Zylofon Media artiste, Kumi Guitar has disclosed that Stonebwoy was given a week ultimatum to decide his fate with the music label.

Kumi said he was pushed to talk about the issue following the recent happenings.

“Last Saturday, the Legon students had a show in collaboration with Zylofon and we were all billed to perform. We waited for a while for the performances to begin when a fan called me that some people are pulling down all the Zylofon banners we’ve used to brand the place…so he was asking if the show was not coming off since he’s not seen us perform…” Kumi Guitar told Myjoyonline.com in an exclusive interview.

He lamented speculations that Stonebwoy asked his guys to remove the banners and T-shirts of Zylofon Media when they put together a show at the University of Ghana campus on Saturday.

“If you have an issue with Zylofon, do you have an issue with me? No! Do you have an issue with Obinini? No! Do you have an issue with Joyce Blessing?” Kumi Guitar, who was clearly disappointed with the turn of events, quizzed wondering why Stonebwoy didn’t allow them to perform at the event.

“If these things keep happening and he [Stonebwoy] succeeds or people don’t get the picture right, he might succeed in pulling down Zylofon and if Zylofon is down, I am down,” the man who believes he influenced the establishment of Zylofon Media said.

He further stated that it will be prudent for Stonebwoy and Zylofon to settle their differences amicably.

“What I heard was that he got angry because Shatta [Wale] was signed… if you fail to give him what he wants, automatically he [Nana Appiah Mensah – Zylofon Media CEO] will fail to give you what you want.
“Better still, he will go look for somebody who can do the job for him if you cannot do it,” he said.

He strongly believes Mr Appiah Mensah did nothing wrong by signing Shatta Wale after all “Stonebwoy is not a shareholder of Zylofon.”
“He can argue that maybe in his contract, they wrote that he is the one representing Dancehall so they shouldn’t bring somebody else.
“If you are representing Dancehall, it’s not just about representing but you also have to represent Zylofon, since you are an ambassador,” he added.

“I’m starting to talk because I began this thing. Our boss wouldn’t have been in this industry. I was the one who spoke to him to do it and I wasn’t selfish.

“I told him to add people on board and you [Stonebwoy] also got to be a beneficiary…yes he was Stonebwoy before we met him but can he say that Zylofon has added nothing to him?”

“You’ve been spoken to and then you’ve been given the opportunity to decide if you still want to be part of us as a family…if you want to go also, it’s your decision. For a week now, you’ve not responded only for you to do this. Is it that you want to frustrate the investor or you want to frustrate Zylofon,” he questioned Stonewoy’s actions.

Kumi Guitar disclosed his readiness to release a song, ‘Gyae’ about the current impasse on Monday to urge Stonebwoy to “stop” what he is doing.

“If you feel that Zylofon is not a brand you want to associate with you should have pulled out,” he stressed.
