Late dancehall artiste, Ebony who made history by winning the ‘Artiste of the Year’ at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards is obviously holding on to her position in 2019 and still counting.
Ebony was the first female to win the award and the first to win the award posthumously. Her continuous enjoyment of the slot comes after Organizers of the awards scheme announced Most Popular Song of the Year and Artiste of the Year of the 2019 edition were annulled.
Board for the prestigious awards announced that winners for the artiste of the year and most popular songs which were not announced on the night of the awards will never be made known due to the fracas which happened on May 18.
Chairman for the VGMAs board, Amandzeba Nat Brew speaking at a press conference said both categories have been nullified.
This tells the 2019 award ceremony has no artiste off he year and most popular song winner.
Ebony died in a car crash on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway after visiting her mother on February 8, 2018, together with her friend, Franky Kuri and a bodyguard, Francis Vondee at age 20. Although Ebony was 20 years, her popularity and fame stood tall than her age.
Ebony is credited with hit songs such as ‘Kupe’, ‘Poison’, ‘Sponsor’, ‘Date your father’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Maame Hw3’, and ‘Aseda.’ She was laid to rest on March 24, 2018, at the Osu Cemetery.
