Nana Poku Kwarteng, the father of the late dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns has given a hint on how much he would take out of proceeds from unreleased records of his daughter.
Starboy Kwarteng as he is currently known within Ghana’s showbiz circles was involved in a feud with Ebony’s manager and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rufftown Records, Bullet, after her daughter passed away.
Mr. Kwarteng had accused Bullet of using dubious means to cheat him in the sharing of money that accrued from Ebony’s tribute concert.
However, after burying their differences, the late singer’s father revealed that an agreement had been reached in principle to revert to splitting profits in the same manner it was done when Ebony was alive.
When Citi TV asked whether it would be 60 percent to the record label and 40 percent to him (Starboy Kwarteng) he responded in the affirmative.
“It will be as it has always been. Nothing has changed yet, so for now the arrangement remains the same,” he responded with a wry smile on his face.
Both Nana Kwarteng and Rufftown Records have agreed to also organize an anniversary programme in memory of the late dance hall diva.
