The final funeral rites of famed Ghanaian singer Ebony Reigns, will not be held at the Back Star Square on March 17, as originally planned.
This is due to a clash with other organisations, according to radio host Abeiku Santana, who’s also a close friend of Ebony’s family. The funeral service will now be held on Saturday March 24 at the forecourt of the State House.
The country’s most prominent rising star in the past couple of years, the singer (born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng), is expected to dominate the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards night slated for April.
Among the singer’s known offerings are Poison, Hustle, Da Ur Fada, and Maame Hw3. Her debut album, BONYFIED, was released in December last year.
Ebony met her untimely death on Thursday February 8, when the jeep she was traveling in, slammed into an oncoming VIP bus. The accident, which happened on the Kumasi – Sunyani road, also led to the death of a military officer identified as Francis Atsu Vondee and personal assistant Frankie Kuri, who were also onboard the Jeep.
