Stonebwoy disclosed that when his contract was over, “I will like to exit” unless there is something they can work on.

 

The dancehall act noted that one can’t see poison and drink it.

 

Meanwhile, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bulldog, has refuted reports suggesting that Zylofon Music does not like dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy.

 

According to him, the dancehall artiste may have personal issues with some people on the music label but that does not imply Zylofon Music does not like him.

 

Bulldog, who is Artiste Manager and Head of Zylofon Music, was reacting to revelations by Artiste Manager and Entertainment critic, Mr Logic, that R. Kelly and Teddy Riley had sent messages that they wanted to collaborate with Stonebwoy, who is signed to Zylofon Music.

 

Mr Logic disclosed that Willie Roi, who is Artiste & Repertoire (A&R) Manager at Zylofon Music, refused to pass on that information to Stonebwoy and his management.
