Stonebwoy’s two-year contract with Zylofon Music record label has ended, citinewsroom.com can confirm.
The contract technically ended on May 18, 2019.
This means that the dancehall artiste is no longer under the auspices of the record company.
His Burniton Music Group is in full control of activities regarding his brand, craft and entire music business.
Stonebwoy was signed on to Zylofon Music record label on Thursday, June 15, 2017, at the Zylofon Music head office at East Legon.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah explained, at the time, that the company decided to sign Stonebwoy because he had a great music talent that could be placed anywhere on the world music market.
“Stonebwoy is not just an artiste, he understands music and is not just an everyday artiste that is good at getting in front of the mic and singing,” he said.
Although details of the contract were not disclosed to the media, reports had it that Stonebwoy was initially signed for three years.
However, later, the contract was reviewed to two years at the behest of Stonebwoy (born Livingstone Etse Satekla).
The contract entailed music production, marketing and promotion for the artiste.
In March 2018, there was an altercation between Stonebwoy’s team and some management executives of Zylofon Music.
According to Stonebwoy, he was uncomfortable with the posture of some elements at the record label who had shown dislike for his person and craft.
However, he has shown unflinching support and love for the embattled CEO of the record label, Nana Appiah Mensah, whose gold dealership company, Menzgold has suffered a closure by Security and Exchanges Commission (SEC).
