According to him, Bullet gave him GHC2,000 out of an alleged GHC40,000 of profit made from Ebony’s Memorial Concert held earlier this year.
Mr. Opoku Kwarteng said he got wind of the forty thousand cedis Bullet received but was disappointed that Bullet only handed him two thousand cedis.
According to him, he was only expecting Bullet to be honest in accounting to him, and it is not as if he Kwarteng want to make money off his daughter’s death because he had his own money.
According to him, he was only expecting Bullet to be honest in accounting to him, and it is not as if he Kwarteng want to make money off his daughter’s death because he had his own oney.
But it seems Bullet is hurt by Mr. Opoku-Kwarteng’s claim and has called him a greedy man.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Bullet said he now understands why some music groups and musicians did not prosper in the industry.
According to him, it is greed on the part of their family members that caused them to fade away quickly in the industry. He went on to explain that not all the money an artiste makes from the show belong to the artiste.
Bullet added that management also has a percentage because they care and provide for the artiste in terms of costume, branding, promotion, videos, and many others.
Not long after this post, Bullet posted a press statement announcing that his outfit had left all the unreleased tracks of Ebony to the family and severed all ties with him.
Accompanying the press release was another lengthy post which listed monies Bullet claims Ebony’s father has received since the death of the Dancehall star.

Ebony, before her unfortunate demise in February this year, was under the management of RuffTown Records owned by Bullet.
Within two years, she had taken over the music industry and her success was tied to Bullet.
Unfortunately after her death, her father, Mr. Opoku Kwarteng, has leveled all kinds of accusations and allegations against Bullet.
