- Zylofon CEO has said he is not worried about attacks directed at him by some 'ignorant' social media users
- He says his tribute to the late Ebony was to rather call for support for Ghanaian female artistes
The Chief Executive of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah has disclosed that the late dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns virtually begged him at a meeting to ‘bail her out’ of $100,000 from Ruff Town Records, and its manager Bullet, as part of an exit clause in her contract.
According to the CEO, he never reached out to Ebony to entice her of any package, but he rather met Ebony after she made several attempts to have a meeting with him.
Nana Appiah Mensah has come under heavy criticisms after his ‘bail out’ tweet in memory of Ebony went viral on various social media platforms.

The CEO in a twee said, “We had a fruitful meeting and reached an Agreement just last Tuesday, please help me pay him for my bail out. I want to be free". I hope you're free now & finds absolute peace in the bosom of the almighty God. Let's pay CRITICAL ATTENTION to our female artists".
However, speaking on Zylofon Media on Monday morning, Chief Executive Officer said he is not worried about attacks directed at him out of ignorant.
The CEO clarified that he was rather trying to address some real challenges faced by some Ghanaian female artistes in the entertainment industry but his main message was ignored.
“What I wrote for me was a noble call on affirmative action for our female artistes in the industry. So what exactly is wrong with that?” He bemoaned.

He also added that his tribute was not any different from what many other Ghanaians wrote about Ebony, just that he decided to dwell on the fact that a critical attention needs to be paid to the human resource of the country.
“I’m an advocate of human resource, and I was suggesting that what has happened has happened, but going forward we need to pay critical attention to our female artistes in the country..”
So what I was expecting was that the media was going to asked me why we should pay critical attention to our female artistes? But that was rather ignored,” he lamented.
Nana Appiah therefore called on Ghanaians to stop being hypocritical about Ghanaian female artistes and rather support and celebrate their works whiles they are alive.
