It appears the cloud of prophecies flying around the head of the late Ebony Reigns will settle anytime soon.
17-year-old Ebony and the Prophetess
Her manager, Bullet has stated that on the first day he met Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, whom he named Ebony after signing her, she had told him, fearfully, about a prophecy she received when she was 17, and meeting him (Bullet of Ruff and Smooth), which was part of the prophesy she received, made her fearful.
Speaking to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM on Monday, Bullet revealed that Ebony confided in him that a Prophetess she encountered at a prayer meeting at Mamfe where she attended Secondary School before she dropped out told her: “My daughter, you will become a very big star, but you will die at your peak”, the prophetess told Ebony in Twi.
The Prophetess then asked 17-year-old Ebony whether she knew Ruff and Smooth, the ‘swagger’ musicians, to which Ebony responded in the affirmative, adding that she even liked their songs.
The prophetess then told her one of the two musicians will meet her, and through him, her life will change. So when Ebony met a friend who told her he could link her up to a showbiz guru who could help her, Ebony wasn’t waiting to see who it was – it turned out to be Bullet of Ruff and Smooth fame, and who without any reservations proceeded to simply make her big.
Bullet said he was taken aback by the revelation, but expressed disappointment that in their search for help, he didn’t remember to ask Ebony to try and locate the said Prophetess. But that was not all.
Enter Sarkodie’s name
Bullet said the Prophetess told Ebony she will be so big that Sarkodie will contact her for a collaboration, but unfortunately for her, she (Ebony) will die at the peak of her stardom, a time when the bigger world would be ready to receive her with open hands.
Bullet, speaking solemnly to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM stated that because of how important that information was, he called witnesses including Ebony’s best friend whom he said was called Muna, who apparently knew about the prophesies already, to witness the incident.
Bullet said he also frequently alluded to the Prophesy whenever Ebony was refusing to follow advice on her movements, as a result of which other people working for the record label got to know about it, including their recent signing Brella who she featured on her hit track, “Hustle”.
He explained that because some of the prophesies the old Prophetess gave Ebony had come to pass including meeting him, they started visiting pastors and Men of God for prayers and direction as Ebony herself did a lot of philanthropy and personal prayers.
Bullet further revealed that Ebony received a collaboration invitation from Sarkodie early this year, leading to further apprehension in their camp.
The very intelligent artiste manager, who impressed listeners with his eloquence, level-headedness, composure and balance said he believed “whatever will happen was bound to happen, as a child who will die will die whether they take the child to Korlebu or the Pope”, but he was emphatic that his team did everything possible to save their Queen.
The head pastor of Gracious Fire House Chapel, Prophet Richard Gyimah has made claims that the Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns, who passed on to eternity through a gory road accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway, had to pay for a sacrifice she made.
Ebony’s death: MUSIGA demands dualization of intercity highways
The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) is demanding the dualization of major intercity highways in the country.
The president of the Union, Bice Osei Kuffuor, also known as Obuor, in an interaction with the press at the 1-week memorial of late dancehall musician, Ebony said the failure of successive governments to dualize major highways has resulted in several preventable deaths.
He said it was about time something urgent is done about the situation and the Union will embark on a massive campaign to demand action in that regard.
He bemoaned the increasing spate of road accidents resulting in the death of many Ghanaians.
Obuor told the press that, “when Ebony died, she didn’t just die, it calls for a revolution for us to make a movement towards solving this problem of road carnages. Ghana must welcome us. We will be coming to the districts, regions, cities to solicit for public consensus because it is about time that Ghana as a country has dual carriage roads across all regions. And that is something that we want Ebony’s [death] to be remembered for.
He said MUSIGA will champion the campaign through important collaborations with governmental and arts bodies including the GHAMRO to ensure that road carnages are significantly reduced.
Ebony, born, Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng died in a road accident on February 8, 2018 when a jeep she was travelling in skidded off its lane and ran into a VIP bus at Mankraso in the Ashanti Region.
Her death brings to memory other similar events involving celebrities such as Suzzy Williams, Terry Bonchaka, Kwame Owusu-Ansah and Vybrant Faya.
Meanwhile, the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Catherine Abelema Afeku, has said her Ministry will embark on a road safety awareness campaign to ensure sanity on the roads to save more lives.
Speaking at Ebony’s one-week memorial service on Sunday, she charged players in the entertainment industry to take the lead in road safety campaigns.
“This is a rallying call for the musicians, the artistes of Ghana to come together and to make a bold statement on road safety on the lives of the precious talent and creative citizens of this country, and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture will support you,” she said.
Madonna: My Son Will Be Malawi President
Pop star Madonna has called her son, David Banda, “the future president of Malawi” in a tweet praising the 12-year-old.
The US singer has six children, four of whom she adopted from Malawi.
The singer has reportedly had a fractious relationship with Malawi’s authorities.
In 2013, Malawi accused Madonna of “bullying state officials”, exaggerating her contribution to the country and demanding VIP treatment.
Madonna’s manager accused Malawi’s government of having a “grudge” against the singer’s charity, Raising Malawi, which she founded the same year she adopted David.
Last year, Malawi granted Madonna permission to adopt two more children, and she became mother to twin baby girls Esther and Stella Mwale.
