Metro News reports that he was scheduled to travel to the United States on Saturday night, but complained of not feeling too well.

He was rushed to a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, then later taken to Lagoon Hospital on the Island.

Music veterans, Tony Okoroji and Sir Shina Peters have confirmed the incident.

Ras Kimono was one of the veterans from the 90’s who continued to remain relevant on the music scene, mentoring and contributing to the Nigerian entertainment industry.
