The Communications Director for Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, has revealed the details about Stonebwoy’s deal with Universal Music Group (UMG).
Speaking in an interview with Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity Radio’s Showbiz 971 in Sunyani, the Zylofon Music Communications Director said the deal is exclusively for the distribution of the works of Stonebwoy.
He disclosed that the deal was brokered by Zylofon Music.
“In our industry, it is allowed for an artiste can sign with multiple record labels…depending on the roles that the record labels would play. We were able to strike a deal with Universal Music Group for Stonebwoy. The deal is exclusively for distribution. The deal was facilitated by Zylofon Music. It is not true that he has parted ways with Zylofon Music.
“We reached an agreement for them to distribute the works of Stonebwoy on the International market. The relationship with Stonebwoy is still intact. We are still in charge of his recordings, promotions and marketing. His products are owned by Zylofon music,” Arnold explained.
He revealed how distributions still remains a challenge for musicians in the country.
“We have figured out that one of the major problems we have in Ghana is about distribution. The link between production, how a song or an album would reach consumers still remains a challenge. Penetrating into the international market has always been a bigger problem,” he pointed out.
Arnold said it is the dream of Zylofon Music to project their entire artiste on the International market.
