Nana Opoku Kwarteng, the father of late dancehall diva Ebony Reigns, has indicated he’ll sue her daughter’s former manager, Bullet to compel him to hand over Ebony’s unreleased songs.
He’s confident that court action is the only way that will ensure he has possession of his late daughter’s albums as several attempts to get Bullet to release them have proven futile.
After a year of tragic Ebony’s her former Manager is said to be holding on tight to the songs which couldn’t be released following the musician’s sudden death.
Starboy Kwarteng as Ebony’s father is popularly called told host Moses Aluebasi on Ejura based Naagyei FM‘s Entertainment show that he’ll use all the legal means available to him to get what he wants from Bullet.
“Sometime back he authored a press release telling Ghanaians that he’s handed over Ebony’s songs to me, but I said I’d not received anything from him. We later met at GHAMRO offices where he listed Ebon’s songs yet to be released which he was going to hand over to me. But as I’m speaking with you’ll not even a single song has been given to me. I’ve spoken to him severally that it is over a year now since Ebony’s death, and it is taking a long time for him to give me the songs. Nowadays even when I call he doesn’t pick up, he doesn’t reply my messages as well. Now, I have no option than to go to court to force him to give me the songs.”
The Rufftown Records label headed by Ricky Nana Agyemang aka Bullet, the man who discovered and managed Ebony till her death released a statement last year washing their hand off all songs belonging to the late Ebony Reigns.
This decision was after Ebony’s father accused Bullet of cheating him of proceeds from Ebony’s Tribute Concert organized in honour of her daughter.
He claimed in an interview that out of the GHS39,000 profit made, Bullet only gave him GHS2000.
