Economist and global evangelist, Dr Lawrence Tetteh has expressed shock over the death of Dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns who passed on in the late hours of Thursday.

The star is reported to have been travelling in a Jeep to Accra after a trip to Sunyani with two others when the vehicle collided head-on with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.

The driver of the VIP bus reportedly survived the accident but he is now unconscious at the same hospital receiving treatment from doctors.

While speaking with Joy news, DSP Adusei confirmed the incident and disclosed that the bodies have been deposited at Mankraso Hospital Morgue in the Ashanti Region. It has also brought into focus the issue of deadly road accidents.

The journalist who tried narrating what led to the accident claimed that the driver of the Jeep in which Ebony Reign was travelling in had attempted to avoid running into a heap of sand that was being used for road construction, but ran into the VIP bus traveling in the opposite direction instead.

Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng with stage name Ebony Reigns, was scheduled to perform at a show in Belgium on 17 February and later continue with her first European tour.

Ebony was discovered by renowned musician and entrepreneur Bullet of Ruff n Smooth fame when she sent a recording of her voice and was signed to his Rufftown record label just a day after listening to the recording.

It is therefore believed that the "maame hw3" hitmaker may have met her untimely death shortly after paying visit to her beloved family. The song was nominated for the unsung category award at the 2016 Ghana Music Awards.
