Ghanaians are ‘mad’ at Nana Appiah Mensah, CEO of Zylofon Media following a particular tweet about the late Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng known as Ebony in our showbiz industry.
On February 10, 2018, the CEO took to social media particularly Twitter and Instagram and in an attempt to pen down a heartfelt message of condolence to the bereaved rather aroused emotions.
Nana Appiah Mensah in the tweet in question revealed that he had a secret meeting with Ebony before her demise when she told him to ‘bail her out‘. The ‘bail out’ in Nana Appiah’s tweet has caused a serious confusion taking into consideration the brouhaha that was emerging from the camp of Ebony and her management.
He said, “We had a fruitful meeting and reached an Agreement just last Tuesday. “Please help me pay him for my bail out. I want to be free”. I hope you’re free now & finds absolute peace in the bosom of the almighty God. Let’s pay CRITICAL ATTENTION to our female artists.#RIPEbony”.
As a result of the emerging controversies surrounding the above tweet, Zylofon Media’s Public Relations Officer, Samuel Atoobi Baah has said that the of CEO of Zylofon Media has been misconstrued.
According to him, “the interpretations being put out by many industry people are now disturbing and worrying, to say the least”. The statement indicated that he will clarify the tweet in a radio interview scheduled for Monday at Zylofon FM.
