Afia Schwarzenegger blasts Counsellor Lutterodt for tagging Ebony a ‘burden’

Radio presenter Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has criticized Counsellor Lutterodt for referring to the late Ebony Reigns as a “burden”.

The controversial counsellor has come under the spotlight in recent days after he reportedly referred to Ebony as a burden to society.

In a recent interview, he is reported to have said that the late singer burdened the society because she was raised by a single parent.

"Ebony was a burden to Ghanaians since she was left alone to be raised by a single parent. If you’re raised by a single parent you become a burden to society,” the Counsellor is quoted as saying.

However, his utterances have not sat well with Afia Schwarzenegger, who believes Mr. Lutterodt did not respect the memory of the departed Ebony.

The TV and radio host visited the family of the dead dancehall diva and criticized the counsellor, describing his comments as “foolish” and “annoying”.

“I am very pained and annoyed that you allowed Counsellor Lutterodt to come here and say whatever he wants and it’s on the internet. … I don’t know how you related with our sister (Ebony), but there is no dump site for human beings,” Afia lashed out.

“If so, my mum would have dumped me there already. We don’t have a dump site for humans. There is also no one on this earth who was born perfect. We all come from different homes. “Counsellor Lutterodt has come here to say a lot of things, but do you know what we will find if we dig up his matter? It’s like we are giving some people the attention to sit on TV and talk just anyhow.

“Those foolish things he said are very annoying. There is no dump site made for human beings. What Nana Hemaa (Ebony) was doing was entertainment.”

Ebony, known in real life as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, died on February 8, 2018 after being involved in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway.
