The manager of the late dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns has lambasted the CEO of Zylofon Media for disclosing that, the late artiste begged him to bail her out by paying him $100,000.
Ricky Nana Agyeman, known in showbiz circles as Bullet, who was infuriated told Accra based Okay FM that his artiste was worth more than $100,000. Speaking to Abeiku Santana Monday, he said the amount he spent on Ebony was worth more than $100,000.
His comments follow revelations by Nana Appiah Mensah that Ebony begged him to bail her out from the hands of Bullet.
In his first tweet Nana Appiah Mensah, talked about a successful meeting with the late “Maame hwe” hitmaker, it reads “we had a fruitful meeting and reached an agreement just last Tuesday. “Please help me pay him for my bailout. I want to be free”. I hope you`re free now and finds absolute peace in the bosom of the almighty God. Let`s pay CRITICAL ATTENTION to our female artistes. #RIPEBONY”
His tweet drew wide condemnation from the public. Following the backlash, he clarified the tweet on Zylofon FM today [Monday].
“Yes, I had a meeting with Ebony on Tuesday and sadly, that was the first time we met and last time we spoke. It was a possible signing discussion with an artiste which is the first stage to determine the artiste’s interest or otherwise. In our discussion, she emphasized and it was agreed that before she goes out of the contract, she has to satisfy a termination clause in the contract by paying her record label Ruff Town Records an amount of USD$100,000 of which Zylofon Media was ready to fulfill. That was what she termed as a bail out and there was no way we could do that without reaching out to Ruff Town Recordz.
But reacting to the issue, Bullet slammed Nana Appiah Mensah for even making his discussions he held with Ebony public.
At no point did Ebony asked to part ways with me. She never did. Probably, it was the Zylofon team that chased her with money and wanted to forcibly sign her onto their label.
Ebony he also revealed was rather dictating to management what she wanted done for her. She was not under any bondage that demanded a bail out. We did not make enough money from Ebony neither did we cheat her from the little we had,’ he said.
