- Kumi Guitar says Zylofon boss understands business and knows exactly what he is doing
- The highlife musician says Ghanaians must stop discouraging Nana Appiah Mensah
Popular highlife musician, Nana Yaw Kumi, popularly known as Kumi Guitar has discounted claims that the Chief Executive of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah is wasting his investments by running the record label.
According to Kumi Guitar, his boss is not throwing away his hard earned money as being speculated by some section of the public.
To him, the Zylofon Media CEO is much aware that channeling resources into the music business is a long term investment.
Speaking to Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z on Saturday, the Zylofon artiste stressed that the company CEO is not ‘stupid’ and knows exactly what he is doing.
“He [Nana Appiah Mensah] knows that it is a long-term investment. He could have put his money into other investments that will yield him money every month. Or probably six months or three months and he will be okay. He doesn’t need to come to the media for people to insult him like we do these days,” Kumi said.
The talented highlife artiste believes that his boss is not "stupid" and alluded to the words of his mother concerning business.
“My mum will tell you that foolish men don’t make money….Anytime I go talk to her that Nana Appiah, the business is going this way… putting more money in, she tells me he knows what he is doing,” Kumi disclosed.
Kumi Guitar who was clearly not happy in his conversation bemoaned the manner in which Ghanaians tend to criticize and discourage Nana Appiah from investing in the creative arts industry.
“He won’t give up. He knows that we don’t appreciate anything as Ghanaians. If he was a Nigerian doing this Zylofon thing, we will support as Ghanaians,” he lamented.
Barely two years after the establishment of Zylofon Media, a number of critics have predicted doom ahead of the company.
Production Manager of Zylofon Media, Enoch Atakorah, speaking recently in a media interview revealed that, the company spent a whopping $4 million just to book Nigerian artistes to perform at ‘Becca @ 10’ concert.
