Just over 24 hours since the news of the tragic death of dancehall diva, Ebony Reigns emerged, and still, Ghanaians all over are caught in the throes of shock.
From social media posts to TV stations interacting with citizens on busy streets across the country, it could easily be seen that this sad loss of one Ghana’s brightest lights is felt everywhere.
As we mourn the loss of the rising dancehall star, all we can do to remember that she lived her best life even at such a young age, is to take a trip down memory lane to see how far Ebony managed to come up before this shocking passing.
YEN.com.gh sighted a photo posted by a Facebook user David Goodman, which showed a much younger Ebony back in her days in high school.
In the photo, Ebony is seen with a group of friends, posing in that class group photo style wearing her house dress from Methodist Girls High.
Born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, Ebony was the youngest female musician in Ghana, who had numerous back to back hits since she launched onto the music scene in 2015.
She released her first song 'Dance Floor' in 2015 which earned her a nomination in the Unsung Category of the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
She then released her first major hit single “Kupe” in March 2016 and the hits kept coming.
"Poison", "Sponsor", "Date Ur Fada", "Hustle (m3di wo dwa)" and "Maame Hw3" are some of her best works, and no artiste has had more concurrent hit tracks on the Ghanaian music scene than Ebony.
Ebony dominated the 2017 BASS Awards held last December and had been highly tipped to become the first ever female to win the coveted Artiste of the Year in Ghana accolade at the 2018 edition of the VGMAs to be held somewhere in April.
As things stand now, she will likely set the record for being the first posthumous winner.
