Starboy Kwarteng, Father of the late Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, who was popularly known as Ebony Reigns has said that Ghanaians were prejudicial towards his daughter due to her sense of fashion.
According to the father of the deceased, “people always made the mistake of criticizing her” and were oblivious to the fact that she dressed the way she did because of her life as an entertainer.
“Ebony was just doing her work as an artiste. The way she dressed and carried herself was for her craft and nothing else,” Showboy Kwarteng told Doctor Cann on Happy 98.9FM’s Ayekoo After Drive.
He disclosed that his daughter took inspiration from the larger dancehall community, hence her choice of clothing. “Dancehall artistes around the world were dressing in the same manner,” he shared.
Describing his late daughter as a pacesetter, Starboy Kwarteng said, “This is Ghana for you. They always don’t know what’s up. Someone always leads the path for others to follow.”
Conservative Ghanaians constantly criticized the superstar’s mode of dressing because they believed that was not how a true woman should present herself. However, other liberals such as Mzbel came to her defense saying that the industry she was in required that she attracted attention by any means possible.
