CEO of RuffTown Records and manager of the late singing sensation Ebony, Bullet, has hit back at Zylofon Media boss Nana Appiah Mensah and his Public Relations Officer Sammy Flex over comments the duo have passed surrounding the death of his artist.
According to Bullet, Nana Appiah Mensah’s assertion that he planned to pay RuffTown $100,000 to snatch Ebony from them was disrespectful to the late singer who had become the biggest star in Ghana.
He also took offence at Sammy Flex, who had gone on air in an attempt to clarify his boss’ statement and said that the money Bullet would have made from that deal would be more than he would make in 20 years working for Ebony.
“I can say with authority that if this deal had gone through, the money Bullet would have made, if he even worked with Ebony for 20 years, that money, he would not have it in bulk like that.” Flex asserted.
However, responding to both those claims, an angry Bullet said what the two are saying is simply rubbish.
“What are you talking about? Are you God? Do you know how much money we have? And can that money even save Ebony? Can that money bring her back? You don’t disrespect people like that! We’ve worked hard but… I don’t have a problem with anybody but for you to say Bullet cannot make $100,000 even in 20 years with Ebony… Do you know how much was involved in the Kasapreko Choco Malt deal?” he responded to Sammy Flex.
“She was to be unveiled in March. It’s disrespect to RuffTown Records, Midas Touch… How can you pay Ebony Reigns $100,000? Is she that cheap? A queen? I need him to correct that on his platform.
“Ebony was not in bondage. She was an artiste who I can say was even dictating to management. She wasn’t under any strict management. Contracts have clauses in them but if she wanted a bail out, due to the relationship that existed between us, it wouldn’t have been a big deal. Perhaps someone tried to persuade her with an amount.
“The amount invested in Ebony was even more than $100,000. How much is $100,000? Is Ebony worth $100,000? The biggest artiste in Ghana now; her bail out is $100,000? $100,000 is the price of Gadoe’s watch. That is not money. To respect her value as an artiste, you shouldn’t even mention $100,000. I don’t get it. Bail out in which way?” he added.
