RuffTown Records have decided to completely sever ties with the late Ebony Reigns and all her unreleased projects after rifts between the record label and the family of the late artiste continue to be on the rise.
In an interview with Accra-based Adom FM, Mr Kwarteng claimed that Bullet gave him just GHc2000 out of total GHc39,999 proceeds that they made from the organisation of a tribute concert for the late Ebony.
In a press statement released by Bullet [CEO of RuffTown Records], he stated that since the father has been going about levelling 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.
