The father of Dancehall sensation Ebony mentioned that Ebony was expected to begin her first tour of Europe in some few days.
In an interview with Joy News, Nana Poku-Kwarteng mentioned that he received a call at around 4 AM on Friday (February 9, 2018) dawn informing him of the death of his daughter.
He said that Ebony was expected to begin her first tour of Europe in some few days.
"She was leaving on the 10th February. I had her goddamn visa in my room. She was gonna tour Europe for the first time on the 10th [Saturday] - Belgium, Italy, Denmark, you name it."
He narrated that Ebony went to visit her mother who had returned from the United Kingdom.
“She left home on Thursday saying she was going to see her mum. Her mum just returned from the UK. I asked if she was driving because I was scared. It was late around 10 PM.”
However, Ebony told him she was going with a driver, her personal bodyguard “who is a soldier” and a friend who had returned from the US.
Nana Poku-Kwarteng said "I will ask Ghanaians to mourn with me. I will forever miss this girl."
Ebony died in an accident which occurred at Nyamebekyere near Mankranso in the Ahafo Ano South, a district in the Ashanti Region on Thursday (February 8, 2018) at about 11 PM.
A military officer and a young girl also died in the ghastly accident involving the black Jeep car of the musician and a VIP bus.
The District commander for Mankraso Superintendent John Adusei, in the Ashanti Region, confirmed the development to Accra-based Joy FM.
“My officers went there and identified the bodies of 3 persons (2 females and a male), including Ebony. Ebony was on board a jeep with registration number AS 487-13.”
“The driver of the jeep is currently unconscious at the hospital. According to some of the passengers on board the VIP, the driver of Ebony’s vehicle veered off the road and crashed into the VIP bus,” he added.
He said that the bodies of the deceased “have been deposited at the Mankraso morgue.”
