The Chief Executive Officer of Rufftown Records, Ricky Nana Agyemang, who is also the manager of late dancehall songstress Ebony has stated that his client always had a premonition about her early death.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Okay FM, Bullet as he is popularly known said the late songstress had prophets and others warning her of her untimely death.
“Ebony said a woman told her she was going to be a big star but she will die at the peak of her career,” Bullet said.
Ebony, real name Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, did not survive a car crash last Thursday on the Accra-Sunyani highway.
Already, tributes have come from far and wide for the late multiple hitmaker.
There were reports that Ebony’s management team saw her death coming, based on a group chat sighted by 3news.com.
But the Rufftown Records CEO said the late songstress consistently told him about her death and things she had been told concerning her untimely demise.
“Ebony herself told me she was going to die young, God is my witness,” Bullet swore.
According to him, management took several steps to follow directions given by some prophets to protect the songstress.
“We cancelled a lot of shows because of Ebony’s death prophecies. We did everything possible to prevent her death but God knows best.”
The former Ruff N Smooth member said he gave his best in ensuring that Ebony became the rising star she desired to be.

He also said Rufftown Records as a management had no idea Ebony was travelling to Sunyani.
“Information we got as management was that she was travelling to Tamale.”
According to Bullet, they had no idea about the Jeep driver, purported personal assistant or bodyguard.
He further said there were times when he had misunderstandings with the late songstress, hence her ability to take certain decisions without the consent of management.
Contract agreement between Ebony and Rufftown
The Rufftown Records CEO said the late songstress Ebony was not under strict management as reported in the media.
“Ebony’s signing was between myself, her father and herself. Ebony was not under any strict management,” he said.
He debunked allegations made by CEO of Zylophone Media Nana Appiah that the late songstress had to settle management of Rufftown Records with some $100,000 as a bail-out fee.
Bullet also debunked rumours making rounds about the late songstress being a lesbian.
“People should stop judging Ebony,” he said, ‘she was never a lesbian. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Ebony was a good girl, people don’t know her.”
Meanwhile, preparations are underway for the one-week celebration of the late songstress on Sunday, February 18.
