Family Commemorates One Week of Ebony’s Death in Accra Today

One-week remebrance service for the late Dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns, comes off today, Sunday, February 18, at the St. Martin De Porres School in Dansoman, Accra.

The family is expected to announce the dates for the final funeral rites for the rising star who lost her life in a fatal road accident last Thursday on the Sunyani-Kumasi road.

Ebony’s death shook the country with tributes continually pouring in not only from the entertainment industry players but from politicians including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the academia.

Some of her colleagues have also released tribute songs for her.

Born on February 16, 1997, Ebony named Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, turned 21 last Friday.

In the two years that she spent in the music industry, she garnered a lot of fans with back to back hits like Kupe, Sponsor, Date Your Father, Hustler and Maame Hwe.

Meanwhile, the family of the 27 year-old Francisca Maame Yaa Teboa Nkansah aka Franky Kuri who died together with Ebony in the car accident, has announced the date for her burial.

In an interview, the family said the body will be interred on March 3, 2018.

Franky, before her visit to Ghana recently, was resident in Clarksville Tennessee in the United States of America.

A US-based reporter who spoke to a private TV station in Accra said, Franky’s family members in the US will be coming to Ghana for the funeral at Achimota Mile 7 in Accra.

Ebony and Franky, died in that fatal accident on Thursday 8, 2018, with the artiste, after she had accompanied the latter to Sunyani for a visit and were returning to Accra.

Another person who also died in the accident was Atsu Vondee, a military man who went with them for the visit.
