Thousand of Ghanaians today [Saturday], March 24, thronged the Osu Cemetery to say farewell to Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns.
Ebony, who died in an accident on February 8, was buried this afternoon after a burial service at the forecourt of the State House earlier in the day.
Family, friends and fans who defied a heavy downpour to attend the funeral followed the hearse carrying Ebony's casket to the cemetery to say goodbye.
But upon reaching the cemetery many of them could not behold the sad sight at the graveyard and they broke down in tears.
At the grave side, Rev. Dr Lawrence Tetteh, who preached at the burial service, committed Ebony's soul to the hands of the Almighty God.
“We present you back to the earth, dust to dust, ashes to ashes, earth to earth. We pray that the Almighty God will receive you safely, so do we also pray that everybody will look at your life and how you’ve gone and realise that everybody will go one day, so we work out our salvation with fear and tremble. I pray in the name of Jesus, that we will not live carelessly and life anyhow but we will live and live our lives to gratify God,” Rev. Dr Tetteh said.
As part of the committal service, ‘Trust in Him’, a hymnal song, was sung for her and it got people wailing.
