Ebony’s one-week memorial service in pictures

Thousands gathered at St. Martin De Porres School, Dansoma for Ebony's one week commemoration

The St. Martin De Porres school was flooded with scores of people, family, friends, sympathisers and fans for the one-week memorial service of Dancehall act Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng aka Ebony Reigns.

Several musicians, ministers and dignitaries were present to pay their respect and commiserate with the family.

In any typical Ghanaian society, after the passing of a dear one, family and friends meet a week after the death mainly to make plans towards the organization of the funeral rites and also give opportunity for those who may not have been able to a pay courtesy call to the family, to do so.

The ‘sponsor’ hit maker died alongside two others, a close friend and a military officer who according to her father, was her bodyguard.

Born 16 February 1997 Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng aka Ebony, Ghanaian dancehall/Afrobeats artist who is widely known for her hits ‘Sponsor’ and ‘Kupe’, was exposed to the music industry by Bullet her manager.

She proved herself worthy to be maintained in the industry after her first song "Dancefloor", in December 2015 became a hit and was nominated for the unsung category at the 2016 Ghana Music Awards.
