It has been revealed that the final burial rites of the late Reggae legend, Ras Kimono, have commenced.
According to Punch Metro, on Thursday morning, the late musician’s body left the TOS Funeral Home where it has been preserved since his June 10, 2018 death.
A convoy of vehicles with full loads of family, friends and associates lined the impeccable road that leads to Magodo — the late musician’s place of residence — as the hearse bearing his remains was driven out of the lush environment where the TOS Funeral Home is.
The dreadlocked musician had reportedly slumped at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, while waiting to board a flight to the United States, on the night of Saturday, June 9.
According to sources close to him, Kimono was immediately rushed to an unnamed hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, and then taken to another hospital on the Island, where he later died on Sunday morning.
Dispelling certain speculations that Kimono might have been battling a serious ailment resulting in his demise, his manager, Daddy Faizer, had said that the singer underwent a medical test about three weeks prior and that his doctors had said he was in good shape
Kimono’s remains made the onward journey to his Onicha Olona ancestral home in the Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State on Thursday morning.
