Ebony may not have had a child of her own, but she was like a mother to many her manager, Ricky Nana Agyemang, popularly known as Bullet, has stated.
Explaining his statement, Bullet stated that the revenue his Ruff Town Records had started getting from Ebony’s deals was good enough to cater all those around artiste.
Apart from that, Bullet added, Ebony herself was very kind and ensured that whoever she came in to contact with, whether young or old, benefited from her largesse.
“Though she never had a biological child, she did her best as a mother to support the old and young. She was the one who was taking care of us”, Bullet stated in interview on Okay FM last Monday.
Bullet’s comments came as part of his reaction to comments that Zylofon Media were on the verge of snatching Ebony from Ruff Town with a $100,000 bail out.
According to Bullet, the $100,000 being peddled around was not anywhere near Ebony’s value because “her brand was so big that she was earning enough to feed us all just like a mother will do”.
Giving an example of Ebony’s earning power, Bullet disclosed that the deal she signed with Kasapreko as brand ambassador for Hi5 Chocomalt was worth $200,000 and that she recently show worth GHC90,000 which could not be claimed before her tragic accident.
Born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng on February 16, 1997, Ebony died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway while returning from Sunyani where she had gone to visit her mother.
She was returning to Accra to prepare for a tour of Europe the next day.
