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 pic.twitter.com/UXcPRfdbDX— Tony O. Elumelu, CON (@TonyOElumelu) June 10, 2018
