3 Months After Ras Kimono’s Death, His Wife Passes Away
About three months after Reggae singer, Ras Kimono, was confirmed dead, his wife Efe Okedi, is reported to have passed away.
It is understood that Okedi’s death was similar to Kimono’s.
According to Channels Television, Efe, who died in the early hours of Sunday in her Magodo-Isheri home in Lagos, was said to have attended a family function on Saturday.
It was reported that she started complaining of ill health and was rushed to the hospital.
She reportedly died on the way to get medical attention.
Okedi, who was Kimono’s manager and a member of his band while he was alive, was the third wife of the music legend.
The head, Copyright Society of Nigeria, Chibueze Okereke, also confirmed her demise to Premium Times.
“We are so shocked to receive the news of Efe’s death this morning (Sunday). I was told that she attended a function yesterday and displayed no signs of ill health. She got home and after a while complained she was feeling funny. Sadly, she passed on before she could be rushed to the hospital. Efe and Ras Kimono were soul mates-it was impossible to see Kimono without seeing Efe by his side. She managed Kimono’s band and was an artiste turned artiste manager,” he noted.
