Award-winning actor Kofi Adjorlolo has made an audacious call to organisers of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) to give the Artiste of the Year gong to Ebony.
“Like we all know, [2018 VGMA] Artiste of the Year, they have to decide to give it to her posthumously.”
The veteran actor made this suggestion on Friday at the family house of the late songstress.
He was there to mourn with the family.
He recounts how he grew fond of the talented artiste liking everything she posts on Instagram.
“What saddens me is that this girl is dead and gone with all the talent,” he told Media General‘s Owusu Worae.
Ebony Reigns, born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, died on Thursday night in a fatal crash on the Sunyani-Accra highway.
She was returning from a visit to her UK-based mum at Ohene Gyan, a suburb of Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.
Before her death, Ebony had been tipped to be the first female to win the Artiste of the Year at this year’s VGMAs.
She released successive hit songs including Sponsor, Di Me Dwa and Maame Hwe, which is the favourite of former President John Dramani Mahama’s.
She was nominated for the Unsung Artiste of the Year at the 2016 VGMAs. She, however, had many awards including 2017 Bass Artiste of the Year Award to her credit.
