Fire stupid and hungry Willi Roi – Chris-Vincent advises Zylofon Media

Lawyer cum entertainment blogger, Chris Vincent Agyapong, has adviced Zylofon Media to fire Willi Roi, who is the head of Zylofon Arts Club over comments he made on Facebook.

According to him, Willi Roi as a “Grown ass up, obviously stupid and hungry” is fueling an unnecessary tribalism conflict.

He maintained that discerning Ghanaians who hate tribalism will boycott Zylofon products, services or activities.

“That is what is done in a civilised world” he said.

Willi Roi on his Facebook page posted “while Stone is busy playing cheap gigs for his pocket Shatta is shooting multimillion videos look sharp!! Ewe Eagle.”

The post infuriated Chris-Vincent to campaign for his sack, “can someone get this douchebag some common sense? Ewe What? What has Stonebwoy being Ewe got to do with anything?”.

He continued that there is a clear distinction between having money and being enlightened.

“Any employer who continues to keep this dim-wit as an employee either agrees with his unending absurd rhetorics about their artistes or has lost control. Zylofon, fix this shit once by firing this useless man” he noted.

Meanwhile, Zylofon Media has disassociated itself from Willi Roi’s unethical Facebook comments about Stonebwoy.

In a statement signed by Director of Communications at Zylofon Music, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo stated: “The attention of Zylofon Music has been drawn to a Facebook post by Willi Roi, A&R for Artiste Development - on Livingstone Etse Satekla (Stonebwoy), which seems to prejudice an ethnic group.”

“Zylofon Music, a label under Zylofon Media Limited, disassociates itself from the flippant commentary from its Executive, noting that the unfortunate post does not in any way reflect the position of the label. Stonebwoy is a Zylofon Music –recording artiste and must be accorded the same level of respect shown to all the other acts signed to the label” the statement noted.

It added “Zylofon Music promotes unity, progression and peaceful co-existence in the elevation of Ghanaian music and its purveyors, and frowns on any form of discrimination, racial hatred, ethnic or inter-ethnic hatred.”
