- The two personalities were believed to have taken a liking for each other over their respective professions
Outspoken sports journalist and TV personality, Patrick Osei Agyeman, popularly known as Countryman Songo, has finally arrived at the funeral ceremony for late Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng known by the stage name, Ebony Reigns.
The firebrand TV icon who used to refer to Ebony as his ‘baby girl’ was spotted in a very solemn mood as he joined many people including family and friends of the late dancehall act at the State House in Accra.
He was spotted as he tried to file-past the mortal remains of the late singer. Just as he was about entering, he broke down upon seeing the photos of the singer which had been displayed outside the tent.
The journalist was immediately surrounded by some of the people who were around and they tried to console him.
He was later taken away to have a seat among the dignitaries who were already present at the funeral of the ‘Date Ur Fada’ singer.
In recounting how he received the news of Ebony’s death, Countryman Songo said he woke up around 4:30 AM on February 9 and called Ebony on phone but there was no response and Ebony did not return the call like she would normally have.
The “Fire for Fire” show host revealed that shortly after this unusual incident, calls started coming in to inform him about the untimely demise of Ebony.
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 musician was returning from Sunyani after a visit when she was involved in the car accident.
She was a Ghanaian dancehall artiste widely known for her hit songs "Poison" and "Kupe".
