Also reacting, economist and entrepreneur, Tony Elumelu, expressed sadness at the death of the reggae legend.
“I just heard the worst news that the Nigerian Reggae legend, and my cousin, #RasKimono has died. Ras had a huge impact on my appreciation of music & is one of the reasons I’m such a huge fan of the genre. I still remember his performance at our #HHchrismas party a two years ago,” he tweeted.
