Self-acclaimed queen of comedy in Ghana, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa, popularly known as Afia Schwar, has taken to social media to campaign for late dancehall act, Ebony Reigns to win an award at the impending VGMA’s.
The popular TV personality took to her Instagram account and shared a lovely photo of Ebony Reigns and Franky Kuri and went on to encourage people to vote for the late 21-year-old musician.
Afia Schwar, who admitted having missed the two young ladies, canvassed for support in the form of votes for the ‘Poison’ singer to get awarded even after her unfortunate demise.
The post made by the actress read, “I miss them borh…Keep voting A2 to 1767 for my Bony to win artist of the year!!! This is your send off gift...so pls text now and God bless you as u do so. Rest in peace @ebony_reigns #Kupe.”
Even after news of the death of the award-winning dancehall act, the organizers of the Ghana Music Award saw it fit to nominate her for the awards because of her seeming dominance in the dancehall genre in Ghana.
The ‘Date Ur Fada’ singer has received a number of nominations and many people are hopeful that she could win some accolades for her hard work while she was alive.
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 scheduled for March 24, 2018 instead of the first date, March 17. The postponement follows difficulties to secure a big enough venue for the funeral.
She was buried at the Osu Cemetery after the final funeral rites were held in Accra at the forecourt of the State House.
