Reverend Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has been in the news lately for comments he passed during his sermon at Ebony’s funeral service last Saturday.

The preacher who doubles as the spiritual father of the late Ebony Reigns has said he paid for the casket, hearse and took care of the mortuary bills.

However, Dr. Lawrence Tetteh has been criticised for making his act of generosity public and the black colour of the coffin with symbols depicting the signs of ‘illuminati’ embossed on it, has also been questioned.

But reacting to the criticisms in a conversation with Maame Yeboah Asiedu on Adom TV’s Gangaa Chat Room, the founder and leader of UK-based Worldwide Miracle Outreach said the black coffin was the choice of the late singer’s father.

“I had gone with Bishop Quaye and a woman by name Julie and Ebony’s parents to buy the coffin. I told Ebony’s parents to choose the coffin they wanted for me to pay because she was their child and I couldn’t decide for them. What I paid for was not what was used in burying her. On the day of the funeral, Ebony’s father called and told me that, on the evening they were going for her body, he saw another coffin which looked nice and so he settled on that one rather and that it was the same price as the one he’d earlier picked. I didn’t see the coffin until the funeral event as I was not around when they went for the body. I must be honest with you, I wasn’t happy when I saw that coffin.

He added: “I’m over 50 years but I’ve never seen a black coffin in my life. What I’m saying is that, I and my team saw that black coffin only when we got to the funeral grounds. So I asked Ebony’s father about it and he said he found the black one nicer than what I’d seen earlier and that I told him to make a choice and that’s exactly what he’s done. He’s the father and so he had the right to make certain decisions. Personally, I don’t judge people because nobody knows the secret places of our hearts.”
