It was reported that the late singer Ebony’s father, Mr. Opoku Kwarteng, called Bullet a thief.
According to him, Bullet gave him only two thousand (2,000) cedis out of an alleged forty thousand cedis (40k) of profit made from Ebony’s Memorial Concert held earlier this year.
Mr. Opoku Kwarteng said he got wind of the forty thousand cedis Bullet received but was disappointed that Bullet only handed him two thousand cedis.
According to him, he was only expecting Bullet to be honest in accounting to him, and it is not as if he Kwarteng want to make money off his daughter’s death because he had his own money.
The former manager of Ebony, Bullet took to his Facebook as he posted reasons why some record label couldn’t make it in the Ghanaian music industry.
Bullet mentioned the likes of defunct labels including Bandex, Kaakyie Music and others which made name in the industry but did not live long in it. He went on to explain that not all the money an artiste makes from the show belong to the artiste.
According to his post: “I now understand the reason why record labels like agiecot, goodies, Abib, first class,lexifry, lisarf, big Ben, kaakyire music, low down, big daddy, odwenanoma, vybetown, slip music, bandex e.t.c stopped bringing out artist!GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED! Record labels spend millions to blow just one artist so appreciate our effort and understand that you have ur talent and all your spiritual backings but video, music recording, music promotion, branding, welfare, costumes, air tickets, stylist, events, security, transport and everything about you the artist is money that the label spend. so don’t think any money that comes from shows and other avenues is for you the artist alone, you get what belongs to you and that is ur percentage…..!”.
However, RuffTown record has issued a press release indicating that henceforth, all songs recorded by late Ebony will be given to the father to release the songs.
