Ghanaian Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has expressed grief and commiserated with the family of deceased musician, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng known in showbiz as Ebony.
Ebony died with two others around 11:45PM at Nyame Bekyere near Mankranso in the Ahafo Ano South District of the Ashanti Region on Thursday, February 8.
According to police report, on reaching a section of the road between Nyamebekyere and Nsuta, there was a heap of sand in the lane of Ebony’s Jeep, and her driver, in trying to avoid running into the sand, swerved onto the opposite lane and grazed the nearside portion of a VIP bus and plunged into the railings at the edge of the road, killing the music star as well as Francisca Nkansah Kuri, aged 27 years; and Lance Corporal Vondee Francis Atsu, aged 29 years.
In an interview with Moro Awudu on Class FM’s Executive Breakfast Show on Monday, February 12, Shatta Wale said: “It is so sad. You know, after I heard this about her, man cannot even do anything. Young girl and she just died like that”.
Since the news of the death of the ‘Maame Hwe’ hit singer, family members of the music star say they can’t come to terms with the shocking death of their beloved daughter.
However, Shatta Wale is encouraging the family to be strong as he shared his condolences.
“I want to tell her family [that] we are all sorry. It’s so sad and we need to believe in God,” he added.
Ebony featured Shatta Wale in the remix of her ‘Sponsor’ track which has enjoyed massive airplay on radio for months.
