Ricky Nana Agyemang, the manager of Ebony, has rescinded his earlier decision to release songs of the late dancehall artiste that were not out before her sudden demise.
Ricky, popularly known as Bullet in the music circles, has stated in a press statement that since the father has been going about leveling allegations of exploitation against him, he is no longer going to deal with Ebony’s songs – not even the ones he wrote.
“With this, the label will not be releasing any songs from the 90s Bard Gyal. Rufftown Records owns 60% of Ebony’s unreleased songs, but we are giving away full ownership to her father Mr. Opoku Kwarteng,” the statement reads. This comes few days after Ebony’s father accused Bullet of giving him just GHc 2,000 out of GHc 39,000 he made from the music concert organised in memory of Ebony when she passed away. In a Facebook post that contains the press statement, Bullet also vented his anger on Mr. Kwarteng for making unsubstantiated claims against him.
He mentioned all the monies Ebony’s father has gotten from Rufftown Records since her daughter’s demise.
