Ghanaians have been reacting to an interview granted by the father of late dancehall artiste Ebony who is currently at war with the former manager of his deceased daughter.
In an interview with GhOne, Ebony’s father, Nana Opoku Kwarteng reads from a handwritten breakdown that he claims was given to him by the artiste’s manager Ricky Nana Agyemang aka Bullet after Ebony’s tribute concert.
According to Mr Kwarteng, Bullet claims he paid GH?4,000 in facilitation to media men as well as performance monies to musicians who performed at Ebony’s tribute concert.
He said Bullet informed him that artistes including Edem, K?ch?, Ras Kuuku, Captain Planet, Coded, R2Bees and Rachel all received monies for performing at the tribute held in honour of the singer who died in an accident.
How much each artiste allegedly received;
Edem – GH? 3000
K?ch? – GH? 3000
Raskuku – GH? 1500
Captain Planet – GH? 2,000
Coded – GH? 1000
R2bees – GH? 3,000
Rachel – GH? 1000
Artistes including Coded, K?ch? and Captain Planet have in separate statements denied receiving any monies from Bullet to perform at the concert.
The disclosure marks the latest chapter in the breakdown of the relationship between Mr Kwarteng and Bullet since the death of Ebony on February 8 this year. The singer died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway together with a friend Franklina Maame Yaa Tebua Nkansah alias Franky Kuri soldier, Lance Corporal Atsu Vondee.
Earlier this week, Bullet disclosed that he had handed a trove of the singer’s unreleased songs to her father after Mr Kwarteng accused him of retaining a large chunk of the profits accrued from a tribute concert held in Ebony’s honour.
