Obour, as he is popularly known, was interviewed by Joy FM on Friday morning, where he said he could not believe the news of the singer’s death.

The MUSIGA president joins the many stakeholders in the entertainment industry who are devastated by the tragic death of the rising music star.
Ebony, a friend and a military officer were on board a Jeep from Sunyani heading towards Kumasi when it collided head-on with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.
Ebony who was returning from Sunyani, after a visit to her mother who had just returned from the UK, died at the Bechem Government Hospital.
