Entertainment company, Zylofon Media has disassociated itself from the organization of this year’s Ghana Movie Awards.
The event which has opened nominations for entries for this year’s event has had numerous questions about who is actually organising it since Zylofon Media announced some months back that they have acquired the franchise from its original owner, Fred Nuamah. Zylofon Media in a press statement forwarded to zionfelix.net early Thursday, November 15, 2018, has said it knows nothing about this year’s organization.
The statement signed by Samuel Atuobi Baah, Communications Director at the Nana Appiah Mensah-owned company stated clearly that it is not against this year’s awards. The outfit continued to say that it will start new film awards named Zylofon Films Awards.
Read the unedited press statement `ionfelix.net received from Zylofon Media below:
“DISCLAIMER The general public, the media and stakeholders in the movie industry should be notified that as much as Zylofon Media has every right to organize what we know as the Ghana Movie Awards, this year`s organization does not involve officials or management of Zylofon Media. Since our organization (Zylofon Media) started the partnership with our strategic partners of the scheme in 2016, there were plans to organize it in subsequent years but due to our organizational agenda and timing, we intend to consider doing it next year which fits well in our plans and activities.
That notwithstanding, the initial franchise owners see the need to organize their own event. This move Zylofon Media is not against. However, we wish to state emphatically that we have no contribution to the organization of this year`s (2018) event. We are not involved financially.
We are not providing logistics, neither are we part of planning of the event. Therefore, the general public should disregard any involvement or attachment of our brand to the news making rounds that Zylofon Media is part of the organization. In due time, we will communicate our calendar to the media, the general public and stakeholders in the movie industry as regards the organization of our film awards to be known as ZYLOFON FILMS AWARDS We wish them well in all their endeavors as they embark on this journey.
Signed Sammy Flex
Communications Director: Zylofon Media”
