Rapper Sarkodie is of the opinion that late Ghanaian artiste Ebony inspired and empowered women with her songs.
He believes she was to a large extent misunderstood by people.
“the good thing is she is actually using that in a positive light. She is empowering women. She is using some of the music to inspire as well,” expressed Sarkodie to Akosua Konadu, host of Talk show ‘The Hard Truth.’
“..I think its art and it’s business. That’s her strategy and that’s what works for her. People tend to miss the message of what artistes stand for, what they are trying to do.”
Ebony died at the Bechem Government Hospital after the vehicle she was travelling in was involved in an accident.
Her friend, Franky Kuri, and a Military Man, Atsu Vondee, who is said to be her bodyguard on board a Jeep from Sunyani also died in the head-on collision with a VIP bus heading towards Sunyani from Kumasi.
Ebony courted a lot of controversy with her actions and inactions.
Her dressing and stage performances especially was a sore point for critics, and some watchers of the music industry in Ghana.
