Ras Kimono's wife joins him in the great beyond 3 months after

Efemena Okedi, the third wife of late reggae icon, Ras Kimono has unfortunately given up the ghost just like many feared when her husband passed on three months ago, Sunday, June 10, to be precise.

Family sources say Efe who was Ras Kimono’s closest wife and the manager of the late musician’s band, died on Sunday morning after complaining of chest pains.

Reports say she was earlier rushed to two hospitals which had no resident doctors before she was taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) where she unfortunately gave up the ghost.

Her demise was also confirmed by Chibueze Okereke of the Copyright Society of Nigeria.

He said; “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,” Chibueze noted.

The late mother of one who hailed from Delta State bore a daughter for the late musician with many pointing to grief for the cause of her death as she showed no signs of illness before she passed on.

Her remains have reportedly been deposited at the mortuary of LASUTH.
