The versatile and controversial Ghanaian female dancehall artiste, Ebony, who has shot to fame in the Ghanaian music industry with her strong fashion style and her entertaining songs, has hit the market with yet another soothing one.

The new song: “Maame Hwɛ”, which was released Wednesday, December 13, 2017, treats some prominent societal issues, such as domestic violence, deception, drunkenness, smoking, effects of social media, lack of adherence to parents’ admonishments, and consequential effects of disobedience.

The dancehall artiste who in the song regrets despising her mother’s advice and rather went her way,  returns to her senses when reality dawned. She is seen in a new outfit, one different from her usual style. She is in an admirable Africa wear with a headgear to match, covering every part of the body that needs to be covered as would be espoused by African modesty, a departure from her usually scant covering that has also been her trademark.

The music video is directed by Prince Dovlo, and portrays Ebony, real name—Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, as the typical African woman.

As of the time this report was published, Maame Hwɛ, uploaded in less than 10 hours had received 62,427 views on YouTube.


While some of the comments on her YouTube video praise her for the content of the new song, others focused on her new outfit, with some still reprimanding her for failing to dress up modestly when she knows how to.
