Meet ‘EBONY’: The Fast Rising Artiste ‘Disconcerting’ the Dancehall Landscape in Ghana

2 min


A large number of people find close unadulterated connections between Ghana and Jamaica—mostly when it comes to music and food.

The global popularity of dancehall music, rooted in Jamaica’s vibrant culture means this genre of music has wider acceptance in almost every ‘liberated’ country. But when it comes to Ghana, both dancehall and reggae occupy special places on our broad musical spectrum—with touching influences.

Even if not wholly pure, Ghanaians’ obsession with dancehall and the stable growth of this genre of music championed by contemporary acts like Samini, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have opened the dancehall gates for female Ghanaian artistes such as Kaakie, MzVee and a few others to take center stage.

When it comes to dancehall, the strength of an artiste’s delivery vastly dwells on the beat and how well he/she is able to mimic the uniquely used language-patio.

Currently ‘disconcerting’ the dancehall landscape in Ghana is a young pulsating female artiste-Ebony, whose perfect command of the uniquely used dancehall language places her far ahead of her already in the game competitors like Kaakie and Mzvee.

Ebony, 19,  (real name Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng) has caught our attention with her latest single-Dancefloor—which enjoys an observable superiority over any of the recent works of the other female Ghanaian dancehall artistes.

Beyond talent, it’s obvious she has taken time to master her craft—giving music lovers a good taste of dancehall, made in Ghana.

Interestingly, we are not the only people who have noticed her excellence and have been constantly pushing the PLAY button on Youtube for Dancefloor.

Reggie Rockstone had this to say about Ebony’s Dancefloor’s music video when GhanaCelebrities.Com pushed it his way;  “Cute, and the clarity of picture quality is great! Sexiness is not over the top like all do Deez days smh! Tune itself is club friendly so she is on the right track and her reference to old school joints is very impressive! ( boomshakatak was a legendary ole tune by born jamericns), this shows she knows sum!
