Ricky Nana Agyemang (Bullet), Chief Executive Officer of RuffTown Records, is asking Samuel Atuobi Baah (Sammy Flex) to apologise for some “disrespectful” comments he made towards the label.Sammy Flex on Monday stated on his show, ‘Showbiz Agenda’ that Bullet would have benefitted immensely had Zylofon Media penned a deal with Ebony Reigns who until her demise was signed on to RuffTown Records.
According to Sammy Flex, Zylofon Media would have paid Bullet $100,000, an amount to bail out Ebony and that would have been a breakthrough for Bullet.
“I can say with authority that if this deal had gone through, the money Bullet would have made, if he even worked with Ebony for 20 years, that money, he would not have it in bulk like that” he said.
Pissed by the remarks, Bullet in an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM’s Drive Time, Monday, expressed displeasure and called on Sammy Flex to render an unqualified apology to him and the label as a whole.
As monitored by Abrantepa.com, Bullet noted that Ebony was not in bondage at RuffTown Records and even if she were, $100,000 was a peanut.
“What are you talking about? Are you God? Do you know how much money we have? And can that money even save Ebony? Can that money bring her back? You don’t disrespect people like that! We’ve worked hard but… I don’t have a problem with anybody but for you to say Bullet cannot make $100,000 even in 20 years with Ebony… Do you know how much was involved in the Kasapreko Choco Malt deal?
“She was to be unveiled in March. It’s disrespect to RuffTown Records, Midas Touch… How can you pay Ebony Reigns $100,000? Is she that cheap? A queen? I need him to correct that on his platform,” he fumed with rage.
“Ebony was not in bondage. She was an artiste who I can say was even dictating to management. She wasn’t under any strict management. Contracts have clauses in them but if she wanted a bail out, due to the relationship that existed between us, it wouldn’t have been a big deal. Perhaps someone tried to persuade her with an amount.
“The amount invested in Ebony was even more than $100,000. How much is $100,000? Is Ebony worth $100,000? The biggest artiste in Ghana now; her bail out is $100,000? $100,000 is the price of Gadoe’s watch. That is not money. To respect her value as an artiste, you shouldn’t even mention $100,000. I don’t get it. Bail out in which way?” he queried.
Ebony, real name Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, was returning from Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region when the Jeep she was travelling in crashed into a VIP bus on Thursday evening, according to police.
Ebony was travelling with three other people, and two of them have also been confirmed dead. The two include a young lady, Ebony’s assistant, and a man in military uniform believed to be a soldier.
She recorded hit songs like ‘Dancefloor,’ ‘Kupe,’ ‘Hustle,’ ‘Maame Hwe,’ ‘Date Ur Fada’ and ‘Poison’ under RuffTown Records.
