The Volta regional Chairman of the Musicians Union of Ghana MUSIGA, Mr. Anthony Dagbe has indicated that the regional chapter of the union will be meeting in the coming days to decide on how to reach out to the family of late dancehall diva, Ebony Reigns.
Tony D, as he is known in showbiz circles was eulogising the dancehall artiste whose life was cut short in a motor accident together with two other friends on the Sunyani-Accra road in the night of February 8, 2018, when returning from a visit to her UK-based mum on the late afternoon show, Global Drive with Bright Ellis on Global105.1FM.
“Definitely our national executive is mobilizing us so that we can go and commiserate with the bereaved families, listen to their plans and factor it into that of the Union and support the funeral in order to make it one”, Tony D disclosed.
The regional MUSIGA boss who described the sudden death of the 90’s bad girl as a big blow to the music industry also said even though the news just came in this morning, Volta MUSIGA had begun mobilizing its members to take a decision on what to do.
“Yes the news just came in today so we are meeting… we are also mobilizing our regional members to see how we can also commiserate with them. That is the current situation… we are really hot now”, he concluded.
Tony D also called on fans of Ebony and other music lovers not to be carried away by her demise and feel there is consolation in the consumption of alcohol and other hard drugs and go for them in mourning her, but to rather pray for her soul.
Born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, the reign of Ebony Reigns on the music scene had been on a rapid rise, having been nominated in this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards- VGMAs in the “Artiste of the Year” category, after getting a nomination in the “Unsung Artiste of the Year” category in 2016.
Maybe, just maybe, a little bird had whispered into the adorable ears of the “Maame Hye” hitmaker that she wasn’t going to last long on the music scene so that she had to work so hard to make the desired impact on Ghanaian music within the spate of under three years.
Probably, she did that.
