Wendy Shay “could be greater” than my daughter – Ebony’s father

Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony says that Rufftown Records act, Wendy Shay “could be greater” than his late daughter.

Many people have compared Shay to the late ‘Sponsor’ artiste arguing that she is a replica – a statement herself and label have denied many times.

Speaking with TV3, Kwarteng argued that “no one can replace” his “unique” daughter and then stated that Shay “could be greater.”

“Ohemaa is unique. She is in her own world and class. No one can replace her. Maybe, Wendy Shay could be greater…”stated Mr. Kwarteng

Shay has two hits ‘Uber Driver’ and ‘Bedroom Commando’ to her credit.

12 People die on road Ebony had accident on

Some 12 people are said to have died in an accident on the Kumasi-Sunyani highway in the Ashanti region.

A starrfmonline.com report states that the accident occurred between a ford minibus registered AS 7257-15 and a Benz cargo truck with registration number GR 2624-14 heading to Dormaa Ahenkro from Kumasi.

The two vehicles had a head-on collision leading to the death of the passengers mostly in the ford vehicle. The driver of the ford also died in the crash.

The midnight incident happened few kilometers from the spot where dancehall artist Ebony lost her life.

 

Ebony died after she was involved in a gory accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani.

Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

Her funeral service was held at the forecourt of the State House. She was later buried at the Osu cemetery on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

Late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony took home at the ultimate at the 2018 Ghana Music Awards.

She won ‘Artiste of the Year’ and two other awards – ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Afro Pop sonng of the Year.’ She made history by becoming the first female and dead artiste to win the ultimate.

Her award was received on her behalf by her former manager, and parents.

Rewarding the Dead is needless – Vicky Zugah

Ghanaian actress Vicky Zugar has expressed her disappointment in the organisers of the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for rewarding the late Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng  popularly called Ebony after her death.

According to her the late Ebony was a good musician without any doubts but rewarding her after her death is needless.

Speaking on SVTV AFrica , Vicky said organisers of awards must learn to appreciate the living rather than appreciating the dead since the living need more encouragement to excel.

AUDIO: Bullet told me managing “stubborn” Ebony was difficult – Father

Father of late Dancehall Musician, Ebony Reign, Nana Opoku Kwarteng has revealed that her late daughter’s manager, Bullet complained to him on several occasions about how difficult it was to handle the award winning artiste.

According to him, though that could be the case, he expected Bullet and the management team to efficiently discharge their duties to ensure that all was well with Ebony at all times.

“There’s nothing all rosy, all good in this world, stars are very difficult to handle but as a manger you should make sure all is well with your artiste. Honestly Bullet had complained severally that managing Ebony was tough. He himself told me about some female artistes in America who are stars and are very difficult to manage, that means he understood the job he was doing as a manager. If you know this particular thing will fill the car then you buy exactly that, so he should have known that Ebony was stubborn, stars are stubborn, it has always been the case and he knew that. So he had to change the plan, if plan A was not working why didn’t he change to plan B to plan C, that is management. So I had expected this guy to do some more. That time that Nana Hemaa (Ebony) sat in the car to travel was not worth it, as a serious management you couldn’t have allowed that.” he said on Peace FM.

Nana Opoku Kwarteng, accused Ebony’s management team of negligence leading to her death in the gory accident that claimed her life.

He said their failure to monitor her movement was a clear dereliction of duty as they should have known her location and itinerary at every point in time and should have stopped her from embarking on that journey.

Ebony died after she was involved in an accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 around 11pm  when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani, where she’d gone to see her mother who had returned from abroad.

Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

AUDIO: Ebony’s management caused her death – Father

Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of the late Dancehall musician Ebony Reigns, has accused his daughter’s management team of negligence leading to her death in the gory accident that claimed her life.

According to him, Ebony management team’s failure to monitor her movement was a clear dereliction of duty as they should have known her location and itinerary at every point in time and should have stopped her from embarking on that journey.

Ebony died after she was involved in an accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 around 11pm  when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani, where she’d gone to see her mother who had returned from abroad.

Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

Ebony reportedly traveled without the consent of her management team.

But her father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng in an interview on Peace FM said though he’s grateful to Ebony’s management for unearthing her talent and making her a star, they woefully failed in doing a good job, adding that his daughter had no right to make that trip without permission from her management.

“Nana Hemaa (Ebony) traveled very late in the night when Bullet (her manager) was abroad, according to him. A good management team handling a 21 year old super star should have taken good care of her. Somebody should have been with her on that journey, somebody should have corrected her as she shouldn’t have made that journey on her own. That is proper management, Ghanaians take things too easy. There’s more to the word management, I’m not being ungrateful but management should not be only about the music aspect of the artiste.

“When you’re managing someone, the person’s movement and all that concerns her is your concern. You don’t care the strength of that person, you take the decision for the person that’s why you are the manager. You’ve taken her from nowhere and you made her a star, if you’re her manager then your concern couldn’t have been only the music aspect. As a father I did my bit, I expected management to do their part. The bit about my daughter embarking on that journey, means someone failed woefully in doing his job, she didn’t have that right to say she was traveling to visit her mother without any management member knowing or accompanying her. Management should have arranged that journey and make sure she was safe.”

