Popular Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Ebony Reigns, has died in a fatal road accident.
Reports said the 20-year-old dancehall artiste died Thursday evening on the Sunyani-Kumasi road after a Jeep in which she was travelling along with two military officers collided head-on with a VIP coming from the opposite direction.
Myjoy reports that the two military occupants also died later at the Bechem Government Hospital after they were rushed there,
According to Myjoy, DSP John Adusei, Mankraso District Commander, confirmed that the two military officers died at the Bechem Government Hospital where they were rushed to.
The driver of the VIP bus reportedly survived the accident but he is currently unconscious at the same hospital receiving treatment.
Adusei said the bodies have been deposited at Mankraso Hospital Morgue in the Ashanti Region.
Barimaba Yusif, a journalist with a local radio station, After-2 FM, said on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM Friday the road on which the accident occurred was in a bad state.
The journalist suspects that the driver of the Jeep in which Ebony was travelling had attempted to avoid running into a heap of sand that was being used for road construction but instead ran into the VIP bus travelling in the opposite direction.
Known in real life as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, Ebony was widely known for her hit songs “Poison” and “Kupe”.
