Ebony’s Death: I Hope They’re Happy Now

Gospel artist Sonnie Badu did not mince words following the death of songstress Ebony Reigns, inferring her numerous critics are happy.

Ebony died in a motor crash at Bechem in the Brong Ahafo region during the wee hours of Friday. Two other occupants on board a Jeep with registration number AS 497—16 from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision.

In a tweet to commiserate with family and friends of the ‘Poison’ hit maker, Badu said:

Rest well ebony , I hope they are happy now !!

Badu had been an ardent supporter of the “Haters Anthem” singer, despite a barrage of criticism from a section of Ghanaians over her appearance and music videos.

When a follower reacted to his comment, he responded:

My dear brother in our Akan language there is a saying that goes asem asa .. I feel we were hard on her hence her rebellious attitude.. a great talent is gone .. https://t.co/IR0KAoL9kX

What would JESUS have done if he had encountered her?
