STONEBWOY REFUSES TO REPORT KNIFE ATTACK ON HIS WIFE TO POLICE

Zylofon Media, managers of dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy has revealed that they haven’t reported the attack on the musician’s wife to the police.

Sammy Baah, Public Relations Officer of Zylofone Media explained that they saw no reason to report the alleged attack on Stonebwoy’s wife, Louisa Satekla at the ‘Ashaiman to the World’ concert which was held over the weekend in Ashaiman.

Stonebwoy and his wife were allegedly injured in a knife attack just moments before he took to the stage to perform at the concert.

Unknown assailants cut through the tent in which the BET Award winner and his wife had lodged prior to the show.

Mr Baah on Monday admitted on Hitz FM’s Day Break Hitz with KMJ that there were some loose ends in the measures taken to ensure the safety of Stonebwoy.

He added that these errors will definitely be rectified in order to avoid such incidents in the future concerts to be held by Zylofone Media.

Sammy Baah, also known as Sammy Flex, claimed that it would have been pointless to have reported the incident to the police.

STONBWOY’S WIFE DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL

Wife of Dancehall act Stonebwoy, Dr. Louisa Ansong who was hospitalized after sustaining an injury as result of an alleged knife attack, has been discharged from the hospital.

A management member of the “Baafira” hit maker tells Peacefmonline.com that Louisa was rushed to hospital on Saturday night September 30, after she felt a sharp cut at her back and started bleeding inside a tent meant for her and her husband.

Thankfully, she was discharged from the hospital yesterday, Sunday October 1 and she is currently recovering in the comfort of her home.

“She has been discharged and currently recovering at home. She is very well and thank God everything is fine now”, the source told Peacefmonline.com.

Stonebwoy’s management also dismissed rumors that Dancehall artiste Shattawale who was there to support Stonebwoy, could have a hand in the attack.

Management insists that, Ghanaians should stop drawing conclusions and making false judgments when things happen coincidentally making it clear that Shattawele doesn’t have any associations with the said incident.

“This has nothing to do with Shatta Wale or his presence there. He genuinely came to support his brother and let me state that the incident happened over an hour before Shatta Wale come to the event”.   

Both management and family of Stonebwoy have been with Stonebwoy’s and his wife ensuring that everything is fine with her.

Mrs. Satekla had a cut at her back when some criminals cut Stonebwoy’s tent with knife. It happened just when Stonebwoy was about to mount the stage at his own “Ashiaman to the world” concert and she was hurriedly rushed to the hospital. Stonebwoy who was able to entertain thousands of his fans, in spite of the bad news, rushed to see his wife immediately after his memorable performance.

The concert happened on Saturday 30th September in Ashiaman with a huge crowd of bhimnation fans, cheering and dancing to all performances from all artistes who performed on the night.

Stonebwoy confirmed the incident on his Instagram page immediately after the concert saying it was an attack targeted at him ‘attack targeted on me but mistakenly chanced on my wife but I still delivered for my people. #iwillfindem”.

WHY WILL SOMEBODY TRY TO TAKE THE LIFE OF STONEBWOY? – Manager Ask

Management of award winning Dancehall Singer Stonebwoy has spoken after his wife sustained an injury as a result of a knife attack at his concert.

Blakk Cedi, manager of BHiM Nation president, Stonebwoy has broken his silence after the unfortunate incident which happened at the Sakasaka Park on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at this year’s ‘Ashaiman To The World’ concert.

After several reports on the incident hit the Internet, most people blamed the obvious security breach on Stonebwoy’s management but head of Stonebwoy‘s manager thinks it is not necessary to point accusing fingers at this time.

The artist manager real name Mohammed Sidi is not happy about the public blaming Zylofon Media, Stonebwoy’s management and security men who were present at the event for the misfortune.

Blakk Cedi poured his heart out on social media this morning, saying the unfortunate incident is just an accident and not an attack on anybody’s life.

Read Blakk Cedi’s full post below:

“IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT SOME ON SOCIAL MEDIA CHOOSE TO BLAME THE MANAGER, ZYLOFON MEDIA,SECURITY STAFF AND THE TEAM AROUND, BUT I HOPE THAT THEIR ASSERTIONS WILL NOT SOW ANY SEEDS OF DISCORD AMONG US. I FEEL THAT WE HAVE A VERY LOYAL AND SUPPORTIVE STAFF AND I PRAY THAT THE TEAM WILL REMAIN COHESIVE AND THAT NO DISHARMONY WILL STEM FROM WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR QUEEN.
I WANT TO BELIEVE THE INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED AT THE VENUE WAS AN ACCIDENT RATHER THAN SOMEONE TRYING TO ASSASSINATE OR STAB OUR ARTISTE.IT WAS ALL LOVE ON THE NIGHT AND ALL THE NUMBERS WERE PRESENT BECAUSE OF STONEBWOY.
(NOW THE BIG QUESTION IS ,WHY WILL SOMEBODY TRY TO TAKE THE LIFE OF STONEBWOY AT A PLACE WHERE HE’S GOT EVERYBODY THERE TO DEFEND HIM?). SECURITY BREACHES OCCUR EVEN AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND BUCKINGHAM PALACE, SO IT COULD ALSO HAPPEN AT SAKA SAKA PARK.”

The incident happened few minutes before he stepped stage, when an unknown assailant who tried to attack Stonebwoy missed his target and cut Louisa, Stonebwoy‘s wife.

His wife Dr. Louisa Ansong has been hospitalized and currently receiving medical attention.

WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE ABOUT – Zylofon Media Speaks

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.
