Manager of popular Ghanaian gospel musician, Joyce Blessing, has taken a swipe at Zylofon Media for failing to endorse her prime event since she joined the media company.
According to Dave Joy, who doubles as husband of the singer, Zylofon Media promised to support the Joyce Blessing’s foundation launch only to redraw their assistance at the dying minute.
Speaking on Accra-based Hitz FM on Thursday, Dave Joy, who was clearly bitter, disclosed that Zylofon Media failed pay GHC32,000 budget meant for Joyce Blessing Foundation launch as part of programme lined up for the artiste’s birthday celebration.
When asked why Zylofon Media missed out on supporting the artiste at the Akropong School for the Blind, where the foundation launch took place, Dave said that the Communication Director of the company, Arnold Asamoah released a press statement a day before the event, saying the budget for the launch was too high.
Joyce Blessing’s manager stressed in his media interview that he was surprised that Zylofon Media couldn’t even wish Joyce Blessing a ‘happy birthday’ on their numerous platforms.
“What blessing did they give Joyce? They couldn’t even wish Joyce a happy birthday on Zylofon FM. Zylofon wasn’t present at the launch even though we invited them. They were the sponsors and drew budget for everything”, he said.
Dave Joy also added, “We wrote proposal letters for sponsorship and Zylofon confirmed but at the latter part they said they couldn’t do it. This is Joyce Blessing’s first event under the label”.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Arnold Asamoah on the same platform, he rubbished the assertions, insisting that the media company supported Joyce Blessing on all social media platforms with artworks of the foundation.
“There is a very cordial relationship between the label and artiste. I think it’s only fairly appropriate for them to articulate their feelings. You write to the human resource personnel. I believe if she has an issue or complaint she had to tell the label. We gave her our support, with regard to artwork and everything”, Arnold Asamoah said.
