Ghanaian rapper, Obibini has taken a swipe at his colleague, Amerado over their lyrical clash that generated the interest of music lovers in Ghana.
Obibini and Amerado locked horns and attacked each other with their diss songs after the latter challenged him to release a diss track against him following his punchy freestyle at Tim Westwood TV.
In an interview with Andy Dosty TV, Obibini said that Amerado has regretted his actions by coming at him because he is the one benefitting from the beef now.
Acording to the Zylofon Music signee, Amerado could both return with another beef song because he has come to terms with the fact that he made a bad investment by attacking him in the first place and he boldly asserted that he won in lyrical battle whereas Amerado lost.
Ghanaian businessman, music executive and boss of Zylofon Music, Nana Appiah Mensah simply known as Nam1 has reacted weighed in the lyrical war between his label signee, Obibini and Kumerica star, Amerado.
The beef between Amerado and Obibini, has amassed a lot of numbers and attention within this few days.
The arguments and discussion as to who is k.illing who has been on going on several platforms, and Zylofon Media boss Nam1, has decided to add his voice to it.
He made a statement saying,
“Heard my son is busy pit patting, punning & peeing on a peasant’s poodle carcass in a puddle. Hold it @obibiniboafo. M7 are you ready for a big concert? Get the #YardieRemixloud and on replay. Bless up @amerado_burner @obibiniboafo”
The flaming beef in the Ghanaian music industry ongoing has taken a new angle as rapper and Zylofon Music signee, Obibini has fired shots at top rapper and senior colleague, Sarkodie amid his beef with Amerado.
Obibini was hosted by ace TV and radio personality Giovano Caleb on TV3 where he dropped a highly controversial comment that has since sparked an uproar in the industry on social media.
When he was asked during the tail end of the interview to name his top 5 rappers in Ghana presently, he mentioned M.anifest, Lyrical Joe, Strongman and Black Sherif.
Yeah-conspicuously missing is Sarkodie, Ghana’s best and most decorated rapper of the last decade.
When Giovani Caleb drew his attention to the fact that he has omitted Sarkodie’s name regardless of his opinion being subjective, Obinini offered an interesting reaction.
He said although Sarkodie is good, he won’t make it into his top 5 list of best rappers now. He added that Sarkodie will only make it if he extends the list to the top 10.
Sensational entertainment company – Zylofon Media, has officially unveiled its ultra-modern office in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.
The grand opening of the office located at Anloga Junction had most of the top music and movie stars in the region gracing the occasion on Thursday August, 3, 2017.
Familiar faces present included; Emelia Brobbey, Bill Asamoah, Mercy Asiedu, Papa Kumasi, Ellen White, Wyoosi, Big Akwes, Flowking Stone, Samuel Ofori, Maame Serwaa and many others.
Head of Production at Zylofon Media Enoch Atakorah, in his statement said, their office is open for business, which they intern to support Kumawood movie so they can get their movie and other contents can be bought and shared on online.
Also speaking at the launch Mr. Sammy Baah, Head of Public Relations at Zylofon Media said: “the long -awaited office has finally been unveiled and I believe your cry has finally been answered because Zylofon is here to support and also provide all the necessary logistics to aid film-makers, musicians and other great talents in showbiz fraternities”.
He continued that, Zylofon as a company seeks to appreciate the work of developers; by exchanging value for their works. Zylofon Media sees the entertainment and creative arts industry as the new phase of entrepreneurship in Ghana and beyond hence aspires to invest its resources into this growing industry. Quality comes with a price; therefore, good contents merits, a greater value.
Opportunities were given to kumawood stars and the media as they quizzed Zylofon heads on their plans to support the movie industry and also thanked them for bringing Zylofon Media office in Ashanti Region.
Zylofon Media signees Bibi Bright, Zynnell Zuh, TooSweet Annan, James Gardiner, Obibini, Kumi Guitar, Eddie Nartey among others were also present.
After signing on 10 artistes in the last six months, tongues have started wagging about whether entertainment company, Zylofon Media really knows what it is about.
But Zylon Media wants those tongues to stay put because it has ‘its head well screwed on’ and the fast track signing on of artistes is a good business decision.
Artistes under the wings of the company are Kumi Guitar, Becca, Stonebwoy, Joyce Blessing, Obibini, James Gardener, Benedicta Gafah, Bibi Bright, Zynell Zuh and Too Sweet Annan.
Although they they do not reveal all, Zylofon Media is believed to offer juicy deals comprising of houses, large sums of money, cars among others which is making people wonder how they are going to break even and go ahead to make profit.
Among industry players who feel the rapid sign-ons of Zylofon Media may result in it going the way of of similar companies that have preceded it, is artiste manager, Enoch Adjepong.
“Why do you think the likes of Mad Time Records, Goodies and Agicoat went out of business? Records sales are no more booming in Ghana and I wonder why a new record label would sign on so many artistes.
“Honestly what are they signing the artistes for; there is no way Kumi Guitar for example can make profit for the four year contract he has signed”, Enoch Agyepong who manages Fatao Keita, traditional artiste said.
According to him, he would not have any doubts if Zylofon Media just wants to use the artistes to organise events but to rake in sales is a bit far fetched for him.
However, Samuel Atuobi Baah, Head of Communications at Zylofon Media has a different story to tell.
According to him, Zylofon Media knows what it is about adding that his outfit took into consideration all the advantages and disadvantages before signing the artistes on.
“It is not as if the company has a lot of money to throw away. We want to help the entertainment industry that has suffered for a long time to grow. The entertainment industry to have a record label to sign on great talents” he said.
He explained that, Zylofon Media did a lot of research before it began operating.
“We are aware of all the record labels that signed on a lot of artistes and went burst. We have a well-thought out plan and very soon Ghanaians will know that Zylofon Media means business” he stated.
To him it is too early for anyone to describe Kumi Guitar as a failure adding that their outfit has a great plan for the Break Into Two singer. Mr. Samuel Atuobi Baah revealed that a lot of artistes are knocking on their door to be signed on. “ But we are not just signing for signing sake, we mean business and when our outfit is convinced about a particular artiste then we put pen on paper” he added.
