Six years on: Remembering the ’90s Bad Gyal’

Six years have passed since the untimely demise of the ever-vibrant and immensely talented Ghanaian dancehall and Afrobeats artiste,  Ebony Reigns.

On the anniversary of her passing, the music industry and fans alike take a moment to reflect on the impact she had on the Ghanaian music scene.

Ebony, born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, captivated audiences with her sultry voice and fearless approach to her craft. Her breakthrough hit, “Poison,” quickly established her as a force to be reckoned with. She was discovered by Bullet from Ruff n Smooth.

Tragically, her promising career was cut short on February 8, 2018, together with her assistant and longtime friend, Franklina Yaa Nkansah Kuri soldier Atsu Vondee in a fatal car accident whilst returning to Accra from Sunyani where she had paid a visit to her mum.

The electrifying dancehall songstress went on to posthumously be awarded the 2018 VGMA Artist of the Year award after the most spectacular breakout year in Ghanaian music history.

Remembering the “90s Bad Gyal”   is not only a homage to her musical prowess but also a recognition of her groundbreaking contributions to the industry. She fearlessly challenged societal norms through her music, addressing social issues and empowering young women.

The void left by the ‘Sponsor’ hitmaker’s passing is palpable, but her legacy lives on through the timeless imprint she left on Ghanaian music. Family, fans and fellow artists continue to celebrate her impact, ensuring that the spirit of the “90s Bad Gyal” endures through her unforgettable melodies and the indomitable mark she left on the hearts of those who cherished her artistry.
