Outspoken radio and television personality, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa known in showbiz as Afia Schwarzenegger has spat venom on renowned marriage counsellor, Reverend George Lutterodt over some remarks he has been making about the lifestyle of the late Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng better known as Ebony Reigns.
A day to the One Week celebration of Ebony’s passing, Afia Schwarzenegger in the company of Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah (Mzbel) paid a visit to Nana Opoku Kwarteng, the deceased’s father at his Dansoman residence to sympathize with the bereaved family.
The comedienne in an interaction with Ebony’s father did not mince words as she attacked Counselor Lutterodt for suggesting that the late dancehall act was a burden to the society.
“It hurts me as much as it angers me that you allowed Counsellor Lutterodt to sit here and say what he likes and post it online” she told Ebony’s father. “I don’t know how you perceive Ohemaa as her parent, but no human being is to be thrown onto a refuse dump. If that were the case, my mother would have dumped me first.”
“No one came into this world with a manual for nurturing a child. No one is perfect, and every household has its own rules. Counsellor Luttrodt is not perfect. We are entertaining too many people” she lamented.
“He sat on TV and said the nastiest things. It infuriates and saddens me at the same time. We do not dump people into trash bins. The entertainment industry is one that requires people to do certain things to brand themselves.”
“Ohemaa did not strip past 37 year old Beyonce. Kim Kardashian is way older than Ohemaa. Individuals in every profession require a unique style to brand themselves. It’s enough.
“We have had enough of the noise surrounding her death. As family, you should put your feet down and demand the nonsense stop immediately. My heart can no longer handle it. She is human too,” a visibly emotional Afia Schwarzenegger noted.
Ebony courted a lot of controversy with her actions and inactions.
Her dressing and stage performances especially was a sore point for critics.
Ebony was pronounced dead at the Bechem Government Hospital after a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway – a few days before she was scheduled to start a European tour.
A military officer and a female acquaintance identified as Francis Atsu Vondee and Frankie respectively, who were also on board the Jeep which clashed with a VIP bus died as well.
The one week observation of her passing is scheduled for today, February 18, 2018 at St. Martin De Porres School, Dansonman.
