Sensational female dancehall artiste, Ebony has been confirmed dead by the Ghanaian police.

Earlier reports stated that the RuffTown Records musician passed away in a car accident in Sunyani on Thursday night.
This was confirmed by the Ghana Police Service who spoke to Accra-based radio station, Joy FM.
COP Ken Yeboah, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, confirmed the death of Ebony while speaking in an interview with the radio station.
According to him, the songstress had a fatal accident around 11pm on Thursday on her way from Sunyani.
