We all certainly need a father like that of Dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns in our lives. Ebony’s dad, Nana Poku Kwarteng has disclosed that, he’s actually the one who chooses what her daughter wears to perform on stage.
He made this revelation to Graphic Showbiz and added that, her daughter showing some skin is not wrong at all as it’s part of her stage craft.
“I am supportive of anything my daughter does and anything she wears. I am not ashamed as a father, the truth is that, I choose what she wears and I bless her before she goes out to perform. Some Ghanaians are hypocrites and I am sorry but I am not one of them,” explains Mr. Kwarteng.
“I am not bothered at all. The reason is simple, I know my daughter than anyone else. What people see out there is what we want them to see and that is because she is an artiste and needs a brand that will sell. For God’s sake, she is a Dancehall artiste and she wears what will make her feel confident when performing on stage. Something that will depict the genre of music and songs she churns outs.”
Ebony’s dad also mentioned that, his daughter is not a bad girl as people have created that impression about her daughter.
“My daughter is not a bad girl, she is very calm, loving and a respectful person. Whatever she does on stage ends there. She is a different person when she gets home.”
He also spoke about the relationship between himself and his “girl as I usually call her is close to my heart.”
“We are so close that I gave her the go ahead when she told me she wanted to do music. Initially I questioned her decision because, she is a very intelligent girl and was doing extremely well in school and every parent will want his or her child to get to the top of the highest academic ladder. But she insisted music was what she wanted to do. Music is where her heart is and I gave her my blessings. I couldn’t have stopped her because these children are smart.”
Ebony’s dad was also the one who played the ‘sugar daddy’ role in her song ‘Sponsor’–Yeah, her had is amazing right?
Ebony know in real life as Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng is signed on Rufftown Records and shot into fame when she dropped ‘Kupe. She scored two nominations at the 2017 Ghana Music Awards: Dancehall Artiste of the Year and Best Reggae/ Dancehall Song of the Year .
