The attention of Zylofon Music has been drawn to a Facebook post by Willi Roi, A&R for Artiste Development – on Livingstone Etse Satekla (Stonebwoy), which seems to prejudice an ethnic group.
Zylofon Music, a label under Zylofon Media Limited, disassociates itself from the flippant commentary from its Executive, noting that the unfortunate post does not in any way reflect the position of the label.
Stonebwoy is a Zylofon Music –recording artiste and must be accorded the same level of respect shown to all the other acts signed to the label.
Zylofon Music promotes unity, progression and peaceful co-existence in the elevation of Ghanaian music and its purveyors, and frowns on any form of discrimination, racial hatred, ethnic or inter-ethnic hatred.
