According to Mr. Nana Opoku Kwarteng, there had been reports that Kasapreko gave him GHC 90,000 as money to cover the concert and funeral of Ebony Reigns.
He however revealed that, he sought clarification from Kasapreko on the said issue only to be showed a photocopy of a cheque with the sum of GHC 39,999 written on it.
According to the father of the late ‘Poison’ singer, Bullet gave him only GHC 2,000 out of the GHC 39,999 profit made from the concert organized in his daughter’s name.

Ebony died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road while returning to Accra from Sunyani. Franky Kuri and one air force official, Francis Atsu Vondee also died in the car crash.
A tribute concert was held in her honor on March 23, 2018 which saw many artistes coming to perform. It was organized by her then management.
The GHC 10 gate fee which was charged is said to have gone into a foundation set up in the name of the late singer.
