-Ebony's manager, Bullet, says he regrets making threats against the artiste's career
-Bullet had made the threatening comments a few weeks before Ebony's death
-He now says he had no power over Ebony's God-given talent
The manager of the late Dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns, Ricky Nana Agyeman, has expressed his regrets over some threatening comments he made about Ebony prior to her death.
Popularly known as Bullet, the CEO of Ruff Town Records discovered Ebony somewhere in 2015 and moulded her into one of the topmost artistes by the time of her death.
A few weeks before the tragic accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway which took her life on February 8, Bullet was reported to be displeased with Ebony.
While answering a question on whether he thought Ebony was being ungrateful to him, Bullet had suggested that the singer could not be ungrateful because she [Ebony] knew he had what it takes to bring down her career.
"I can press the button to bring her career down," he was reported to have stated.
This comment was widely deemed as threatening and some have suggested that Bullet probably had something to do with Ebony's untimely demise.
But speaking in an interview on Kasapa FM on Tuesday, February 13, the Ruff Town CEO admitted that it was wrong of him to have made such comments.
“I have regretted saying ‘I can destroy Ebony’… I’m just human and I’ve no power to do that. The talent was given to her by God and I have no authority to say I will destroy her talent," he said.
He, however, pointed out that his comments were not meant as a threat as was being suggested.
He explained that it was normal for a manager and an artiste to quarrel and later patch up their differences.
For him, it was ridiculous to suggest that he had a hand in the accident looking at what he has lost and if people would not sympathise with him, they should better keep quiet.
"I didn’t just lose my money invested in Ebony but an asset as well as a result of the accident,” he added.
