Father of the late Ebony Reigns has revealed that his daughter was verbally abused on several occasions by her manager, Bullet.
According to Nana Opoku Kwarteng, his daughter was not a happy girl before she died. He added that Ebony was also not happy with her management due to how poorly they handled her.
Mr. Kwarteng stated that even though her daughter told her about the predicament she found herself in, he couldn’t really do much to free her from the shackles of Rufftown Records because Ebony was bound to a contract.
“She told me about the abuse severally. She was not happy with her management led by Bullet; she complained bitterly about her situation. As a father who so much loved his daughter, that hurt me. I was always praying for her to get out of that situation but there was a contract she’d signed, so she needed to abide by that, she had no option,” he told Peace FM.
I just kept my cool about what she was going through,” he narrated. After the unfortunate demise of Ebony Reigns on February 8 in an accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway, rumours emerged that the artiste was actually bent on parting ways with her record label that discovered and made her a star, days before her death.
Also, the boss of the wealthy media organization Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah, disclosed that Ebony prior to her demise, asked him to pay Bullet off so she could join Zylofon Media and be free.
The late dancehall musician, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, with stage name Ebony Reigns, was on Saturday, April 14, 2018 crowned Vodafone Ghana Music Awards artiste of the year 2018.
