Ras Kimono’s wife, Efe passes on

Wife of Reggae Icon Ras Kimono, Efe Okedi, 43 is dead. Efe reportedly passed on on Sunday 23rd from an undisclosed ailment.

According to Leadership Newspaper, the Project Manager of Premiere Music, Michael Odiong confirmed her passing.

Efe’s passing comes just 3 months after the death of Ras Kimono.

Ras Kimono had slumped at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Saturday, June 9, 2018, and died the following day at a Lagos hospital.

The Under Pressure crooner was aged 60.

According to The Punch, it was gathered that Okedi attended a family function on Saturday.

She reportedly complained of a chest pain on Sunday and was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where she died.

Okedi, who was said to be the third wife of the late music legend, was also his manager and a member of his band during his lifetime.

Confirming her death, Ras Kimono’s brother-in-law, Theophilus Ehizibue, confirmed the incident.

He noted that she died from a possible heart attack.

He said; “She died this morning (Sunday) around 5.30am at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. She was not sick and never complained of any pain prior to that time. We suspect it was a heart attack. It may also have something to do with the death of her husband because they were very close.

“She was at my birthday on Saturday, which we celebrated at the Eleguishi Bar Beach.

“She was in good spirit and nothing was wrong with her until this morning when I was called that she had a chest pain. I told them to take her to a hospital. I had gone to meet them at the hospital when I was told she was dead.”
