Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Women’s Group in Somanya in the Eastern Region claim late Ghanaian artiste, Ebony was a staunch member of the party.
They say the ‘Sponsor’ artiste and her family are known proud members of the party who have never hidden their love for the NDC.
The group made the claim during the NDC Unity March held in Somanya attended by ex-President John Mahama over the weekend. They added that Ebony would have been part of the march if she were still alive.
“Ebony is an NDC member that’s why we’re wearing her T-Shirt, her family is known to be members of the NDC. What we’re saying is not rumour, we have facts to prove our claims. I’ve a picture she took with her dad in their room which showed a big umbrella and a big flag. There’s no way Ebony would have missed this march if she were to be alive, but we’re still mourning her.” Some of the members said.
Their claims have not been independently confirmed, but their assertions contradict a statement made by the Minister of Communications during the One Week memorial ceremony for the late artiste a fortnight ago.
A video which has gone viral on social media captured the Communication Minister Mrs Owusu-Ekuful saying she was saddened by the loss of the hiplife artiste, Ebony, who was her constituent because she has lost one vote by the death of the musician.
Ebony died along with her friend Franki Kuri and Francis Atsu Vondee her bodyguard in a tragic accident that occurred on 8th February 2018, while returning from the Brong-Ahafo Region where she’d gone to visit her mother who had returned from Abroad.
Ebony Reigns will be buried on March 17, 2018, in Accra.
