Ras Kinomo’s third and closest wife, Efemena Okedi, is dead.
This comes barely a month after the reggae legend was buried in his home town in Delta State, Nigeria.
According to Premium Times, an online newspaper, she died in the early hours of Sunday in Lagos.
Confirming the new was, Copyright Society of Nigeria boss, Chibueze Okereke, who spoke to Premium Times.
Mr Okereke said Mrs Okedi had attended an event the day before and showed no sign of ailment.
In his words; “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.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
