Gyan: Leave me out of Stonebwoy, Zylofon fracas
Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan has denied he is involved in the fracas between dancehall artiste Stonebwoy and his record label Zylofon Media.
There is an ongoing rift between the award-winning dancehall artiste and Zylofon media with rumours that Stonebwoy will soon terminate his contract with them for disrespecting him following the signing of his musical rival Shatta Wale.
Some media reports have suggested that Gyan, who doubles as a musician, is likely to sign Stonebwoy or even pay off his bailout.
However, the former Sunderland striker described such reports as “fake news” and called on the publishers to retract and apologise.
A statement to that effect from the office of Gyan read: “The management of Mr Asamoah Gyan’s office have read the false or fake news which places Mr Gyan into the stonebwoy and Zylofon Media “fracas”. We want to state emphatically that Mr Asamoah Gyan has a very good personal and working relationship with stonebwoy and Mr Nana Appiah the CEO of Zylofon Media.
“Mr Asamoah Gyan is interested in keeping same positively strong and ongoing. We are asking the publishers to retract and withdraw the fake news from circulation immediately.
“Mr Asamoah Gyan hasn’t been approached by any representation from stonebwoy nor does he want to engage in controversy (if any) between the said artiste and Zylofon Media.
“We have drawn our legal team’s attention to this fake news and palpable untruth. Effective today, we are advising the publishers to desist from circulating this falsehood and to retract and apologise to Mr Asamoah Gyan immediately. We need good press and information on and about the public spirited and selfless works Mr Asamoah Gyan continues to undertake or perform for our country Mother Ghana.
Meanwhile, Stonebwoy has released a song featuring Gyan titled Dirty Enemies.
