Reggae and Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has expressed his support for embattled CEO of Zylofon Media and Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known in showbiz circles as NAM1.
In an interview with Nana Adwoa Sarkodie of Citi TV, the artiste confirmed that his contract with Zylofon Music had expired but said his support and best wishes still remained with NAM 1.
“Wherever he is, however it is, he knows I am a soldier and I am right behind him for who he is as a person; a kind-hearted person with a great heart,” he said.
Stonebwoy also spoke about rumours that Zylofon Media had collapsed because of the Menzgold saga.
“I can’t say that Zylofon Music or Zylofon Media is no more because I don’t think that there is any official letter or news by Zylofon Media that says we are closing or shutting down,” he said.
He expressed gratitude to Nana Appiah Mensah for supporting the creative sector.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity that once came for me to meet Nana Appiah Mensah to even enter into that agreement as a dream of his to push the industry and own a brand that will support creative arts in Ghana,” Stonebwoy noted.
Menzgold was asked to stop operation following in a directive from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
It stated that the gold dealership firm did not have the licence to operate.
In the wake of this, Menzgold customers have asked the government to find ways of retrieving their monies for them.
Currently, Nana Appiah Mensah is not in Ghana and a court has issued an arrest warrant for him.
Meanwhile, he is facing a misdemeanour charge over a US$23 million deal gone bad in Dubai.
