Thousands of Ghanaians yesterday joined the family of late dancehall artist, Ebony Reigns, to observe her one-week celebration since her passing
The death of Ebony Reigns, who was born Priscilla Pooku Kwarteng, shook the country and got many in shock.
Family of the music prodigy observed the memorial service in her honour, a week and two days after the unfortunate incident. It was held at St. Martin De Porres School, Dansoman in Accra.
What usually would have been held exactly a week after the incident was postponed and that day, Friday, February 16, 2018 was instead observed as her 21st birthday.
Tributes were poured from all corners from top politicians to musicians and the likes.
While many extolled the deceased for her feat in the music industry in this short period, she equally received a backlash from many over her ‘style’ when she was alive.
Ebony died on 8th February, 2018 along with two others when the Jeep vehicle they were travelling on collided with a VIP bus at Mankraso in the Brong Ahafo Region.
She was signed to Ruff Town Records and Midas Touch Inc.
The late dancehall queen will be buried on March 17, 2018, the family announced yesterday.
The family however, did not disclose the venue for the funeral, which is expected to be a calendar event for her fans and music industry.
But the family assured mourners that the 20-year-old prodigy would be buried in Accra.
Almost all the top artistes, actors and actresses in the country were at the one-week anniversary of Ebony Reigns.
These included Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Ras Kuku, Atom, Kofi Kinata, Obrafuor, Nana Boro, Empress Gifty Osei and Tic Tac.
Other musicians who mourned with late Ebony’s family were Chicago, Bisa Kdei, X-Doe, Choir Master of Praye fame, R2 Bees, Edem, Superintendent Kofi Sarpong among many other musicians and actors and actresses.
