The highlife legend, during his live performance at the MTN Music Festival, eulogized the ‘fallen’ great acts in the country including Ewurama Badu, Paapa Yankson, Super OD and South African legend, Hugh Masekela.
The legendary musician said even though he was sad about the passing of the great names, he was very much hurt by the unfortunate and untimely passing of Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, known in showbiz as Ebony Reigns because she was relatively younger than the other fallen heroes of entertainment.

Kojo Antwi added that he had not given so much attention to the 'Date Ur Fada' singer and went on to eulogize her with a performance of her popular song, 'Hustle'.
As he started his very own live band rendition of the popular song by the late artiste, the crowd could not keep calm but dance and shout along.
The dancers on the stage also thrilled the crowd with their dance moves which brought more cheers the way of the entire band who were on the stage performing.
Many other artistes and public figures have eulogized the late 21-year-old singer in a myriad of ways in a bid to preserve her memory.
Chief among them is Wanlov The Kubulor, who decided to name one of his daughter’s after the 'Poison' singer.
Ebony died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road while returning to Accra from Sunyani.
Her childhood friend and PA, Franky Kuri and one air force official, Francis Atsu Vondee, who posed as a bodyguard also died in the car crash.
The final funeral rites and burial service of the late Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns have been rescheduled to March 24, 2018 instead of the first date, March 17.
The postponement follows difficulties to secure a big enough venue for the funeral.
