Ricky Nana Agyeman, popularly known in showbiz as Bullet, manager of the late Ebony Reigns,
responding to claims that Shatta Wale asked for payment from him in exchange for his
performance at Ebony’s tribute concert following a Facebook post from Bullet himself
has said that the artiste in question was not Shatta Wale.           
Bullet yesterday in a Facebook post said, “some of our Ghanaian artiste are
very hypocrite, you came to Ebony’s one week observation because the numbers
were there and again it was being telecast live on air and some of you came there
to use the platform.” “Now, you are asking me to pay you for her tribute concert,I
thought you loved her as you claimed you did on stage at her one week, this is pure
hypocrisy.” “Big ups to all the artistes who have decided to support us, we are very
grateful.”            Speaking to Sammy Flex of Zylofon 102.1 FM on the Showbiz
Agenda show, Bullet trashed claims that the artiste in question was Shatta Wale and
that he refuses to mention the name of the artiste. He said “ People are saying on
social media that it is Shatta Wale, it is not Shatta Wale please, I will reveal the
artiste after the show.” However, when asked if the artiste could be Yaa Pono,
Bullet only reaffirmed that he will not mention the name of the artiste
yet.According to the manager of the 'taking over' hitmaker, Shatta Wale, Julio
Cyriaan oOlympio, Shatta could not perform at the concert because he will not be in
the country on the said date and as of today, 16th June he has already left Ghana.The
concert is said to have been slated for Friday, March 23rd,organized by Ruff Town
Entertainment, in collaboration with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), the
Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and Kasapreko Company Limited in honor of the
late Ebony Reigns whose sad demise happened on the 8th of February this year.
According to the organizers the concert will be held at the Trade Fair Centre and
some of the artistes billed for the concert are, Becca, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, VIP, 
R2bees, Edem, Feli Nuna and many more.According to Bullet, none of the artiste who
were present at Ebony’s one week observation pledged support in cash or kind, but
rather changed the course of the event, he added that most of the artistes wanted to
perform at the event and therefore turned the entire event into a show. However,
there have been a few companies who are supporting them after the demise of the
dancehall songstress.           
Bullet also noted that, money raised at the concert
is geared towards supporting the family of the fallen star and also towards the
launch of a foundation in Ebony’s name in support of victims of accidents. Speaking
on the same interview, Bullet confirmed that Ebony had finalized a contract with
Kasapreko as well as Hi5chocho malt before her sudden death but Kasapreko has since
her passing been very supportive.
