5 heartbreaking photos that prove Ebony was everything to her dad

Ebony and her dad, Nana Opoku Kwarteng

The death of Dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns in a gory accident last Thursday, has come as a shock to many.

Family, fans and even political leaders including President Nana Akufo-Addo and former President John Mahama have all expressed their surprise over the incident.

Ebony's mother, Beatrice Oppong, who saw off the singer after she visited her in Sunyani, in a radio interview, was heard wailing, literally, over her daughter's death.

The father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng, however, has been manly in his public interviews and he was able to control his emotions as he summed up his reaction that "Ghana was blessed to have my queen".

But considering how close he and her daughter were, it is quite obvious that Ebony's dad would be the most affected by his death.

Apart from the regular dinners between father and daughter, Ebony's father was highly involved in her life and career.

He is on record to have stated he sanctioned her daughter's decision to leave school, midway through SHS, to pursue a career in music.

He has defended her in the face of all criticisms against her dressing saying her daughter is not 'bad' girl and that he sometimes chooses her stage outfits for her showing a very deep bond between them.

Ebony's death would, therefore, be a very big blow to him and he summed it up in his interview that, "my girl was special and I'll forever miss her".
