Musician Ebony Reigns has died at the age of 20 after her car reportedly collided with a bus in south western Ghana.

The Afrobeat and Dancehall performer – real name Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng – was driving to Accra following a trip to Sunyani with two friends.

The Ghanaian musician was rushed to Bechem Government Hospital, where she was treated but later died from her injuries.

Her two friends were also killed in the crash, while the driver of the bus is still being treated in hospital.


Reigns released her latest album, Bonyfied, in December last year, following on from the success of her 2015 record, Dancefloor.

She was one of Ghana’s most popular rising Afrobeat stars, with her song Poison reaching the number one spot on the singles chart.
