Ebony, born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, died in a car accident on Thursday, February 8, 2018, together with two others – Francisca Kuri, her childhood friend, and Francis Atsu Vondee of the Ghana Air Force, believed to be her bodyguard.
They were returning to Accra from Abesim, near Sunyani in the Brong-Ahafo Region, where they had gone to pay a visit to Ebony’s mother when they met their unfortunate death.
The final funeral rites and burial service for the late Ebony will be held on March 24 at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
