The Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Catherine Afeku, has asked people to stop sharing pictures of Ebony’s dead body on social media.
The 20-year-old dancehall artiste died on Thursday night along with two others who were travelling with her in a Jeep from Sunyani to Accra.
Only the driver in the car survived.
The Jeep head-on collided with a VIP bus as it attempted swerving a heap of sand on the road.
Social media has been awash with pictures of Ebony’s dead body prompting Mrs Afeku “to caution against the indiscriminate sharing of the accident images and ask that we respect the sanctity and dignity of our dear departed sister in this very difficult time”.
The Minister also conveyed her sympathies to the families of Ebony and the two other deceased people, saying: “I wish to convey to the family, industry, friends, fans, and well-wishers alike, the sympathies of the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture; and the people of Ghana.
“We will consult with the family to give our songstress a befitting send-off. We mourn with the family and pray for God’s strength and guidance,” the Minister said.
