The Ghanaian dancehall artiste whose life was tragically cut shot in a car crash a week ago will be laid to rest on March 17, her family announced Sunday.

At a ceremony in Accra to observe one week since the musician died, family members said they were yet to decide on the venue and burial place for the female musician.

The event held at Dansoman Sunday morning attracted scores of people in the entertainment and creative industry, especially musicians who have been paying tribute to Ebony.

Born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, the 20-year-old Ebony died at a period her young music career was soaring with back-to-back hits. She turned 21 years on Friday, February 16.

Two of three others who were travelling with Ebony, also died in the accident. They are Lance Corporal Francis Atsu Vondee of the Ghana Air force stationed at the Accra Air force Base in Burma Camp and Franky, Ebony’s best friend.
