Zylofon Media disassociates itself from Ghana Movie Awards 2018


Media conglomerate company, Zylofon Media has released a disclaimer disassociating itself from this year’s edition of the Ghana Movie Awards.
Many have been left wondering who the organizers of this year’s awards scheme is, as the event has opened its entries since Zylofon Media announced barely a year that it has bought the franchise from the rightful owner Fred Nuamah.
However, a press release sighted by this news portal on Thursday [November, 15, 2018] endorsed by Samuel Atuobi Baah, Communication Director of the firm, stated unequivocally that it has no hands in this year’s awards due to undisclosed reasons.
Regardless, the statement said it’s not against the celebration of our movie industry players this year but was quick to add the East Legon based entertainment company will start a new award scheme dubbed Zylofon Films Awards next year.
Read Full Press Statement 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”
