Speaking during an interview with Hitz FM's MzGee, Ebony Reigns expressed that when one listens to a song, it's the content, and context, of the song that should indicate to the listener exactly what is being referred to.
Zeroing in on her controversial new track, "Hustle", she expressed that however ambiguous her lyrics may be, one would know what she is talking about.
"...even if it meant something else, you would know what I'm trying to talk about because I'm talking about "hustle"...Music is art, it's not because of an ambiguous word or phrase that I'm not going to make the music God put in me to make".

Another issue leveled against the 20-year-old dancehall artist is what others have described as her "provocative" sense of style. Nevertheless, according to Ebony, people complaining about her outfits isn't a new thing.
Ebony went on to say that, more often than not, her management tend to be the ones asking her to tone it down when she chooses an outfit she wants to wear at an event. As opposed to fellow Ghanaian songstress, Mzbel, who later blamed her management for badly in "leading" them, Ebony expressed that this is how she is.

"Honestly, you need someone from my past to actually tell you the kind of person I am, this is nothing, do you get me. Bullet tries to tone it down. Sometimes there's an outfit that I want to wear for a show, and Bullet will be like, 'Bony, dabi, Ghana is not ready for this yet'". Said Ebony.
Ebony said that although Bullit knows the music industry better than she does, her manager can't push her to do what she doesn't want to do.
