Schoolmates share lovely SHS moment of Ebony (photos)

School and classmates of Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, known in showbiz circles as Ebony Reigns, have fondly remembered her after her demise on Thursday.

Her colleagues from Methodist Girls High School at Mamfe in the Akuapim North District of the Eastern Region, joined other sympathizers to mourn with her family Friday morning.

Some of them took to their social media handles to share pictures of the times they shared with her during their school days.

One of them who spoke to Joy News’ Maxwell Agbagba remembered her for her determination and friendliness.

Ebony from her Senior High School (SHS) days had the knack for music and took the least opportunity to share her talent with her mates.

Many including her class teacher told Joy News they were not surprised when she quit school to pursue a music career.

The Sponsor and Kupe hitmaker has been riding the music waves since her bold entrance onto the scene in 2015 until her unfortunate passing on Thursday.

In other reports, Ebony who would have turned 21 on February 16, was set to fly out of Ghana to the US on Friday, February 9 for a show but death denied her that move.

Meanwhile, the Founder and Leader and General Overseer of the Glorious Word Ministries International, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has revealed that she told controversial songstress, Ebony Reigns that she had a short life on earth and that she should get closer to God before she dies.

Ebony’s manager release last Whatsapp chats of Ebony and how they contacted some prophet for help

Apparently, singer Ebony was by herself very afraid of dying.

When news broke that Ebony died, many people said if only she had paid heed to advice and warnings from some men of God, perhaps, she could have been saved.

However, it appears Ebony did the little she could…she was advised by a prophet to do a gospel music and promote it, which she did as a way of appeasing God of His anger against her.

The title of the gospel song is, Aseda.

Ebony and Manager

Her manager also stated that producer Kaywa did his best to offer some special prayers for Ebony but still…death refused to be bribed…so ‘he’ (death) did the worst he always does.

More so, they had plan donating to an orphanage somewhere around UCC.

It clearly shows that Ebony was afraid, perhaps, she together with her management knew of the impending death.

Additionally, if rumors are pointing to the fact that Ebony consulted black powers for fame, then, her management have a fair idea of everything. Talk of even Ebony going there prior to their advice.

The reason is, why fear death when you know honestly, that you’ve done nothing wrong of the death you’re afraid of?

See the chats below:

Bullet (Ebony’s manager) posted:

“I have seen videos and heard audios of some people and prophets after the death of my girl ebony.can people have a little heart and stop judging her.kaywa saw this long time and did a lot of directions and prayers for us.i have chats with prophets who also saw this coming.we did what we could but God knows best!”

Ebony and 4 other Ghana entertainers who died through accident

Ghana was painted with a very sad news yesterday prior to the death of Dancehall musician, Ebony Reigns.

We have been all shaken to the bones as we least expect Ebony to ‘go’ by this time even though death is inevitable.

The fact that her death came through road accident has got us to remember our top entertainers who also died in time past through accident—at a very young age.

Below is a list of 4 Ghanaian entertainers who died through road accident.

  1. Terry Bonchaka

Music lovers were thrown into shock when “poulele” hitmaker Terry Bonchaka passed on in October 2003 through a car accident.

Terry Bonchaka was then the new kid on the block and took the entire country by surprise with his iconic old school dressing and famous dance move “poulele”.

Unfortunately, Ghana lost Terry to road accident and cut short the life of an otherwise great entertainer who would have put Ghana on the global entertainment map.

2. Suzzy Williams

Two years later, Suzzy Williams died at age 23, one of the best movie stars to have graced the screens.

She had barely reached the high point of her career as an actress when she died. Suzzy just like Ebony, was full of life and lived her life despite heavy criticisms But death laid its icy hands on her when she got involved in yet another motor accident on the La-Teshie Nungua road.

3. Kwame Owusu Ansah

Again, Ghana lost another Whoopi Goldberg to needless road accident.

On May 2, 2008, another actor Kwame Owusu Ansah died in a fatal car accident on a road many people will not be surprised, the Tema motorway. Doctors had worked around the clock to save Kwame’s life but Kwame had lost too much blood.

It was not in doubt that Kwame did a lot of collaboration with Nigerian actors and if his love for acting away from home is anything to go by, he probably will be competing with Idris Elba for the next James Bond. But no, because of a negligent cargo driver who was being chased by the police, Kwame perished.

4. Vybrant Faya

For many fans of the “mampe hitmaker”, Vybrant Faya and recently Ike Yeboah, Amakye Dede’s Manager, all of who died through road accident, the entertainment industry would be benefiting from their rich artistic ideas and showmanship.

Ebony’s death has called into question the need for artiste to be managed professionally, especially with regard to travelling in the light of the dangers on Ghana’s roads, not only to public figures but to every Ghanaian.

Ebony Reigns, like her name suggest, may be reigning indeed on a sad note but just like a colleague reporter Mercydalyne Lokko puts it, strangely for most of these artiste who die in their prime, they may perhaps have known but for how long must we sit down accidents which are preventable to take the lives of Ghanaians.

‘Ebony Was A Burden To Society’ — Insensitive Counsellor George Lutterodt Says

As Ghanians are yet to come to reality concerning the untimely death of Ghana’s best Dancehall artiste Ebony, self-styled Counsellor George Lutterodt has callously started with his famed gibberish utterances.

When he was asked to react to the news of the death on Joy Prime’s ‘The Red Carpet’, Mr Lutterodt said the late singer was a burden to society when she was alive due to the her youthful exuberance.

The popular counsellor suggested that anyone raised in a single home is a burden to society because they do not get the requisite training they need from both parents.

He said:

If you’re raised by a single parent you become a burden to society.

What kind of counsellor is this?
