Former Ministers Oye Lithur, Julius Debrah attend Ebony's funeral

Top officials from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have shown up at the funeral of the singer, Ebony Reigns, to commiserate with friends and family of the late singer.

Thousands of mourners have trouped in at the State House in Accra to pay their last respects to the singer.

So far, some key figures and state officials have made it to the funeral grounds including the former mayor of Accra, Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije.

The burial service and final funeral rites which had originally been scheduled for March 17 at the Independence Square had to be postponed after it clashed with already booked programmes at the initial venue.

Following a meeting between Ebony's family, led by her father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng, and the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Opare, the funeral was rescheduled to March 24 at the forecourt of the State House.

Despite a heavy downpour in many parts of Accra in the early hours of Saturday, many have thronged the venue to pay their last respects to the singer.
