Even after all her success and hits in just under one year, Ebony had so much to look forward to as she was just getting started. We take a look at some of the major moves she was just about to make in the industry before death came calling.

She Was About Travel to US on the day she died

Ebony was supposed to travel to the US on a night plane on the very same day the gory accident which took her life occurred. According to his father, his daughter’s visa was with him and she was returning to Accra from Sunyani so she could make the flight in the night. This was why she had to leave Sunyani and embark on the journey to Accra at dawn, in a bid to get home and do all the necessary arrangement and packing before leaving at night.

Pending Zylofon Deal

Zylofon since its emergence on the entertainment scene a year ago, has been on a signing spree, signing all the biggest artistes in Ghana.

Set To Host Girl Talk Concert

According to information gathered by asembi.com, Ebony was on the verge of signing a contractual agreement to replace singer, Afya as the host of the annual Girls Talk concert. She was seen as a more marketable and commercially viable female singer to host the annual event due to the level of her popularity and huge fan base, especially among the ladies.

European Tour

After her demise, artiste manager and founder of BullHaus Entertainment, Bulldog confirmed to Andy Dosty on Hitz FM that an European promoter was in talks for an Ebony Europe Tour, which was expected to take place this year once the deal was finalized. According to Bulldog, he met the promoter in Germany and the two had a discussion on how he (Bulldog) could assist the promoter get the camp of Ebony to agree to the Europe tour deal. From what was gathered, the tour was definitely going to come off.

Inevitable Ghana Music Awards night success

No female artiste has ever had the support Ebony was getting in her bid to become the first Ghanaian female artiste to win the covetous Artiste of the Year at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA). She was expected to be the star of attraction at this year’s event as all debate in the build up to the awards night was all about her. It is also without a doubt that she would have performed at the VGMA had she lived long enough to be at the event. It would have been her crowning night after a year of absolute hardworking and success, with all indication pointing to the fact that she was the undisputed artiste to carry home the Artist of the Year plague with only Shatta Wale coming close.
