- The date and venue for the funeral of Ebony have been changed
- The family had faced difficulties in getting the Independence Square as the venue
The final funeral rites and burial service of the late Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns have been rescheduled to March 24, 2018.
The postponement follows difficulties to secure a big enough venue for the funeral.
Ebony's funeral had originally been scheduled to take place on March 17 at the Black Stars (Independence) Square.
However, the father of Ebony, Nana Opouku Kwarteng, disclosed in a radio interview last Saturday that the family was struggling to secure the Independence Square as it had already been booked for a programme on March 17.
“The venue is the challenge. We earlier had the indication that we could hold it there but as it stands, it’s a little dicey. The Canadian High Commission has an event at the Forecourt of the State House on the very day. It had been booked way back. The Black Star Square had also been booked by Aglow International,” Mr Kwarteng stated.
Mr Kwarteng urged the public to exercise patience as they (public) would be updated after a meeting with the Chief of Staff, Frema Osei Opare, Monday, March 5.
“Let’s hold on. We are meeting the Chief of Staff on Monday to finalize issues. After that, we will brief the country about the development,” he noted.
But after the meeting with the Chief of Staff, the family has pushed Ebony's funeral one week further.
Also, YEN.com.gh understands, the funeral will now be held at the forecourt of the State House instead of the Independence Square.
Born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, Ebony died in an accident on February 8, 2018, with two others, Franky Kuri and Francis Atsu Vondee, on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway while returning from Sunyani after visiting her mother.
While Franky Kuri was laid to rest on March 3, Francis Atsu Vondee will be buried on March 23, 2018 at Adidome Mafi in the Volta Region.
