The President of Musicians' Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kufour, better known as Obour has disclosed that the association will take on politicians in order to make major highways across the country safer for all Ghanaians.
According to him, Ghanaians all over the world, especially MUSIGA executives are alarmed after the sudden death of talented dancehall artiste, Ebony.
Speaking at Ebony’s one week celebration in Accra on Sunday, as monitored by YEN.com.gh, Obour lamented that Ghana has lost so many souls through road accidents and it is about time for leaders to rise up and find lasting solutions.
Obour who was visibly heartbroken indicated that he also experienced a life threatening accident years back but was fortunate to have survived the deadly crash.
“Our musicians and our celebrities are losing their lives through accidents, this is a sad situation for our country Ghana. Suzzy Williams lost her life through road accident, Kwame Owusu Ansah, Terry Bonchaka did same, and now Ebony,” Obour lamented.
The MUSIGA president indicated that the association is about to embark on a serious road safety campaign and will also present a petition to parliament.
Obour disclosed that the MUSIGA road safety campaign will put intense pressure on politicians and major stakeholders to convert all highways in Ghana into a dual carriage in order to prevent accidents.
“When you go to South Africa it is done and why can’t we do same here in Ghana? Many people are losing their lives in Ghana whiles we watch on doing nothing,” Obour sadly said.
The MUSIGA boss insisted that, the death of Ebony has thought Ghana a bitter lesson which every individual must wake up to the clarion call in order to put pressure on politicians to do more for the citizens.
Ebony Reigns met her untimely death together with her body guard and one of her closest friend, Franky Kuri in a gory accident on Kumasi-Sunyani highway whiles returning from a private trip.
The 20-year-old talented dancehall artistes took over Ghana music industry by storm with many hit songs just within two years.
Ebony’s burial and final funeral rights have been scheduled for March 17, 2018 in Accra.
