Kumi Guitar has denied ever insulting dancehall act, Stonebwoy in his “Gyae” song which was released in March this year.
According to him, he only wanted to advice Stonebwoy to desist from dictating to people at the Zylofon Media company.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Kumi said Stonebwoy told him to stay back when he made an attempt to approach him after he released the song at the 2018 ‘3 Music Awards’.

“I think we met at 3 Music Awards and me, knowing I said nothing wrong, tried to approach him. I wanted to know his side and explain things to him. I saw Cedi (Stonebwoy’s manager) and noticed Stonebwoy was by his car talking to someone. He told me not to get close that I am not his friend [sic]. That was just us. Imagine if I wanted to meet him in a more public space. I wasn’t feeling too cool,” he disclosed.
Asked if offered a word of apology to him, he said: “I didn’t apologise cos I did nothing wrong. I noticed it wasn’t a good time. He wasn’t in the mood; not to even talk. He told me not to pretend so I returned.

He later explained how they smoked the peace pipe in Kumasi during a visit to Asantehene, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II by Zylofon Media.
“The next we met again was at the Manhyia palace’s Akwasidae ceremony. When he was greeting courtesy meant he greeted me and we shook hands to make peace,” he said to Andy Dosty.
“The company (Zylofon Media) called me and cautioned me because it [the song] wasn’t released on the ticket of the company. They pardoned me because the content wasn’t insulting. They never told me the consequences though should it happen another time,” Kumi added.

Kumi Guitar who was the first artiste to be signed by Zylofon Media, advised Stonebwoy in March to refrain from dragging the name of the Media brand, Zylofon through the mud after he allegedly ordered some Legon students to pull down Zylofon’s paraphernalia as a precondition to him performing at the event.
Gunshots were also fired by Stonebwoy at the Paloma Hotel in Accra that same month as artiste manager, Bulldog allegedly attacked Stonebwoy and his crew who were holding a mini concert at the hotel.
According to reports, Bulldog and Zylofon’s Transport Manager, Mr Eric Amponsah attempted to forcefully recover a Zylofon-branded car being used by Stonebwoy hence the confusion.
