Madam Mercy Frimpong, aunt of the late Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, popularly known as Ebony has narrated what happened on the day Ebony visited her mother in Sunyani.
Speaking in an interview, Madam Mercy Frimpong recounted how Ebony phoned her mother and requested that they prepare “ampesi” for her.
The musician later called to change her request and asked for Jollof instead. According to her aunt, Ebony’s visit to see her mother in the Brong Ahafo region was supposed to be a surprise.
She added that when Ebony got to the gate leading into their house, a mighty wind blew causing all the people to seek shelter on the veranda. Madam Mercy Frimpong interpreted it as a sign of a great person visiting the house.
She added that Ebony refused to eat her food when she was served and rather asked to take her leave after spending some quality time with her mother.
Mother of the singer, according to Madam Mercy Frimpong, asked Ebony to sleep over and leave the next morning but that was not to be.
She said they later heard rumors that Ohemaa, as Ebony was affectionately called, had passed on but Madam Mercy Frimpong did not want to believe the news.
