In another video, Ebony's father asked the late singer's elder sister, Happy Opoku Kwarteng to say a word to her sister. Happy obliged by laying a wreath on the tomb before kneeling on the tomb.

"Oh, so it has become a tradition, a ritual that we do this every year. Ideally, it's supposed to be your birthday that we celebrate every year. Ideally, it's supposed to be a moment to celebrate, it should be an enjoyment day; it should be something that should bring laughter. This, definitely was not what we planned for [nor] prepared for. This was not the agreement [and] I always say who are we to question God...we can't do anything. All we can do is to come here to mourn and celebrate you because you've been good to the family. We thank you Nana. People may not undertand why we celebrate you every year but we know as a family. I know as sister what you have made me.
