Ghanaians celebrate Ebony Reigns, two years after her untimely demise

Today, Saturday February 8, 2020 marks exactly two years since the death of Ebony Reigns, born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng left the nation dumbfounded.

The news of the untimely death of the vibrant Afro-beat and Reggae Dancehall artiste shocked the country as many struggled to come to terms that Ebony could no longer be considered among the living.

The sensational ‘Sponsor’ hitmaker died in a fatal road accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road after visiting her mother in Sunyani, in the Bono Region.

A Jeep with registration number AS 497-16 in which she was travelling in, was involved in a head-on collision with a VIP bus which was headed towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

Ebony, who was 20 years old at that time, perished in that accident alongside two others, a lady friend only identified as Frankie and a serving military officer identified as Francis Atsu Vondee.

However, the driver of the vehicle escaped with life threatening injuries.

The music diva was laid to rest on March 24, 2018, at the Osu Cemetery.

Fans of the songstress are currently flooding social media with messages to honour the death of their late queen.

Ebony who took over the music scene in 2017, is credited with hit songs such as ‘Kupe’, ‘Poison’, ‘Sponsor’, ‘Date your father’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Maame Hw3’, and ‘Aseda.’

She also became the first female singer in Ghana to win the overall artiste of the year in the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Award.
