The father of late songstress Ebony Reigns, Nana Opoku Kwarteng, has expressed shock over the decision by former manager of his daughter, Ricky Nana Agyeman, to hand over her unreleased songs to him.
The songstress, who died in an accident in February, 2018, is said to have many unreleased songs to her credit.
In a release dated August 14, 2018, Mr Agyeman, popularly known as Bullet, who is the CEO of managers Rufftown Records, noted that he was giving all songs recorded by Ebony to her father.
The release came a day after Mr. Kwarteng had accused Bullet of cheating him and not properly accounting for proceeds from his late daughter’s funeral.
Speaking in an interview on TV3’s News 360, Mr. Kwarteng said he did not expect Bullet to freely hand over his late daughter’s unreleased songs in the manner he did.
“I never knew he was going to put those things out there. Let me be honest, I was damn shocked, seriously shocked.”
He said he least expected Bullet to give out the songs without taking any money from him.
“Once upon a time, I asked you; I wanted to take them when we went to the lawyer, he said Nana, pay me some money and take this, so I was about to do that when my lawyer said ‘No, leave it for now’,” Mr. Kwarteng said.
He further denied allegations leveled against him by Bullet on social media.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, August 14, Bullet noted that he had given all proceeds from a tribute concert held in Ohio to the late Ebony’s father, among other monies made from the donations and concerts in memory of the late songstress.
But Mr. Kwarteng denied knowledge of any concert in Ohio.
“The Ohio thing, I know nothing about it,” he noted.
He also insisted that he only received an amount of GHȻ2,000 from donations and money made from Ebony’s funeral.
