- The late Ebony was known for her brand name ‘Original 90s Badgirl'
- She was noted for her stage craft, and dressing which earned her much criticisms from Ghanaains
- But her father has spoken, saying his daughter was raised properly and was never a bad girl
The late Ebony Reigns made the most headlines in 2017 especially, following her brand as a musician.
Her dress and grooming was a subject of much concern to Ghanaians because she was accused of showing too much flesh.
Ebony was therefore called a bad girl, but even before those criticisms, she herself had named her brand the ‘Original 90s Badgirl’.
She justified her actions, stage craft and ‘provocative’ dressing, while appealing to Ghanaians to focus on her talent rather than attire.
But this angered a section of the public, who castigated her, notable among them is counselor Lutterodt who even after her death, said in plain language that “Ebony was a burden to society”.
But her father has spoken on her tagline ‘Original 90s badgirl’, according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanacelebrities.com.
Nana Poku Kwarteng, Ebony’s father, has said that his daughter received the best of training every child could boast of, therefore she was not a bad girl.
He reportedly said that his daughter’s dress and grooming could be for the benefit of her brand, but she herself was not a bad girl.
So definitely as a dad, he had no option than to give all the support his daughter needed in her career.
The father also said the good training Ebony received, coupled with her branding no doubt helped her to excel in her short but successful career, of which he is proud.
Ebony Reigns died aged 20, just a week to her 21st birthday, on the Kumasi-Brong Ahafo Highway.
She was laid to rest at the Osu cemetery on February 24, 2018.
