Information available to ATV News indicates that Zylofon Media, the record label of gospel sensation Joyce Blessing, has backed out of the much publicized launch of the Joyce Blessing “Help Me Grow” Foundation scheduled to take place today May 15th at the Akropong School for the Blind.
According to Nana Asare Tuffour a member of Joyce’s Management Team, the information was relayed by Arnold Asamoah Baidoo who handles communications for Zylofon Media on Monday afternoon barely 24 hours to the launch to the utter surprise of Joyce and her team. Text messages were sent to some invited media houses Monday evening with no explanation.
Artiste and Repertoire Manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bulldog is reported to have informed Joyce’s team that the budget of GHC 32,000 allocated for the event is too huge. However, the budget in question was said to have been drawn up by Bulldog himself together with Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, Dave Joy(Artiste Manager), Nii Armah(Events Manager) and Julie Jay(Personal Assistant to Joyce) so it is baffling to Joyce and her team why it has suddenly been realized to be too much. Joyce Blessing who is celebrating her birthday today is currently at Akropong School for the Deaf with her team for the launch of her “Help Me Grow” Foundation with no support from her record label. The launch also coincides with the release of her new single titled “Awake”.
It is unclear whether Zylofon Media decided to pull out of the event at the ninth hour after Joyce Blessing released her single ”Awake” with no Zylofon logo or tag on it.
Zylofon Media is yet to comment on this development.
