Nana Opoku Kwarteng, father of late dancehall artiste Ebony Reigns, has stated the he will forever protect the legacy of his daughter.
He said he will continue to organise birthday parties in honour of his late daughter.
Starboy, as he is popularly called, has come under heavy criticism for attempting to celebrate Ebony’s birthday, which falls on 16 February 2020.
But speaking on Radio Universe, Mr Kwarteng said he is unperturbed about the criticisms, arguing that personalities such as his late daughter are hard to come by, thus, need to be remembered always.
“People like my daughter Ebony are not common; they are once in a lifetime. If you have a daughter of this personality, would you let her legacy die off just like that? I want all of us to keep the memory of Nana Hemaa with us, that’s why I would be celebrating her birthday every year,” Mr Kwarteng indicated.
Ebony died on 8 February 2018 in a motor accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road when she and her bodyguard, as well as her friend were returning to Accra.
Last year, Mr Kwarteng celebrated his late daughter’s birthday by organising a jollof party for her fans at his residence.