Ebony was severally abused by Bullet – Father reveals

Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of the late dancehall musician Ebony Reigns has revealed that his daughter was verbally abused on several occasions by her manager, Bullet of Rufftown Records.

According to him, Ebony at the latter part of her music career was not the least happy with her management due to how poorly they handled her.

There were reports that the young award winning artiste was actually bent on parting ways with the record label that discovered and made her a star days before her death.

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.

He disclosed this in a tweet eulogizing the artiste who lost her life through a gory accident yesterday.

Nana Appiah Mensah’s tweet said “We had a fruitful meeting and reached an Agreement just last Tuesday. “Please help me pay him for my bail out. I want to be free”. I hope you’re free now & finds absolute peace in the bosom of the almighty God. Let’s pay CRITICAL ATTENTION to our female artists”.

Ebony’s father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng in an interview on Peace FM Saturday said even though her daughter told her about the predicament she found herself, worried as he was, 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. I just kept my cool about what she was going through.”

Ebony lost her life when her car was involved in a head-on collision with a bus while travelling from the Brong Ahafo region to the Greater Accra region where she was expected to travel to Belgium to perform at the Belgium edition of Ghana Meets Naija.

Nothing SPIRITUAL about Ebony’s black coffin – Father

According to the renowned preacher, he had paid for a different coffin that had been chosen by Ebony’s parent days before her funeral, only to see the all black casket, a type he says he’s never seen in his life before, but said he couldn’t have determined which coffin to be bought because he wasn’t a family member and that he offered to pay for it out of the love he had for Ebony.

He nonetheless disclosed that he wasn’t the least happy with the black casket adding that the latter’s father informed him only hours to the funeral ceremony that he’d chosen a different coffin from what he (Rev Tetteh) had earlier seen and paid for.

But speaking on Peace FM Saturday, Nana Opoku Kwarteng explained that he settled on that coffin because Ebony was exceptional and her coffin also had to be unique.

“Her funeral, apart myself and Ebony’s mother, everyone else was in black, it was good to see black all over the place and that coffin was also black with the design was first of its kind. And because Ebony was a queen and due to how she suddenly got into the lime light and became a star she needed something different and special to carry her mortal remains, so that informed my very decision on that.”

Asked by the host if there was no spiritual connection to the coffin, Nana Opoku Kwarteng responded, “I will not take that, how could that be…what for? I’m not into it, I couldn’t be in it, no way. She needed all the attention because she was exceptional, we did certain things, we broke protocol to advance to the next level and it worked.”

Ebony died after she was involved in a gory accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani.

Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

AUDIO: Ebony’s BLACK COFFIN shocked me – Rev. Lawrence Tetteh

Rev. Dr Lawrence Tetteh, founder of UK-based World Miracle Outreach who led the late musician Ebony Reigns to Christ days before her death, has revealed that he was utterly stunned when he saw the black coffin that carried the late artiste’s remains at her funeral ceremony last Saturday.

According to the renowned preacher, he had paid for a different coffin that had been chosen by Ebony’s parent days before her funeral, only to see the all black casket, a type he says he’s never seen in his life before.

Tongues were set wagging over the weekend on social media as people read all sorts of meanings into the ‘rare’ black glass casket which had the letter S designed on top of it.

A section of the public speculated that the type of coffin Ebony’s father chose confirmed his alleged involvement in occultism. Others also slammed Rev. Dr Lawrence Tetteh for looking on for such a ‘strange’ coffin to be used in carrying the remains of her daughter in Christ.

But speaking on Adom TV Monday, the International Evangelist stated that he couldn’t have determined which coffin to be bought because he wasn’t a family member and that he offered to pay for it out of the love he had for Ebony.

He nonetheless disclosed that he wasn’t the least happy with the black casket adding that the latter’s father informed him only hours to the funeral ceremony that he’d chosen a different coffin from what he (Rev Tetteh) had earlier seen and paid for.

“I had gone with Bishop Quaye and a woman by name Julie and Ebony’s parents to buy the coffin. I told Ebony’s parents to choose the coffin they wanted for me to pay because she was their child and I couldn’t decide for them. What I paid for was not what was used in burying her. On the day of the funeral, Ebony’s father called and told me that, on the evening they were going for her body, he saw another coffin which looked nice and so he settled on that one rather and that it was the same price as the one he’d earlier picked. I didn’t see the coffin until the funeral event as I was not around when they went for the body. I must be honest with you, I wasn’t happy when I saw that coffin.

He added: “I’m over 50 years but I’ve never seen a black coffin in my life. What I’m saying is that, I and my team saw that black coffin only when we got to the funeral grounds. So I asked Ebony’s father about it and he said he found the black one nicer than what I’d seen earlier and that I told him to make a choice and that’s exactly what he’s done. He’s the father and so he had the right to make certain decisions. Personally, I don’t judge people because nobody knows the secret places of our hearts.”

The preacher and the late musician met at the Hungarian Embassy in Accra two days before she died.

Ebony died after she was involved in a gory accident on the Kumasi–Sunyani road on February 8, 2018 when she was returning to Accra from Sunyani.

Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.
