    Legendary Reggae Musician, Ras Kimono is Dead

    Legendary reggae musician, Ukeleke Onwubuya, popularly known as Ras Kimono, is dead.

    Raggae artist whose debut album Under Pressure, led by the single "Rum-Bar Stylée", was a big hit in the Nigerian music scene in 1989, reportedly died on Sunday in a Lagos hospital after a brief illness.
    A family source of the musician confirmed the death to the channels television station.

    He was scheduled to travel to the United States Saturday night, but complained of not feeling too well and was rushed to a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, then later taken to Lagoon Hospital in the Island.

    Music veterans, Tony Okoroji and Sir Shina Peters have confirmed the incident.

    In a recent chat with PUNCH, He said, “I have never smoked and I don’t drink alcohol. I tell people I have been a vegetarian for 37 years. Even when my friends were having sex with two girls at the same time in those days, I didn’t join them. I have never done what these girls and boys call threesome despite being famous and I am sure there are other people who have never done that too.”

    “When people attribute recklessness to youthful exuberance, I get worried because I once passed through that stage too. I believe it is all about your upbringing. The fact that you are young doesn’t mean you should be wayward.”
