- The Minister for Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has applauded the late Ebony for using her talent without fear
- The MP says current generation must learn from Ebony and put to use their God-given talents
The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West constituency, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has disclosed that talented dancehall artiste, Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, aka Ebony, made use of her God-given talent to the best of her ability.
According to the MP, despite all the backlash and huge criticisms heaped at the young musician, she forged ahead without being discouraged.
To her, Ebony’s ability to resist all criticism and to express herself through her style of music demonstrates that she used her talent to the 'glory of God'.
Speaking at Ebony’s one week observance in Accra on Sunday, Madam Ekuful stressed that Ghana has lost a young talented singer who was a national treasure.
“She was blessed with talent and she used it to the glory of her maker.We have lost a beautiful talented human being. We have lost somebody who wasn’t afraid to express her individuality and didn’t care about what anybody said or thought about her. We can all learn something from the short life that she lived here,” Ursula Owusu said.
The MP who doubles as the Minister for Communications added that the younger generation must learn from Ebony’s experience and be bold to express their God given talents.
“What is the talent given you by God that you’ve hidden for fear of what people will say about you? Be bold and put your talent into fruitful use to glorify God,” the minister admonished
Ebony’s provocative dress code generated some level of controversies but the dancehall diva was not bothered, as she continuously expressed her fashion sense through her music.
The beautiful singer met her untimely death together with her bodyguard, Francis Atsu Vondee and one of her closest friends, Frank Kuri in a gory accident while returning from a private trip.
The 20-year-old dancehall artiste took over Ghana music just within two years with many hit tracks.
Ebony will be laid to final rest on March 17, 2018 in Accra.
