It is already a year since Dancehall diva Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng known in showbiz as Ebony Reigns passed away. The sad incident occurred on February 8, 2018.
On March 24, 2018, her funeral was held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Ebony was travelling with three other people from Sunyani, two of whom have also died. They were her friends — Frankie Kuri and Atsu Vondee, a soldier. It was the driver of the Jeep that survived the crash.
Her death proved one thing — that she paid her dues the few years that she plied her trade in the music industry.
Within a year, she rose to become the most sought-after female artiste in Ghana. She was unique in her own right and dared to prove her mettle through her uniqueness.
Social media last Friday was filled with several tributes remembering the first ever female to win artist of the year in the nation’s history of music:
Bola Ray via his twitter page said “Rest well queen.”
CEO and former manager of the musician Bullet tweeted “the queen lives on, forever and always.”
Ace broadcaster Abeiku Santana said “rest in peace.”
Boyfriend of the late musician and MC popularly known as Og the MC said “a year ago today by this time was going crazy but uhmmm. Don’t wanna say much just want to know ever u are now we miss you and we love you so much queen.”
Wendy Shay tweeted “Grateful for the time spent with you bony. A happy soul to be around. Continue resting in power #rufftownrecords #HABA.
