The Tourism Arts and Culture Minister says government will consult with the family of the late dancehall act, Ebony Reigns in order to give her a befitting burial.

Catherine Abelema Afeku said the late musician deserves to be celebrated because she touched lives here in Ghana and across Africa with her many hit songs.

Commiserating with the family, friends and fans following the demise of Ebony, the Creative Arts Minister said the government will definitely play a role in the artiste’s burial.

Mrs Afeku also cautioned the public to desist from sharing the gory images from the accident, saying it amounts to a disrespect of the dead.

We have learnt with deep regret the sad passing of Hiplife, Hilife and Dancehall Super Star Ebony, through a fatal accident.

We will consult with the family to give our Songstress a befitting send-off.

We mourn with the family and pray for God’s strength and guidance.

Published

Andrew Samini, known in showbiz circles as Samini Dagaate has said he is the originator of African Dancehall genre so that makes him the KING of that genre.

The ‘My Own’ hitmaker told Mikki Osei Berko on After Hours show on TV3, he is still the dancehall king owing to the fact that he is sitting on his throne and minding his own business.

“African Dancehall is the genre I created so I’m still the King for that. Foreign market for African Dancehall is huge. Africa is doing Dancehall from the authentic point of view so then it becomes a specialized genre from Africa. Ghanaians or West Africans do dancehall music almost close to how Jamaicans do it.”

Samini termed his brand of music as the “African dancehall”. He signed his first record deal with Ashanti International. He started his own record label after he left the aforementioned label.

He has released Six studio albums, with all being highly successful on the commercial market. Samini’s success and recognition began when his first single, Linda, was released and subsequently appearing on other successful singles by other artistes.
