Zylofon Media's head of production, Enoch Atakorah has let the cat out of the bag as to exactly how much was paid to bring down Wizkid, Davido and MI to Ghana for Becca's 10th-anniversary concert last year.

In a Facebook post, Tuesday he revealed that Zylofon media spent a total of 4 million US dollars to get Wizkid, Davido, MI and other artists to perform at Becca's show last year.

Enoch Atakorah also expressed displeasure at how Ghanaians are criticizing the company and questioning its credibility despite its many achievements in the entertainment industry in Ghana in the midst of the Zylofon-Stonebwoy brouhaha.

Reacting to conversations relating to Zylofon media and Stonebwoy which have been making headlines, the head of production at Zylofon Media listed some of the achievements of the company since they gained grounds a year ago. 

Read his Facebook post below:

“A year ago, Ghanaians were screaming everywhere, there is no investment in music, our entertaiment industry is dead. No money for artistes to do shows and travel to promote their music, movie is dead..talents are not getting investments.

8 months ago, Zylofon media signs 5 movie stars and 5 musicians including top guys Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. Gives them cars, houses, pays for their travels to promote their music all over the world.

Zylofon organizes two major shows for Stonebwoy, Ashaiman to the world and Bhim concert. All paid for by Zylofon. No sponsors. Another big show for Becca as Zylofon paid and recorded her album..launched it and paid for marketing in Europe and everywhere. Spends over $4M to get Wizkid, Davido, MI, name them all to come to Becca’s show.

2 months ago Zylofon media put down $1M arts fund for all player to access to invest in there creativity.

Zylofon has set up a fully paid A&R department, Sales and Distribution with outlet all over Ghana for artiste to sell their albums. Sets up online monetisation for all creative people.

To expand the conglomerate Zylofon buys space and has constructed a state of the art auditorium for performers.

They have invested in new branches in the UK to help GH artistes connect to Europe with their materials.

Zylofon has full time road managers, PROs, Video directors, help their signed artistes. Well they have opened TV and radio also to employ and create more platforms.

Well, they have a chopper and private jet for record labels operations.

In all these. Ghanaians are asking for Zylofon Music’s achievements in the one year they have been in existence. Ghanaians are saying..what have they done?

Yes, Kwame NKRUMAH came to Ghana. These same people. We are and forever be Ghanaians.

Can you imagine Zylofon being Nigerian??”
