Communications Director for Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo has come out to clear the air about the state of Hiplife artist, Akoo Nana concerning his signing deal with Zylofon. Over the weekend, CEO of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah honored an invitation at Kasoa Festival and proposed a signing deal with Akoo Nana to join his label. This act of the CEO sparked up rumors in the early days of the week that the artist has joined the label.
Arnold in an interview with DJ Murphy Lee on Bohye FM’s Mid-morning Groove in Kumasi, explained the act as something of a proposal and they are yet to confirm from Akoo Nana whether or not he will join the label.
“Officially Zylofon has not signed Akoo Nana. We have a way that signed artistes are unveiled. From the first artiste that we signed, Kumi Guitar, Becca, Obibini, Joyce Blessing, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale we hold a big press conference to unveil them. We haven’t reached that stage yet with Akoo Nana and we haven’t put a pen on a paper with him yet. For now, there is no contract between him and Zylofon Music”.
“Over the weekend we honored an invitation to a festival in Kasoa and some of the youth and chiefs called on us to sign him. Mind you, he is a sub-chief at Kasoa. So Nana Appiah told them there is no need for them to plead for him to be signed and he therefore proposed a management deal to him. He proposed a three-year management deal. So that is the stage we are in now. It is now up to Akoo Nana to accept or reject.”
He further added that the deal with Akoo Nana is a management deal and not a label deal like the other signed artistes. ” This deal is different from what we have signed with the other artistes. The other deals were recording deals while the yet-to-be-signed deal with Akoo Nana is a management deal.
