Manager of Ebony (of blessed memory), Bullet has slammed artists requesting for a fee to perform at Ebony’s Tribute Concert slated for March 23 at the Trade Fair.
The member of the now defunct Ruff & Smooth wrote on his Facebook;
“Some of our Ghanaian artistes are hypocrite, you came to Ebony’s one week observation because the numbers were there and again it was being telecast live on air so some of you came there to use the platform.
Now you’re asking me to pay you for her tribute concert. I thought you loved her as you claimed on stage at her one week. This is pure hypocrisy. Big thanx to every artistes who has decided to support us. We are grateful. #EbonyIToldYouSomeGhArtisteAreNotReal #RIPEbony #RuffRecords #Midastouchinc”
An A-List ensemble of musicians including Yaa Pono, Ras Kuuku, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Samini, VVIP, R2Bees, Ras Kuuku, and Nana Boroo have all been announced for the concert, which is expected to attract several thousands of fans.
Other expected performers include Kofi Kinaata, Feli Nuna, Brella, Danny Beatz, and a host of others.
A Rufftown Records/ Midas Touch Inc. event, it comes off in partnership with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Ghana Music Rights Organisation ( GHAMRO), and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
The singer (born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng) met her untimely death in a February 8 car crush on the Kumasi – Sunyani road.
Author of several 2017 hits and the Bonyfied album, Ebony is expected to dominate the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards night slated for April.
Her final funeral rights have been slated for Saturday March 24 at the forecourt of the State House.
