Ebony makes history, wins 2018 VGMA's ‘Artiste of the Year’

Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng aka Ebony

The late Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng aka Ebony Reigns as widely predicted made history on Saturday as the first ever female to win the (VGMA) Artiste of the Year award.

Hundreds cheered at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) upon the announcement of the “Maame Hwe” music fame for deservedly winning the overall Artiste of the Year prize.

The “hustle” hit maker was nominated alongside Sarkodie, Joe Mettle, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale which she beat to annex the throne. 

The dancehall sensation on the same night also won both Album of the Year and Afro-pop Song of the Year.

The music personality rose to fame after releasing her debut single ‘Dancefloor’ at 18. She recorded resounding success with her subsequent submissions, including ‘Kupe’, ‘Sponsor’ ‘Date Your Father’, ‘Hustle’, and ‘Maame Hwe’, over her short career, which ended sadly on February 9, 2018, when she was involved in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi high way after visiting her mother.
