On February 08, 2018, Ghana lost one of its most promising musical talents in the name of Priscilla Agyemang known in showbiz as Ebony Reigns.
Hours after news of her death hit the public, various reports, articles and rumours on the life on Ebony began to trend on the internet with various media platforms telling the sad story of how Ebony Reigns and her two other friends tragically loss their lives in a fatal road accident.
While a lot of media reports have chronicled the short but beautiful life of Ebony and her wonderful music career that span just over two years, many other issues were left unreported and Asembi.com brings them to readers.
Ebony’s Betrayal and Bullet’s revenge
Before Ebony passed away, her last days were marked with series of cautions and subtle jabs from Bullet, CEO of RuffTown Records. At a point, speculations went rife that Ebony had left RuffTown Records to sign for a Nigerian record label.
However, Bullet was struggling to hold on to Ebony and felt betrayed that Ebony not on a single occasion came out to debunk rumours of her joining another label. This made Bullet believe that Ebony wanted out of his label and wasn’t committed to the project he had in store for her.
The situation got to a breaking point when Bullet in a radio interview said she could make and unmake Ebony because he was the one writing most of her songs for her.
In that interview, one could clearly feel the disappointment and revenge in Bullet’s tone of language. One may ask, What was the relationship between Ebony and her management before her tragic accident? Was Ebony already on her own? Was the accident a planned revenge?
While Ebony and Bullet were reportedly having issues, multi-million record label, Zylofon Media was also in talks with the young music prodigy without her management’s consent.
The CEO of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah said on Instagram the day after Ebony’s death that she was just days away from signing for Zylofon Media pending a $100,000 bailout which Bullet knew nothing of.
Why was Ebony in a rush to leave the label that made her? What problems were she facing? Was it a mere ungratefulness and betrayal?
