Efemena Okedi, wife of the late Nigerian Reggae star, Ras Kimono, passed away in the early hours of Sunday, the 23rd of September, 2018, according to family sources.
Efe, who was said to have attended a family function the previous day. Saturday, had complained of ill-health. She was subsequently being rushed to hospital from her Magodo-Isheri, Lagos home, when she died on the way, before she could get medical attention.
She was Kimono’s third and closest wife and they had a daughter between them. She was also his manager and a member of his band.
Okedi’s death comes just three months after the death of her husband, Ekeleke Elumelu, (better known as Ras Kimono) who passed on, June 10th, 2018, in Lagos, after a heart attack. He was interred in Asaba on August 25th, 2018, just two days short of a month to Efe’s death.
