- Root Eye says Ebony would have conquered many male Ghanaian musicians
- The veteran musician believes Ebony would have become Ghana's star in the world
Veteran Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artiste, Kwasi Offei Nyarko, aka Root Eye, has disclosed that there is no Ghanaian female artiste who can breaks Ebony’s record.
According to Root Eye, the late sensational artiste, , Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, aka Ebony Reigns, could have been Ghana’s answer to America’s superstar, Rihanna.
The veteran musician speaking exclusively to www.flexgh.com, insisted that Ebony was the only female artiste who could have even conquered most male musicians in Ghana.
To him, her untimely demise is a huge loss to the Ghana music industry and Ghanaians abroad, who could have taken pride in her glory.
“Her demise causes the scene a huge loss. She had become a massive force to reckon with. She had completely taken over the space where no female had ever risen to, and was going to get even bigger. She was our answer to Rihanna and she represented her brand to the core,” Root Eye eulogized.
The musician in his conversation, indicated that the late Ebony couldn’t make many stage performances due to the fear for her life because of the death prophesies by some self-styled prophets, but her "brand dominance made her the best candidate for ‘Artiste of the Year’ award."
"Ebony has caused a huge void. It’s obvious her career hadn’t even peaked yet. But the domineering posture she assumed last year was evident that she was going to grow into a mighty artist. Unfortunately, we’ve been denied the privilege of experiencing a female at that pedestal of performing arts,” he added.
Root Eye lamented that despite all the vilification and bashing she received from many Ghanaians, Ebony never gave up on her dreams as a young lady.
The accident claimed the life of the singer including her private bodyguard, and one of her closest friend, Franky Kuri., yet heavily criticized but she was able to find a balance with her latest look and the single, ‘Maame Hwe’, and even the gospel song she released,a" the reggae musician added.
The 20-year-old dancehall artiste who was at the peak of her career met her untimely death in a gory accident last month on Kumasi-Sunyani highway while returning to Accra from a private trip.
The accident claimed the life of the singer including her private bodyguard, and one of her closest friend, Frnky Kuri.
The late Ebony will be laid to final rest on March 17, 2018 with the funeral at the Independence Square in Accra.
