The late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony on stage was totally different from who she was in real life, says her former Manager, Bullet.

During a tribute at the burial service onSaturday, March 24 at the forecourt of the State House, he shared with people present the differences between the artiste and the personality.

“Ebony on stage in the performing arena was different from Ebony off stage. Off stage she was just as committed and ambitious as on stage except that she never mixed her private life with her business life.” stated an emotional Bullet.

“Contrary to the commonly held, widely circulated but unfounded perception that Ebony was wayward, untrained and unreligious bad girl, Ebony was the exact opposite. Ebony was a Christian and indeed worshipped any time she had the opportunity at the Golden Sensor Church in Madina. She was prayerful and had prayer sessions with a number of prophets, pastors and other Christian leaders. Ebony was kind, friendly, respectful, down to earth, and a philanthropist.”

He also spoke about their first meeting and the decision to sign Ebony.

“Ruff Town signing on Ebony was instant. She had the voice and the personality to match and was [the] type of marketable musician any record label will want to sign.” recalled the founder of Ruff Town Records.

“The name Ebony was given to her as a stage name by myself, Bullet and with permission, she added the Reigns so she became Ebony Reigns. Ebony was highly gifted and talented musician…it was not surprising to see her blast through the industry like lightning.”

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.
