The CEO of Slip Music, made the comments on Joy FM adding that he barely understand why there is so much fuss about Zylofon.

“One question we must ask is. Have we grown them? If we haven’t, I think we should be having answers to some of these things instead of every time causing sensation by splashing cash here and there,” he said.

“Take someone like Becca, she deserves to be on top, but look at her now. She’s rather fighting to stay relevant in the music industry. Can you tell me any hit song from one Zylofon artiste since they started putting them on contract?” he queried.
