Entertainment company, Zylofon Media, has sacked its Transport Manager, Eric Amponsah over an incident that happened at the Champs Bar during the weekend.
According to entertainmentgh.com, the company has terminated the appointment of the Transport Manager for supervising the attempted seizure of Stonebwoy’s car during Kelvyn Boy’s Afrobeat programme at Paloma Hotel on Saturday.
This comes after the management had launched investigations into the scuffle that resulted in gunshots from Stonebwoy at the programme.
Although Bulldog’s had come up earlier as the instigator of the fracas, the investigations prove that it was rather Mr. Amponsah who engineered that act.
Sources say, this is just the beginning of the major shake-up which is about to happen in their bid to strengthen the structures of the company.
What really happened at the Champs Bar?
Stonebwoy on Saturday was reported to have been engaged in a scuffle with some officers of his record label, Zylofon Music, who had gone to the premises to take from him, a car purported to have been given to him by the company.
Report has it that Stonebwoy had earlier been to the University of Ghana to perform at the Artistes Night of the Hilla Limann Week Celebration. At the behest of Stonebwoy and his management, the organizers took off all Zylofon Media banners. This deepened speculations that the ‘My Name’ hit maker may have severed relationship with Zylofon Media.
Lawrence Nana Asiamah aka Bulldog who is the Artiste and Repertoire Manager for Zylofon Music went to the premise off the show and asked that the cars which were branded in Zylofon insignia were taken away, upon seeing how things branded with Zylofon tags were being disposed off.
By then, Stonebwoy had left for the Champs Bar at the Paloma Hotel where his protégé Kelvin Boy was performing.
According to Stonebwoy, 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.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah has asked fans of Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and his company to stay calm as they solve any problem that may have caused the ‘fight.’
